Vinx does not copy well-known singers - his art is original and emotional and he perfectly finds himself between the great standards and the present hit soul music. You can hear in his songs a lot of funk, blues, r&b and even bossa nova. With his musical eloquence and impeccable vocal technique, great sense of rhythm and musical fun, Vinx is the perfect beginning to the festival!
~ Dionizi Piatkowski, President, Era Jazzu
Whether solo, in duet/trio/quartet, or leading a full 20 piece big band, VINX is the consummate performer. His career began in what many would consider to be the most challenging of assignments - a multi-year stadium tour as the SOLO opening act for STING! But this proved to be the perfect set-up for VINX and secured his place in the hearts and minds of fans around the world.
Today, VINX regularly performs his ever evolving solo concerts in venues that range from the most intimate clubs to the largest stadiums. When he is able to bring additional guest artists on tour with him, he assembles lineups that speak to the mood of the moment - an innovative jazz trio, romantic voice & piano duets, or an exciting and sophisticated voice and percussion troupe that may even feature a tap dancer.
When he is not performing solo, VINX has been fortunate to be able to collaborate and tour with some of the best musicians in the business: Jamaaladeen Tacuma, Will Calhoun, Reggie Washington, Armand Sabaal Lecco, Alain Mallet, Swiss Chris, Munyungo Jackson, Bill Summers, Angel Figueroa, Mitchell Long, Doug Wimbish, Patrick Dorcean, Cyro Batista, JoJo Mayer, Dave Fiuczynski, Chris Loftlin, Leo Quintero, Joey Heredia, Greg Poree, Keith Jones and many others.
