Canadian crooner VINCENT WOLFE has built a strong connection with audiences that love the music and vibe of the big band, jazz, and swing eras. Unlike tribute performers, he steers clear of imitations and presents his own personal interpretation of popular favourites of the 30s and 40s, always with a touch of class and humour.
His shows also provide a fresh take on classic crooner era favourites and include Vegas-style orchestrations of pop tunes from the 60s and 70s.
