Vic got his first guitar for Christmas from Sears & Roebuck when he was 13 and hasn’t put it down since. By 16 he had a Les Paul, a Marshall amp and began playing parties, bars, and night clubs. Self-taught in the beginning, he was impressed by artists like Steely Dan, Michael McDonald, Toto…and decided to attend G.I.T. (Guitar Institute of Technology) in Los Angeles (Hollyweird). That experience was a defining moment in his life and led him to play professionally up and down the West Coast, Canada, Nevada, Colorado and more. Upon returning to the East Coast, he and his wife Kathy started a band and played a local house gig before taking it on the road, working for T. Skorman Productions out of Orlando, Florida. They toured the Southeastern states for almost a decade. Eventually they returned home to the Carolinas to start a family. Vic wrote and produced an album of Contemporary Christian music that he, Kathy and son, Zach performed for youth festivals, prison ministry, etc. During that time, Vic was the go-to guitar instructor in his area as well. Over the years, he has had his own party band, Gruv Dawgs, and has played and sung for many top Carolina groups including The Entertainers, Breeze Band, Fantasy Band, and others. He enjoys a mix of Soul, Funk, Rock, Blues, Jazz Fusion and Urban Gospel. Known for his funky rhythm and bluesy lead and vocal work, he is also an Indie Artist, writing and producing his own unique brand of music for himself and others. His versatility and soulful style are his trademark and he feels right at home as a member of Smokin’ Hot.
