PANIC FOR THE VIBE (PFTV) is an American Pop, Soul, Rock, Reggae and Blues band from Bristow, Virginia, formed in 2013. The band’s line-up includes Larry Thomas (vocals and guitar), John Graves (lead guitar and vocals), Briane Russell (bass), Jana Patterson (vocals and keyboard) and Charles Smith (drums).
PFTV’s music is highlighted by bass-driven grooves, reggae rhythms, and soulful cadences, sometimes alternating between funk, pop, blues and reggae within the same song.Their music often contains mood-altering, harmonic minor-based or bluesy vocals and guitar solos, and rhythmically-improvised heavy bass lines.
PFTV’s performance experience includes a Mid-Atlantic tour for three years, performing at concerts for as many as 6,000. The band currently performs locally in the DC Metro area at bars, clubs, wineries, corporate events and private parties. Larry Thomas, the band’s frontman, also performs as an acoustic solo artist, bringing the same soulful, bluesy sound to a personal level.
