Vinx will be preparing for a March trip to Ghana and Europe by making a solo appearance at The Evening Muse in Charlotte this Friday, February 2nd as part of the Gallery Crawl. This is a follow up to a well-received appearance at the Tosco Music Party by the performer who Stevie Wonder called, the gift you give to someone you really care about."
Vinx's most recent CD, Grits & Pate, is a 32-track compilation of the singer/percussionist's favorite and most popular songs that feature both raw and more highly produced tracks, thus the appropriately named title. One major city newspaper recently described Vinx in the following way Imagine Bobby McFerrin's sunny disposition blended with tribal drum patterns, L.A.'s and Babyface's cool-headed approach to dance-pop juxtaposed with the instinctual elemental hooks of early Police. And Prince's harsh, minimalist backgrounds supporting vocals that rival Nat King" Cole's for sweetness ... a powerful effortless tunesmith and a vocalist of uncommon subtlety and understanding."
This year Vinx is celebrating his semi-centennial" and his schedule shows there is no slowing him down. February also finds him hosting an intimate Valentine's weekend and recital dinner at his home in historic McRae, Georgia, then follows with appearances at the Folk Alliance and NACA (National Association for Campus Activities) conventions. He then returns to Accra, Ghana as Artistic Director for the country's 50th anniversary celebration before a short European tour.
