We're an up-tempo original blues quartet from Asheville. We've played at many Asheville venues (5 Walnut, Asheville Guitar Bar, Oskar Blues, and others). Vince Junior Band is a great addition to a dinner/bar crowd, with volumes that allow folks to eat, dance and converse while listening to thoughtful lyrics.
Vince Junior has shared the stage with Robert Cray, Paul Geremia, and Erin McKeown. He has received a national Parents’ Choice Award and has been reviewed in Acoustic Guitar Magazine, Billboard, and Dirty Linen. He has performed at LEAF and Westfest.
Vince Junior Band Bio
"Vince Junior Band was wonderful at the Tap Haus. They were true professionals, talented musicians, and excellent at engaging and audience of all ages." Krista Stearns, Asheville Whole Foods
The Vince Junior Band has been together since 2014, playing around the Asheville area. “I think we have a unique blend of genres. You’ll hear the flavors of blues, funk, Louisiana, and Soul, coupled with some unusual topics.” Think Keb' Mo', Dr. John, and Lyle Lovett.
Vince Junior has shared the stage with Robert Cray and Paul Geremia, won a Parents’ Choice award for his CD of children’s music, and was a finalist in the Cape Fear Blues Competition.
With a voice that some have compared to Tom Waits and Dr. John, Vince Junior has some pretty impressive guitar skills. “I’ve always played with my fingers, and with a Stratocaster through a tube amp, that can get a pretty sweet sound,” says Junior. “And with this new band, I’m working on bringing in some of that Steve Cropper, Cornell Dupree, and James Burton styles.”
