“A MESSAGE FROM: VINNIE VINCENT
Hey guys and fabulous girls,
I’m wishing you all a very MERRY CHRISTMAS and A HAPPY NEW YEAR.
It’s hard to believe it’s been a week already since that fantastic party and I’m still flying. I want to thank everyone for coming and allowing me to shredd for you and entertain everyone. In all sincerity, I’m the happiest I’ve been in ages, thanks to you. What started as a small private birthday for friends back in august set the blueprint for me to party and shredd for my friends in one gathering. There was a finite structure in the 80’s: records, tours, magazine interviews, record companies, bands, managers, and fans.
There was also a distance between fans and the artists and bands. There’s no rules anymore. Fans and artists can connect. The game is now what you make it and into want you want it to be. By sheer accident, I’ve reinvented a way for me to bring us together in the most unusual and unconventional way. There’s no set plan to any of this, things are loose and just seem to come together out of nowhere. The best part is performing for you. The fire of the shredd is where it starts and ends and in between the party happens.
Where it goes, I won’t know until we’re actually there. But I’m having the best time ever. And from all the comments I’ve read, you’re having as much fun as I am. I get to be like I was when I was a teenager playing in the basement inviting my friends over to sit around and enjoy the vibe, music and party. Its amazing how I’ve recaptured that time. This Christmas party felt like the 80’s again, which was even more surreal. The one constant is that there’s so much on the list for the parties that we never seem to have enough days to do it all. The saying goes ‘time flies when you’re having fun’ and that we definitely are.
This is just the beginning, I can tell you because ONCE YOU GET STARTED YOU JUST CAN’T STOP!.
