MICHAEL VINCENT BAND
Sharing Their New Hampshire/Mississippi Blues to The World
Michael formed the band with classmates Dan Mack and Dan Hewitt while they were attending Gilford High School in New Hampshire. As with so many young bands, they honed their skills by playing along with the records of contemporary blues musicians like Stevie Ray Vaughan. “It made me who I am now,” Vincent has said.
After graduating in 2009, Vincent told his parents he was taking the band to Memphis, but instead ended up in Gulfport, Mississippi, where they became immersed in the delta sound and learned to appreciate the older blues legends.
The band began to incorporate some of those styles into their own performances impressing veteran bluesman
Wayne Sharp, whose original Sharpshooters Band from 1980 included
“Jaimo” Johnson and Lamar Williams, both of whom went on to play with The Allman Brothers Band.
The band self recorded and released two albums which are no longer available.
Double Shot in 2012 and then Putting The Word In The Streets in 2013.
The EP Mama's Rockin' was released in 2018 and the band is making plans to go into the studio with
9-time Grammy nominee Ron Levy (Wild Kingdom, BB King, Albert King, Roomful of Blues)
as producer and on Hammond B3.
WHAT THEY HAVE SAID
WAYNE SHARP - Keyboardist For Michael Burks
These guys do more blues than many of those in the blues profession.
They are so focused on the real music, and they’re carrying it on...
GULF PORT MAIN STREET - Laurie J Toups - Director
We love working with the Michael Vincent Band! They bring it all to every performance and
they don’t disappoint! We can't wait to have them back for our 10th Annual View The Cruise, on the big stage!
BLUES FOR VETERANS ASSOCIATION - Bill Murray, Music Coordinator
In 2018 I booked M.V.B. To perform at our annual festival. Our staff and patrons raved.
They sound much bigger than a trio...
