LACONIA — Pitman's Freight Room has booked the "Home Grown" Michael Vincent Band to perform on Friday December 20.
The Michael Vincent Band is made up of three very talented, driven young musicians that are devoted to the music that they play. They grew up together in central New Hampshire where they learned about the blues and the roots of American music on their own with long hours of practice and experimentation. Artists such as the Cream, The Grateful Dead, the Allman Brothers Band, the Jimi Hendrix Experience, Muddy Waters, B.B. King, The Band, Booker T. & the MG's, and Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble are among the band's favorite influences, and you can hear it in their original music as well as their cover tunes.
They have more experience performing together than most musicians in their twenties, playing their first paying gig together during Weirs Beach Motorcycle Rally when they were only thirteen years old. A few years later they would play with some of their heros, Eric Burdon of the Animals and Jack Bruce of Cream, when they were only 17 years old (Gilford, NH 2008). Since then, they have performed with legends such as Johnny Winter, Dave Mason of Traffic, Elvin Bishop of The Butterfield Blues Band, Ronnie Baker Brooks, Biscuit Miller and The Mix, The Holmes Brothers, Dave Malone of the Radiators, Shirley Lewis, and John Lee Hooker Jr.
Now based out of Gulfport Mississippi, they have taken on a new understanding for the blues and southern music. Their new studio disc "Puttin' The Word In The Streets" was produced by Michael Vincent and Danny Mack and features over 6 new original tracks including the hit single "Trailer Park Boogie." They have been traveling the road and playing in clubs from Austin to Chicago and from Bangor to Key West. In the past few years, they have tripled their fan base and had terrific results with merchandise and album sales.
