(Jul, 2003) - Vince lives and works in Virginia Beach, Virginia with his wife Velda and granddaughter Nicole.
Musical Background: I was born in 1940. My earliest memories of music were at the age of three. My mother always had the radio or records playing. At age six I started to play the ukulele. I found that after I learned the chords to one song, I could play the same chord structure for other songs. I converted the chords to an old upright piano in my grandmothers basement and added melody with my right hand and became a piano pounder.
At age 15, while in the 10th grade in Baltimore, I started a seven piece rock and roll band; played lots of record hops and a local TV dance show called "The Buddy Dean Show." We recorded a record on the old Jay Wing label but the record company went bankrupt (probably because of us). In 1958, we started to play local clubs with a show based on Prima's stuff, even with a Keely Smith impersonator. We did quite well, but the band eventually fell apart, so I joined the Air Force. Upon returning, I soloed at piano bars and sang, but the night life was not compatible with marriage so that ended my professional efforts.
I started playing for my own enjoyment in the 80's with the old Yamaha PSR's 5700, 6700, 6000 and now I own a Tyros. I love all music but particularly like the 40's, 50's and 60's. Favorite artists include Mancini, Dr John, Prima, Fats Domino, TD and all the big bands of the 40's.
I hope you enjoy this album as much as I have enjoyed all the artists on psrtutorial. This is a fantastic site. Thanks to Joe for the opportunity to contribute.
