Vinny Franco and the Band are an 8 piece R&B/Soul group from the Twin Cities. Their music is groovy, fun, but also passionate, and meaningful. Their live shows get people dancing, smiling, crying, laughing and falling in love.
Vinny Franco has worked closely with local Twin Cities producer JFaye to create many of his records. He takes inspiration from legendary R&B, funk, and soul artists like Al Green, Stevie Wonder, Earth Wind and Fire, Aretha Franklin, and Prince. Some of his modern inspiration comes from acts like Anderson Paak., Saint Paul and the Broken Bones, Allen Stone, and Bruno Mars.
Franco has performed at venues around the Twin Cities including Acadia, The Underground Music Cafe, The Turf Club, 7th Street Entry, and soon, The Hook and Ladder Theater. The Vinny Franco band has consistently sold 200 tickets per show.
