He is far beyond his years in talent and has the stage presence of the rock n roll icons of the 70’s and 80’s. He has played in front of sold-out crowds at Madison Square Garden and the T-Mobile Arena.
Vin Adinolfi, a.k.a. Vin A, was born in NYC in 1988. His father, Vin Adinolfi Jr., was a record executive/producer for Lifesong Records for over 30 years and produced many notable artists such as Jim Croce, The Partridge Family and Dion, to name a few. The label’s bosses came in one day and said they had been bought out by Sony, so his father was out of work and had nowhere to turn.
Why does Vin A’s story start here you ask? Since the age of seven, Vin had been learning to play piano and guitar by ear. When his father lost his job, Vin, who was 14 years old, was asked by him to start a band with his younger brother, Nick (who started playing drums at age six). The band would be a retrospective of his father’s career and they would perform songs his dad had either produced, sung back up on, or worked on over the years.
The band they formed would forever be known as “The Bronx Wanderers.”

This extraordinary musician plays a slew of instruments, including guitar, piano, drums, bass, banjo, violin and even the three and four string cigar box slide guitar. By the way, he mastered all these instruments with no formal teaching whatsoever. He is totally self-taught.
Any musician would be happy with such accomplishments thus far and Vin is very proud of his success, but he constantly wants new and exciting ways to challenge himself and widen his audience. This Stockton University honors graduate has come a long way in the music industry. He has sung the National Anthem at Madison Square in front of a sold out New York Rangers game and opened up for Bon Jovi on front of 18,000 screaming fans in his hometown of Las Vegas at the T-Mobile Arena.
“This is the most turbulent time I have ever experienced, both professionally and personally,” he said. “But in troubled times can come great growth, creativity, and art. I’m going to keep my head down, and make people happy, doing what I love.”
Something else he is passionate about and that is giving back. His charity work here in Southern Nevada is non-stop. He is one of the most sought after Vegas headliners by charities for two big reasons. First, he is a huge celebrity that attracts many followers to an event. Second, he never says no to a good cause. Even with his enormously busy schedule, he lends his time to so many in need such as St. Jude’s Ranch For Children, the Win-Win Foundation, and multiple veterans associations.
No stranger to wearing many hats, Vin is not just a respected and admired musician and performer, he is also an accomplished composer and producer. He is releasing two albums in 2020, “Mountains Of Ignorance,” in which two singles have already been released — “Know Where” and “Mantra” — and can be found on all streaming applications.
The other album, “VINdemic” is an acoustic solo album in which Vin plays every instrument and is being made during quarantine which feature covers such as “Landslide” and “Yesterday.” He’s set to release a new music video for his upcoming single “Wishing Well” which will feature several stars of Strip smash shows “X Country” and “Aussie Heat.”

Vin is known as one of the best guitarists working today. His range as a vocalist that can sing a Dion song as well as Queen and even Bruno Mars makes him a rare talent.
