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.

The Evening Muse is located at 3227 N. Davidson Street in historic North Charlotte. The show begins at 9:00pm and tickets are free. For more information and call The Evening Muse at 704-376-3737 and for additional information on Vinx, log on to the website below.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
