And, Vince Vance, one of the city’s greatest artistic talents, through his new must-see music video, wants the world to know there is, and there will never be another city like New Orleans.
Interview with Vince Vance
As publisher of Bayoubuzz, I had the honored opportunity to sit down and to discuss with Vince Vance, the influences that New Orleans has had upon his life and his career.
After seeing his video, “I am New Orleans” I decided I must get the real Vince Vance on video so I could share his personality and his passion for New Orleans, with others.
Here is a short video interview revealing the much insightful and somewhat zany personality of Vince Vance.
About Vince Vance:
With the 5th Anniversary of Hurricane Katrina blowing in this week, Vince Vance, or “Mr. New Orleans-Personified” is announcing his latest music video release, “I am New Orleans”.
Vance, who has been playing music for over 39-years has New Orleans flowing through his veins. “With I am New Orleans,” Vance weaves a haunting yet compelling musical collage of sights, sounds and history of the very place that a half-decade ago, the world debated whether it should or would ever be rebuilt.
After listening to “I am New Orleans”, there is little discussion: New Orleans has survived, indeed. It is now destined to reach its full glory. And, Vince Vance, one of the city’s greatest artistic talents, through his new blockbuster of a music video, wants the world to know there is, and there will never be another New Orleans.
