Vinnie is beyond talented and helped make our wedding day special by performing a diverse range of songs that our guests truly appreciated! We can't say enough about the unique ambience Vinnie created around him and how much everyone who attended our wedding events continues to talk about him as one of the absolute highlights. He can play everything you can imagine or request, adding such unique flare to so many songs to make them each a memorable experience and he even learned several songs especially meaningful to my wife and me (I Will Wait by Mumford and Sons among others) that enhanced moments for us in the perfect way! We'd recommend Vinnie to anyone for any occasion and can't thank him enough!

Wow - you are a fantastic musician! I just wanted to let you know how happy we were with the music you provided for Kali's wedding and cocktail hour. It was exactly what she wanted! I so appreciated your flexibility and your willingness to meet our special requests. So many people at the wedding and reception commented on your music. They thought you were great! They asked about our connection with you, thinking you were a family friend. When I explained that I had "randomly" found you on the internet, they were so surprised. We definitely picked the right person. You helped make the ceremony so unique - Adam Sandler's "I Wanna Grow Old with You" and all! - Nancy (MOB) - Eden Prairie, MN

Vinnie performed at our wedding on July 7th and he was everything we were hoping for and more! If you are pondering hiring him for your event, do not hesitate. Vinnie is an outstanding performer and will do a fabulous job at your event. He is not only easy going, but also accommodates all of your musical needs and requests.

I just want to say that you did a wonderful job singing Broken Road and the other songs as well. Just wish we had more time and songs with really are talented! Thank you again for being part of our memories. Your performance was everything that we could have hoped and wished for on our wedding day. The songs that you preformed were exactly what we wanted. It was also appreciated you being able to make suggestions for a couple of the songs during the ceremony. Thanks again for making our day so memorable.

Chad and Polly, Cadott, WI

VInnie Rose is freakin' AMAZING!! VinnieRose played 7 hours at our wedding; during the ceremony, social hour, dinner, & reception. He was extremely easy to book, very kind & accommodating. I want to thank him so much for everything he did to make our wedding so special. Vinnie Rose's music during the social hour & reception was perfect and so many people commented about the lovely, relaxed atmosphere he created. Vinnie Rose has an amazing voice and talent that comes across in every song. VinnieRose got everyone up and dancing and I never wanted the evening to end. Special thank you for learning 'Perfect' for our first dance. VinnieRose is brilliant and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone in the future.

- Dan & Kayla Kreuser

Your performance created quite exactly the ambiance we had hoped for. Everyone enjoyed your music.

Faye - Richfield, MN

Vinnie played our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour and did an excellant job. We requested a specific song for our processional which he learned in just a few days and played beautifully. The rest of the music was bascially left up to him and everything was perfect. We've had numerous compliements on him and I would absolutely hire him again. He definitely helped to make our wedding day a wonderful memory. Thanks again!!

Beth and Eric - Golden Valley, MN

I just wanted you to know you totally killed it on Saturday. Everyone was blown away by how awesome you were. It was fantastic!!! Thank you so much! I hope you had a blast too!

Whitney, Minnetrista, MN

Just a quick note to let you know how much we appreciate you playing/singing at our wedding. Your music exceeded our expectations and everything was incredible. Many of our guests commented on how great the ceremony and cocktail hour music from you was.Thank you again for helping make our wedding day a success.

Chad and Michelle, Eden Prairie, MN

Vinnie Rose was the perfect addition to our wedding day. We used him for our ceremony and cocktail which were both outdoors. It was a great decision to use someone with the experience and professionalism that Vinnie has. Our wedding was a little less formal and structured but through his music and cues, the ceremony and cocktail our went off without a hitch. We will forever remember when the bride walked down the isle to "Die a Happy Man" by Thomas Rhett and danced our first song "Head over Boats" by Jon Pardi which Vinnie specifically learned both of the songs for our wedding. It definitely made our day special to us and memorable for a life time.

David and Rachel - Plymouth, MN

From his huge music library to his unequivocal talent, Vinnie is a true artist. I threw some random songs at him and he learned them in time for the wedding. I don't know if I was more teary eyed walking down the aisle because of the emotion of the day, or because of his beautiful rendition of "First Day of My Life." Music was an important component of my wedding and I could not have booked a better guy. Same goes for his band during the reception. Every time I looked up, people were having a blast on the dance floor. My only regret is not spending enough time enjoying the music.

Lena and Jason - Rochester, MN

Everyone was so impressed with the Vinnie Rose Trio at our wedding! It seemed like every guest we spoke with wanted to know who the musicians were, where we found them, and at which place they'd next be performing, so as to hear them again. Vinnie was great to work with while planning the wedding, too, despite many difficulties caused by our venue's restrictive rules regarding performers. Throughout the process, Vinnie was always patient, helpful, and eager to work hard in order to make sure our wedding music was perfect. Even though our venue was extremely apprehensive about having live music due to the area's draconian noise ordinances, Vinnie and the Trio were able to play at the perfect volume, and the venue's coordinator even asked Vinnie if she could recommend him to the venue's future wedding clients! Overall, the music was exactly what we wanted: professional-quality live music at a volume perfect for dancing, but not so overbearing that guests are unable to socialize. Thanks, Vinnie.

Preston and Laura Dholsgraf.- MLPS, MN

Thank you again for being a part of our day! The music was beautiful and exactly what I had hoped for!

David and Rheanna

I wanted to thank you for your wonderful performance at my Mother's memorial service. I received so many compliments on your music and the special touch that it brought to the day. The classical music at the visitation, performance of You've Got a Friend at the service and an amazing job of finding that fine line of classical and vocals at the reception brought the experience to a whole different level. I had many family and friends asking where we found you and I have passed your name around several times. I also appreciated your level of professionalism, sensitivity and independence in setting up. Great job!

Rachel, Richfield, MN

"Thank you so much for being a part of our wedding day!! We knew the first time we met you and heard you sing that we wanted you to be a part of our special day. Thanks for learning the songs we requested for our ceremony. It was perfect! We have heard and continue to hear so many compliments from our guests about your performance. We look forward to hearing you again at my office holiday party in December! Thanks again for sharing your talent with us!"

Julie & Eric - Bloomington, MN

"Vinnie performed our ceremony music as well as our cocktail hour for our wedding on 3/21/15 and he was nothing less than fabulous! He performed a special song by request for our ceremony; it was beautiful and truly a special moment for us. We had many guests approach us during our event to comment on Vinnie and his music selection. Thank you for sharing your talents with us, we could not have asked for anything more!"

Meredith and Ben Rykhus, Minneapolis MN

Vinnie was pure entertainment. EVERYONE thoroughly enjoyed him and he only took one break. He was an absolute delight! He took requests - total customer involvement.

Dancing Dragonfly Winery - St Croix Falls

I wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed, as well as the guests, your music at the ceremony. I'm still receiving complements as to your choices, volume, interaction with the crowd...really everything. Thank you so much and great job!

Heidi and Treff - Centerville, MN

Thank you so much for adding so much to our wedding day! We keep hearing over and over how wonderful you were. Having great music on our wedding day was so important to us. Thank you for making that happen! I know your talents will take you far!

Molly and Jim – MLPS, MN

Thank you so much for doing our wedding ceremony and reception music for our wedding The ceremony was beautiful, and I am so happy you were able to learn and play the Tyrone Wells song for it! I also heard that everyone loved your reception songs too – thank you for helping make our day so special!

Alicia and Justin, MN

Vinnie was awesome, got rave reviews from all my guests, and I would easily hire him again. He is an extremely talented guitar player and has a superb singing voice with incredible range. I would not have believed anyone could do an acoustic version of some of the classic rock songs he did until I heard him do it. I will definitely want him back. He was perfect for our party.I also wanted to mention that one of the compliments I got was that you sounded great and yet music was not so loud that you could not carry on a conversation. I've seen too-loud music clear out a party because nobody could visit and yet the music wasn't good enough to just sit and listen. I think a lot of people could have just listened to you, but they appreciated the fact that you didn't drown out any attempt at being social. It was perfect!!!

Joy and Jim, Mahtomedi, MN

Thanks so much for performing at our Music in the Park Concert! Vinnie Rose has got the talent and enjoys entertaining a crowd! Played a great mix of cover and original music during his concert here in Waconia! Was thoroughly impressed with his guitar and vocals during “Purple Rain”. You will not be disappointed by choosing Vinnie for your next party or concert!

David Wabbe, Director of Parks and Recreation - Waconia, MN

I had to tell you how absolutely wonderful you were! You were amazing! I can't even begin to guess the number of people that commented to me how great you were. Everyone was so impressed with your music and singing. You definitely made our wedding one to remember which is exactly what we wanted. Thank you so much for everything, your talent is such a gift and I'm so happy we got to share it with our family and friends.

Jodie, New Richmond, WI

"My husband, family, and myself were extraordinarily pleased with having Vinnie Rose play at our wedding reception. Vinnie was very easy to work with, had a HUGE repetoire of songs to choose from, was willing to learn some new ones, and was just simply very talented. Vinnie played solo during our cocktail hour and set the mood perfectly. Two other band members (a bassist and drummer) joined him for the reception music. Our wedding guests were a good mix of dancing and non-dancing, so having the trio play familiar tunes was a great way to both provide music for the dancers and excellent musical performance for the non-dancers. I was particularly grateful when I requested a last minute change in the final song, and Vinnie and crew were willing to perform it on the fly (and they nailed it!). Overall, we had a wonderful experience, and I highly recommend Vinnie!" - Leah and Jeff, Minneapolis MN

Leah and Jeff, Minneapolis MN

Thank you sooo much for providing such great music for both our wedding ceremony & our cocktail hour. Working with you was absolutely seamless and you have such an awesome music library! You are extremely flexible & have a “go with the flow” attitude which I really appreciated. My guests loved your music & I would HIGHLY recommend you to any bride-to-be! I feel lucky to have found you!

Molly, MLPS

Vinnie has such talent! Listening to his sample music online, we thought he was great, but we were blown away when we heard him on our wedding day. His beautiful voice was our favorite part of the ceremony. Vinnie is incredibly flexible. He didn't hesitate when we asked him to play Christmas music before the start of our ceremony and more traditional wedding songs during the ceremony. Thank you for being a part of our special day!

Brian and Arrin, St. Paul

This guy is top notch!!! A great instrumentalist and vocalist. Also a real trooper for suffering through the terribly chilly and windy weather we had to put up with. Vinnie added a real touch of class to our rustic outdoor wedding ceremony. Many a guest commented on his performance, especially the sand ceremony (his rendition of The Rose). Beautiful. I highly recommend Vinnie to anyone wanting to do it a little different. I have no doubt he can do just about any tunes you would want for your ceremony. Check out his YouTube page.

Rachel and Dan, Neilsville, WI

A note of thanks to you for the wonderful music that you provided for our wedding reception. We heard a lot of positive comments on the sweet sounds coming from your guitar. One can tell that you have spent a lot of time mastering the instrument.

The Andersons – Minneapolis

We loved working with Vinnie! He did a wonderful job performing at our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. We requested that he learn a song and he was more than willing to do so for our wedding. We would highly recommend him. He is very professional and such a pleasure to work with. Thank you Vinnie!

Michelle and Chad – Eden Prairie, MN

You were one of the highlights of the whole wedding and we received many compliments on your performance...we thank you again for sharing on our special day!

Brian and Julie - Miami, FL

Thank you so much for the amazing job you did at our wedding. We had so many compliments on the music. We loved the Beatles solo in the ceremony-everything sounded even better than we imaged! So thank you again from the bottom of my heart-it was perfect.

Noelle and Jon, Brooklyn Park, MN

We heard a lot of compliments throughout the night. We were very happy with your performance. The music during dinner was the perfect mood setter, and wasn't too loud nor too soft. Also, the transition from dinner music to the dance was very smooth and speedy. Everyone enjoyed the music very much.The father-daughter dance was exactly what Courtney imagined it to be, and it will always be remembered as one of her highlights of the day. Also, we hadn't thought about a mother-son dance before the reception, and we were very impressed how the band handled that and decided on a song and played it without any preparation. We didn't have to stress about it at all, you completely took care of it and it was lovely.I heard a lot of comments on the music played later in the night too. It was good dancing music and people were enjoying the music out on the dance floor.Thanks so much for helping make our day perfect. We would gladly recommend you!

Jordan & Courtney, River Falls, WI

Thank you so much for your last minute help for our company holiday party. The music was amazing and has been the topic of conversation since Saturday night. I look forward to working with you again.

Wellington Management Group, St. Paul, MN

Thank you again for your awesome artistry and entertainment Our guests really enjoyed themselves at our reception They all talk about how great the music was. You made our event stress free and added a touch of elegance Thank you!

Don and Jeff - Minneapolis, MN

Vinnie did an excellent job playing during our wedding ceremony and social hour. We had some untraditional wedding ceremony music and he was very receptive to our ideas and learning new songs. He plays beautifully. Music has always been an important part of my life and was an important part of our wedding, and Vinnie exceeded my expectations. I wish that I would have been able to hear every moment of every song, which is impossible when it's your wedding, but I've enjoyed re-experiencing the musical moments on our wedding DVD. Multiple wedding guests commented that he was easy to interact with and his music contributed to their enjoyment of social hour.

Maggie, Duluth, MN

“Two weeks before our wedding our musician canceled leaving us in a very stressful situation. We immediately had to scramble to find a replacement and were so relieved Vinnie was available and willing to perform at our wedding ceremony on such short notice. Vinnie is professional and extremely talented. We have heard nothing but wonderful things from our friends and family about his performance. Do not doubt hiring Vinnie for your event. He is worth it! Neal and I just wish we knew about him sooner! Thank you, Vinnie for making our day extra special. You’re awesome!”

Neal and Maria – Saint Paul

Thanks again for your contribution to make our wedding special. We received numerous complements regarding your guitar playing and vocals. It really made our day special.

Norma and Tim

I could not have asked for anything more from Vinnie Rose. He is a true talent and received tons of compliments when he played our rehearsal dinner. His extensive song list and ability to feel out a crowd make him an awesome choice for a variety of functions. I'll book him again in a heartbeat.

Reese Craven - Winston-Salem, NC

Vinnie and his band delivered on every level at our wedding. He did everything we asked and more. We had a barn wedding and wanted an Americana vibe for the music. We gave him a list of songs for inspiration that included everything from Trampled by Turtles to Bruce Springsteen, and he learned every one of them (something we certainly didn't expect!), putting together set lists that were perfect for the occasion. The musicians, including a fiddle and standup base, were all awesome, and they knew how to get our guests dancing. Their level of professionalism was extraordinary.  Vinnie also played during our ceremony and solo for a cocktail hour.  His excellent guitar playing and beautiful voice really established the mood for our day. We will never forget exiting our ceremony to his rendition of Al Green's "Let's Stay Together".  We would highly recommend The Vinnie Rose Band for any event, and if you want something on the Americana side, he can definitely deliver.

Jan and Kristen, MN

Vinnie played at my engagement party and did such a great job of reading the crowd and playing requests. Everyone really enjoyed him and not to mention he is very talented. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to heighten their party, event or wedding.

Christina – Woodbury, MN

Vinnie was super. The party he was entertaining for, the guest cannot stop talking about how much they enjoyed the music and the company of Vinnie. I will definitely be using his services in the future and will highly recommend him to anyone. Thank you.

Great Clips Corporation, Minneapolis

We cannot give you enough thanks for making our wedding ceremony so memorable. Everyone was raving about how great you sounded and the special touch your music added to the ceremony. You were a pleasure to work with and went above and beyond for us. We are very grateful that we found you! Thank you for being so wonderful!

Lindsey and Tyler, Rochester, MN

Everyone was thrilled with your performance at Angelee's graduation party yesterday. You did an amazing job selecting songs that were enjoyed by four generations that attended the party. As we told you yesterday, we kept getting positive comments throughout the evening of how much.

Jim and Angelee – Big Lake, MN

Simply superb! Vinnie Rose completely wowed our attendees with his amazing vocals. He expertly played a great variety of music to keep our group engaged and entertained, more than we could have ever imagined. Vinnie is also supremely professional to work with, making everything; from booking to the performance, incredibly easy and straightforward.

Amy Suits. Event Director @ ERE Media, Inc.

Vincent personalized our wedding by learning "our" song and playing it during the ceremony. His talents are of vast spectrum he has the ability to radiate these talents through the guests no matter what genre he composes.

Jason and Lorrie – Annandale, MN

I just wanted to say Thank You for doing such an awesome job at our wedding ceremony. I know I didn't get to hear the prelude music since I was in back waiting to make my entrance, but I know from the rest of the music that I did get to hear it was beautiful...You were so easy to work with, we really barely spoke but I knew from what I saw you play on you tube and your website, that you could play anything asked. I never had any doubts! If you ever need a reference feel free to share my email or give my number and I would be more than happy to let anyone know how great you were to work with.

The Timmermans, Detroit Lakes, MN

Vinnie was an amazing performer! We got tons of compliments on his music selection, voice, and guitar playing. He sang with my bridesmaid and everyone was stunned at their beautiful performance! He was professional, kind, and truly a huge addition to our wedding! We would not have had such an emotional and unique ceremony and happy hour without Vinnie. His services are reasonably priced and he goes the extra mile to make sure the couple (and their guests) are happy and having a good time. When we look back at our special day- we both are incredibly thankful for Vinnie and how he set the mood. We can't imagine our day without him. Vinnie made my wedding so memorable. He was amazing and one of my favorite people to work with. We still get asked about Vinnie almost daily.

Abby and John - St. Paul, MN

…Was just able to watch video of the ceremony & your acoustic renditions of our FAVORITE songs brought me straight to tears.  Sweet Child of Mine is a special song to me as I have been a Guns N Roses girls since 3rd grade and dreamed of walking down the aisle to one of their songs my whole life. Your rendition of it was just beautiful. Thank you.

Andrea and Spencer – Minnetrista, MN

We hired Vinnie to play at our non-traditional/outdoor wedding reception. He was a please to deal with, as he was quite responsive, and even willing to learn a couple of new songs at our request. Our guests were pleased to listen to his vast array of songs, and he even took requests from the crowd. Many were quite surprised at his ability to create the sound of entire band by himself. Vinnie was very professional and easy to work with. Having only seen a few YouTube videos online prior to the event, we were blown away by the performance!

Greg & Emily - La Cross, WI

Amazing! We had Vinnie play for our outdoor ceremony and reception and people couldn't stop asking who our musician was. He was great to work with before the wedding and I never had to worry about our special requests....he honored them all. we were never able to see Vinnie perform live, until our wedding (we has only seen YouTube or on his website), but he in-person he was amazing! His play list was insane....he could play insane! He could seamlessly transition from country to hiphop to 60's music. We would never hesitate to refer him! Great job Vinnie! You made our day so memorable!!

Jen and Steve - Waconia, MN

Vinnie Rose was a huge success at our Christmas Party this year! Everyone loved the variety of music they played, and said how talented the band was. They very very professional, but personable as well, which makes for a great experience! I would absolutely recommend them for any event, large or small, as they certainly know how to roll with an audience & keep everyone happy! Thanks Vinnie Rose!
