VINX : live at REAL ART WAYS

Tonight, August 17th from 6-9PM, Vinx will be bringing his One man. One voice. One drum style art to the floor of the REAL ART WAYS in Hartford Connecticut as part of their alternative multidisciplinary arts CREATIVE COCKTAIL event held every third thurday of each month. It is written that once upon a time (1990) in Santa Monica, CA, a famous musician (that would be Sting) wandered into a club to wait out the rain and was so enthralled with the performer on stage (that would be Vinx) that he signed him to a record deal and helped produce his debut album (that would be Rooms in My Fatha’s House). Although he had a gig back in 1978 as a percussionist for Taj Mahal, Vinx was a world-class triple-jumper. In fact, in 1980 he posted the second best jump in the world, but the United States boycotted the Moscow Olympics, and after an injury at the 1984 Olympic trials in Los Angeles, Vinx embarked on his musical career as a vocalist and percussionist. He recorded and toured with the likes of Ernie Watts, Rickie Lee Jones, and Toni Childs before forming his own band of drummers and hitting Europe, where he played the Montreux Jazz Festival between Miles Davis and Wayne Shorter.
The list of talented musicians that Vinx has collaborated grows as I type, be sure to check him out in Hartford or any other place you get the chance.
