Vinx

Postby mm » Fri Sep 22, 2006 11:01 pm

I met Vinx a week ago and am currently immersed completely in his sound. I saw him tonight (opening for Marshall Crenshaw), and Vinx was/is amazing. It is just he and his custom-made drum. What a voice and incredible beat and presence. He is a veteran of the music field, and listening to his latest CD all week has been energizing and visceral to me. I recommend highly. He now shares Ellis' management, along with Antje and Flynn.

My introduction to Vinx was years ago when he was included on one of the two This is Boston, not Austin CDs...(that I purchased for the Ellis Paul content.) ;) I've never seen Vinx live, though. :(

There have to be those who witness the art, who love and appreciate what they have been privileged to see." -- Ann Patchett in Bel Canto.

Bonnie and I first heard Vinx about a year ago, Club Passim, Flynn was opening. We went to hear Flynn and decided whe just check out who this Vinx band was, we even moved our seats to the aisle so we wouldn't disturb anyone when we got up to leave after a song or two.

Needless to say, we were both hooked, around song 5 or 6, Bonnie leaned in to me and said "I'm staying, you can leave if you want", My reply was..." I was gonna say the same to you!".

Vinx is absolutely amazing!

He was very impressive at the show in Natick for the song he was on with Ellis, and I wish I had been able to return last Friday when he opened for Marshall Crenshaw. Very different and very cool.....

Yes, Jeff, I didn't include that in the mention that Vinx had come up on stage with Ellis at that show of Ellis' the week prior (he was seated next to my husband and I and I didn't know that until he went on stage!). Consider that as just a glimpse.

There really is no way to describe Vinx, and CDs don't do him justice. He uses his whole body as an instrument. He will sing entire songs using nothing but his voice, a tap or two on his chest and it is completely mesmerizing.

If you get a chance to see him don't miss it!!

Vinx has taken the concept of the Living Room Concert to the extreme. Unfortunately it is out of my price range, but he is hosting a musical weekend at his home in Georgia.
