Vertigo Vibe was formed in 2003 by Randy Stout. He had a clear vision...he wanted to assemble a group of exceptional musicians who took their hobby seriously, but had a focus on fun! One by on, he made connections and talked to a lot of musicians. After a month of screening, he set up the first get together....as no one knew each other. That first meeting of the band members in February, 2003, in Randy's attic, proved to be fate, as the formation of Vertigo Vibe finally took shape and those original guys rocked (Scott Murphy, Jim McCauley, Ken Peffley, and Dale Hatt)! Vertigo Vibe has played in 9 PA counties for more than 800 gigs, and ran without interruption for 15 years…until 2018. At that time, Randy dissolved Vertigo Vibe and joined Block Party. He also and started focusing on providing sound & lighting services for The Mike Foltz Band. This led to also providing sound & lighting for a NEPA band, Dirty Roxx (based in the Lehigh Valley). From there, Randy added The Hemlock Crue (Harrisburg), and a few Berks county bands, including Storm, Mere Image,and Firestorm; and continues to offer services to othe bands in need. As Vertigo Vibe is now resurrected, re-formed and re-structured, we continue to play steasdily (though less often) across 7 PA counties; but Randy still has the same sense of excitement about his new bandmates...all very experienced and highly talented. Who could ask for anything more? INTRODUCING...
The guys in vertigo vibe...
Front man, Vocalist, Recording Artist and Songwriter of over 40 published songs, Warren is a true audience-engaging personality. He has a soulful and edgy vocal style, influenced by the best funk and rock bands in existence. With countless performances to his credit, his best is yet to come. The “Admiral” says “Vertigo Vibe allows me total artistic freedom while performing the most unforgettable music of all time”. Wartren has been in several bands over the years; and just prior to Vertigo Vibe, he had his own band called The Silverhawks.
We are happy to have Jim Dolinski return to Vertigo Vibe on lead guitar, effective January, 2024 (after a 5-year leave of absence). Jim was a regular part of the Vibe from 2009 thru 2018; and he brings a solid guitar sound and soulful licks to the band....complimenting the rest of the guys. In his glorious past, Jim was the guitarist for the band, Bunchafunk, for about 5 years.
Drums & Percussion
We first met Jeff "on-the-job" at our gig on March 19th. He had all of 5 days to review and learn our Set List; but he played every song and nailed every break like hed been with us for years. Since we were so impressed and wanted the opportunity to work with him again, Randy asked if he'd be interested in doing more gigs....and the rest is history. Jeff was previously in the band Mere Image; and also Remains of Radio. We are delighted and honored to have Jeff join the Vertigo Vibe team!
Management & Founder
Although getting a late start in the music business (first band was in 1984), Randy started Vertigo Vibe in 2003 and kept it going until 2018. He took 2 years off; joined The Block Party Band in 2018; started doing sound for a couple of Harrisburg-based bands (Mike Foltz Band & The Hemlock Crue) and a Lehigh Valley band (Dirty Roxx). In 2020, in the midst of the "pandemic", he revived Vertigo Vibe with a brand new line-up! The "new" Vibe is made up of 5 very talented guys from other bands he's worked with along the way. We started gigging again June, 2021; and have ere-developed a following along the way!
Bass & Vocals
Greg recently joined Vertigo Vibe in 2024 and brings enthusiasm to the stage. In addition to The Vibe, Greg also plays with That 80's Band. Greg has been a good fit for Vertigo Vibe and we welcome hime the the band!
On "standby", we still have Dan Shartle filling in on Bass & Vocals. Dan has been very helpful to Vertigo Vibe by "subbing" on bass & vocals for a few gigs in 2021; and has continue to be there for us throughout 2022-2024. He has been quite an asset to the Vibe, great to work with, and we all appreciate his help and dedication. Dan has his own band as well, called Run For Cover.
Keyboards & Vocals
Vince is the consummate musician and performer. Previously working with The Mike Foltz Band, Vince provided the piano, organ, synth, sax, and special sounds making each song special and true to the original. He also provided lead vocals and harmony back-up. Vince is a man of many hats, a welcome addition, and an integral part of Vertigo Vibe.
