About Vince Thompson:
Vince Thompson and the Next Fun Thing is Connecticut's answer to Bob Wills with the best talent playing a vintage western swing sound punctuated by originals. "Thompson's "Hurricane" is a thoughtful, literate and melodic work that conjures what might happen if James Taylor raised B.W. Stevenson from the grave and they hotwired Vince Gill's tour bus for an all-night ride to Nashville." - Rick Koster New London Day
