Biography

Vince Vance is the star and leader of Vince Vance & the Valiants, the ultimate party band, the USA’S #1 corporate attraction and a hilarious family show. He has a saying, “You can’t buy a good time, BUT you can hire me and improve your chances.” For 3 decades with his band, Vinnie performs hundreds of concerts yearly in 13 countries and 34 states making people smile, touching their hearts, and creating and re-creating memories. From the Waldorf to the White House, the super dome to the super Bowl, Bourbon Street to Broadway, Vince sparkles the world over with his magical tall hair, his band of Valiants and vivacious girls’ trio, the Valiantettes: Violet, Vixie and Velvet. No other major performer performs as many dates. Vinnie success formula:

"It’s the Rock n’ Roll music for sure. You give your audience the greatest songs ever written, throw in some of my own cool hits, add in the finest musicians playing those songs, get 3 beautiful, talented girl vocalists in cheerleader outfits grabbing people out of the crowd and bringing them on stage and top it off with a funny guy with an 18” hair-do, who does a dozen characters in an hour and a half… a guy who really knows how to get the party started, you have something totally irresistible. That is Vince Vance & the Valiants. I know. I’ve dedicated my life to it and that’s how I know it’s a winner."

Vince’s TV credits include: The “Showman” episode of “Only in America” on the Travel Channel, videos on TNT, TNN, CMT, and as a guest star singing a do-wop version of “Friends in Low Places” on the NBC Special This is Garth Brooks Too!

Vinnie, the recording artist, has released 21 singles, 11 albums and 2 bona-fide national #1s: “All I Want for Christmas is You” and “Bomb Iran,” both of which he was co-composer. Vinnie’s cartoon video, “Bomb Iraq” was an internet smash hit and was downloaded in excess of 5 million times just on one day!
