I did some research.

夕べ is the same as 昨夜 (さくや) Here the kanji represent the meaning and not the sound昨夜-pronounced-as-ゆうべ-yuube-and-今日-as-きょう-kyou

昨晩 is more formal and less used. A more common way to say last night is "昨日の夜"

Yahoo search hit amounts confirm these statements:

"昨日の夜" 61.8 million

"昨夜" 2.4 million

"夕べ 1.7 million

"昨晩" 0.6 million


昨晩 is less used
