Our Story: VYBE was founded back in January of 2009 by James with the initial thought and vision of providing entertainment services as a side job while attending college. Little did he know 10 years later the company has done nothing but continuously grown year after year. Servicing nearly 500 weddings, countless public gigs, charity events, School Dances, and even having the opportunity to play at locations like House of Blues Cleveland. Our goal from day one has been to provide all clients a large “Variety of Your Best Entertainment” and at that moment, the light went off and VYBE was born.
VYBE Entertainment has had the pleasure and great opportunity to be featured on Clevelands Hot List 2017 for Best Wedding DJs in Northeast Ohio with top rankings the years prior. Through the years VYBE has brought on additional package offerings for Weddings along with many other events such as; Photo-Booths, Uplighting, and Officiant Services. Many people ask “why don’t you list your prices on the services you offer?” Thats simple in our eyes we try to ensure every event is different by customizing each of our packages to be tailored fit for the clients requesting services. VYBE puts in the extra effort to ensure your next event is seamless and original while always providing the right VYBE for the occasion!
