Vincent discovered Blues and Soul music as a child. While still in grammar school, he formed a trio called Michael Vincent and Doubleshot with two of his classmates. The band performed frequent local gigs and house parties and quickly becoming a local favorite. Now slightly grown up and traveling the country, he employs a reminiscent blues guitar style and an inspiring voice.

Dan Hewitt started playing drums in the summer of 2006. He moved to New Hampshire and met Michael Vincent in grammar school and they soon collaborated with Dan Mack to form the trio. Now an experienced percussionist, he has returned as the backbone. His main influences include Gene Krupa, Mitch Mitchell, John Bonham, Ginger Baker, Buddy Rich, Louie Bellson, and Steve Gadd.
Admission is $12, doors open at 1:30 p.m. for the BYOP venue.
