Vince Charming is a multi-talented, multi-faceted, multi-instrumentalist, who has been delighting California audiences for over thirty years. As a leader, bassist, and songwriter for the ‘Lektrik Submarine, he helped pioneer the neo-psychedelic wave that hit Berkeley in 1983. In 1985 he formed and led the Coffee Achievers whose original and high energy blend of Rock, R&B, Reggae, and Be-bop thrilled Bay Area audiences. In May of 1985 he premiered his original Rock Opera, The Artist, at U.C. Berkeley’s Wheeler Auditorium to a standing ovation. Written under the supervision of poet/author Ishmael Reed, The Artist tells of one man’s struggle to stay true to his artistic vision in the Reagan era. http://vincecharming.com/awp/
