Biography

The Jimi Vincent Band made a tremendous splash on the regional scene in late 2004 after winning their first Blues Challenge and heading to Memphis for the IBC. Since then, this steadily climbing, beyond high-energy act has garnered a great deal of success and shows no signs of slowing down. Jimi Vincent will be returning to Memphis in 2011 for the International Blues Challenge making their fourth visit to this competition.

Opening for national acts like Bonnie Raitt, John Lee Hooker Jr., Robert Lockwood Jr. , Robert Cray, Tinsley Ellis, Anthony Gomes, Travis Tritt, Blue Oyster Cult, and Foghat, (to name a few), being solicited by tourists destinations, having performed as a featured artist at some of the Midwest's biggest events and venues, this Ohio-based band delivers a refreshing and unique sound they call "Hard Rockin' Blues" that defies any other description. The stunning interplay of fiery guitar and Hammond B3 Organ brings people to their feet at every venue.

After independently releasing their debut CD "Been There, Done That, Won't Do That Again." and having airplay both in the US and abroad, The Jimi Vincent Band has been featured and performed at many blues festivals across the Midwest and continues to receive Internet, local, and regional airplay. This innovative band combines infectious lyrics and melodies with the energy, passion, and ambition that promise to carry them far beyond the state of Ohio and solidify them a spot in the music industry of the future.

Horseplay
In 1996, Jimi Vincent hooked up with Jack Clement, the engineer at SUN Studios in Memphis who wrote and produced many albums for Johnny Cash, Charlie Pride and U2's legendary album "Rattle and Hum". Jack invited the band to record their first album "HORSEPLAY" at his private studio in Nashville, TN. The Horseplay CD features the back-up singers and saxophone player from Reba McEntire's touring band. This Jimi Vincent CD features 9 originals and 2 great covers.

Night of the Stallion
The band released their second disc, "Night Of The Stallion" in the summer of '04. It is a live recording that includes original music as well as classic rock songs. In addition to the standard 4 musicians, this disc also features Ed Jonnet on alto and tenor saxophone.

Live At The Mohican Blues Festival
This is another live event recorded in front of thousands of blues fans in the beautiful Mohican State Forest. It was quite an electric performance as Jimi and the guys played their original material along with some Hendrix, Buffalo Springfield and other classic blues tunes.

The Z98 Session
The rock station Z98 invited the Jimi Vincent Band to perform live in their studio. The only problem was that the studio was too small for everyone to fit. The only solution was to set up in the hall and do an unplugged performance...acoustic guitar, acoustic bass and a small digital piano. There are 9 songs along with interviews of the band. The Z98 session turned out to be a lot of fun with some smoking performances.

The Sampler Disc
Jimi has put together a sampler disc with selections from all the previous CD's. It includes both acoustic and electric live sessions. There is also an extended studio recording of Bad News Woman not included on any other JVB CD, and three other songs not available on any other Jimi Vincent recording. The Sampler Disc is a good place to start if you don't know which CD to purchase.
