Beginning in high school year of 2011, the crucial desire to share their love for Reggae and make music was manifested by Aaron Valdez, Marc Donini and Kennedy Peneueta-Peapea. These three eventually would start their first project illuminated as High Tides consisting of close high school friends, Ruben Siqueiros (Bass), Juan "Chubbs" Ramirez (Lead Guitar), Jacob Sanchez (Percussion) and Horn section, Michael Blanco (Trombone), Mauricio Ruiz (Sax/Trumpet) and Thomas Rivera (Trombone). The band was spreading in their hometown of Carson, Ca very fast, until the liability of a taken name was made aware of them. Eventually the band would meet a mutual agreement for personal purposes.
Soon after, Ital Vibes, regrouped in late 2012 and was revived into what now stands as an 8 piece team with the addition of Jacob's brother Juston Sanchez (Rhythm Keys), Manhattan Beach bredren Andy Deemer (Guitar), very good friend from Hermosa Beach, Evan Hein (Bass) and the eclectic Reggae/Hip-Hop influence of Jeremy "Levi Dozier" Kary as second vocals/harmonies. Steffano Lasso, who indeed brought them to higher heights, partially filled in as Bassie for that time being and still remains as backup Keysie.
Throughout these short years of moving forward, Ital Vibes have been honored to share and play Roots Music with many other artists such as, Tribal Seeds, FIJI, Fortunate Youth, The Simpkin Project, Stranger, Arise Roots, Rian Basilio & the Roosters, Beyond I Sight, Inna Vision (Maui, HI), True Press, Tribal Theory, Through the Roots, The Steppas (Hilo, HI), Anuhea, Rebel Souljahsl and even some of their favorite popular Living Legends like Bushman, Johny Osbourne, Capleton, Sister Nancy, Mykal Rose, Marlon Asher, Alborosie and The Original Wailers. They have also had the opportunity to be a part of a few Music Festivals including, the Good Vibes Music Festival 2014 in Lake Elsinore, Ca, "The Show" Reggae Festival at the Queen Mary in Long Beach, Ca and the Uplift Music & Arts Festival in Riverside, Ca. Together this group of young Reggae ambassadors have strived to bring forth the truth through positive, heavy hitting Roots Reggae Music!
