This VSOP Houce Concert performance feautures internationally renowned recording artist and Berklee College of Music educator, Vinx with pianist and keyboardist Bob Cummings.
Vinx is as close as you'll find to a 21st century Renaissance Man. Known to music fans as a percussionist and vocalist, his music is classified by some as jazz, by some as world music and by others as soul. With a style all his own, he has been compared to the likes of Nat “King” Cole and Harry Belafonte as well as Sam Cooke, Bobbie McFerrin . Vinx is best knownopening act on Sting’s Soul Cages Tour but he has also worked with numerous other artists as varied as Stevie Wonder, Cassandra Wilson, Darius Rucker, Vance Gilbert, Taj Mahal and the Spin Doctors to name a few. No matter where or when you’ve heard him, one thing is for certain… ”Vinx is the gift you give to someone that you really care about” STEVIE WONDER
" I could hear every nuance and inflection of his baritone voice swooping and soaring through melodies that had me open mouthed, gaping in that telling combination of wonder and envy that great artists sometimes provoke. The most interesting thing about his melodies was that within a single vocal line he was able to suggest the harmonic structure of the song without an accompanying chordal instrument. This is a rare talent. He is unique. His music didn't need to be overly dressed up, it is already elegant. passion. Vinx has something to say. Let him tell you himself." ~ STING
When & Where
Musical Admiration Society of Keene
The MASK is the house concert venture of Bob Cummings and Lisa Kendall. We present intimate house concert performances with world class artists in a beautifully restored 1866 Georgian Colonial mansion in downtown Keene NH.
The MASK is dedicated to supporting independent musical artists and providing a magical experience for music lovers of every generation. Live music was meant for living rooms, and in the 19th and early 20th century, that is how it was experienced. Up close and personal, house concerts create an intimacy with the artist and the audience that is unforgettable.
Each of our concerts is a uniquely special event. Performances are followed by an artists reception where the audience can interact with the artist, enjoy fine company, food and wine, and of course also take home personally autographed CDs!
