Island Stylin' With Bruddah Vince

Based in Pico Rivera CA

Aloha! I am Bruddah Vince. Originally from O'ahu, Hawaii (Born in Waikiki), I've been living in Southern California for over 20 years and have been playing music for over 30 years. I've previously played in a band and love the Solo performer experience. Playing Island music & Hawaiian music on my guitar & ukulele takes me back to the Islands with every performance.

For your event, I'll introduce myself to your audience, encourage requests and customize your event by making any necessary announcements and other relevant information in order to promote guest delight. People have shared with me that "I bring the Islands to them". I feel that performing music is my calling.

I'd love to make your event a memorable one. For cozy settings, I can sing and play unplugged. For a room setting, I can plug into my guitar amp. For larger gatherings up to 100 people, I can provide a P.A. system. My goal is to have you sit back, relax and forget about your worries while the music soothes your soul!

Wonderful addition to any event

He played at our company Christmas party, absolutely loved by everyone. Very low maintenance as well, I could run around and set up and he was ready to go with no hassle.

Transport your audience to the islands

Bruddah Vince is a humble individual whose musical talent brings a touch of paradise to our Hawaiian restaurant! His chill melodies transport diners to the islands, creating an unforgettable dining experience. We've had the pleasure of hosting Vince regularly, and his harmonious tunes never fail to enhance the ambiance. If you want a taste of aloha through exceptional music, Vince is the one you've been looking for—a true gem for any venue or party seeking to elevate its atmosphere with authentic island vibes.


Review by Nathan D.W. • Funeral / Memorial Service • November 27, 2023 • Lake Forest, CA

Five star rating for Ukulele player Bruddah Vince. Bruddah played at my mother's memorial service the other day and he was absolutely superb. Besides arriving an hour before the start, he was willing to make some additions to songs to play the night before. But most importantly, the playing was superb, clear, and with his amplifier equipment was highly professional. His playing and singing of the Over the Rainbow / What a Wonderful World medley along with others such as Beautiful Kauai, Aloha 'Oe and other traditional Hawaiian songs was top notch. I cannot recommend anyone more highly as Bruddah to play at an event!

Very professional and a great singer
Working with Bruddah Vince was easy and he was well prepared with all the correct equipment. He plays all the best Hawaiian tunes and more.


Review by Veronica C. • Rehearsal Diner • November 10, 2023 • Anaheim, CA

Bruddah Vince was beyond amazing for our rehearsal dinner! His performance was nothing short of exceptional. He played the ukulele and guitar for our Hawaiian themed dinner. It was truly the cherry on top to our magical night! The atmosphere remained positive and energetic throughout the entire night. He kept the music going non-stop throughout the night and had people singing along. We would definitely recommend Bruddah Vince to all our family & friends!

Vince is a consummate professional!


Review by Madeleine C. • Retirement Party • November 2, 2023 • Beverly Hills, CA

Bruddah Vince is a dream! I contacted Bruddah Vince just a few days before our retirement party at a large estate in Beverly Hills, when another performer I had originally hired dropped out at the last minute. What could have been a disaster turned out to be a blessing, as Bruddah Vince was extremely easy, professional, and pleasant to work with, and he provided the perfect vibes we were seeking. His dreamy voice, expert ukulele playing, and great song selection added so much beauty to our night. We all felt transported to the islands for a few hours, and the party would not have been the same without him. He was very agreeable to every request, including taking a Covid test upon arrival, which we really appreciated since some of our guests are high risk.


Review by John L. • Celebration Of Life • October 28, 2023 • Whittier, CA

Vince is the best! I can't recommend Vince enough. I hired Vince to celebrate my 13 year old daughters life. Everybody was highly impressed by Vince. If you are looking for a traditional Hawaiian ukulele or guitar player for your next event, don't hesitate in booking Vince. A1 *****


Review by Amanda M. • Birthday Party • October 14, 2023 • San Diego, CA

Bruddah Vince created the ambience for the party! He was accommodating as he moved from one area to the next (following the crowd and re setting up his equipment). Everyone loved him!


Review by Todd G. • Birthday Party • October 7, 2023 • Encino, CA

Review by Maile F. • Maui Fundraiser • September 30, 2023 • Los Angeles, CA

Bruddah Vince is a talented musician that brought the Hawaiian islands to our event with his delightful presentation. His punctuality and friendliness brought a sense of ease to our event that meshed well with our relaxed ALOHA atmosphere. Our guests (many of them from Hawai’i) throughly enjoyed his sounds, his voice and his music selections. It was a truly a memorable and entertaining experience.


Review By Mitch C. • South Bay Island Fair • September 30, 2023 • Redondo Beach, CA

Fantastic entertainer! Vince was great at keeping the music going and engaging with the audience. Even played with a battery powered amp when the electricity unexpectedly went out!


Review by Kimberly S. • Graduation • September 29, 2023 • San Diego, CA

We hired Bruddah Vince for a backyard luau graduation celebration. He was very professional, easy to communicate with, and his music/voice/talent was above and beyond what we expected. All of our guests were really impressed and made several comments about how good he sounded. He started earlier than expected and played longer than expected. Very, very happy with his performance. Thank you Bruddah Vince!!


Review by Cami W. •  Celebration • September 21, 2023 • Manhattan Beach, CA

Review by Javis F. • Luau Party • September 16, 2023 • Torrance, CA

"VInce was super talented and amazing! He sang for our daughter's first luau and put on a great show. He showed up an hour early to set up, and made our announcements in between his set. Not only was he a great MC for our event, but he was able to accommodate our other hired performers by playing their tracks as they danced. Vince was easy to work with and communicated clearly in his email and calls. We will definitely be using his service again! Mahalo!"   


Review by Kai T. • Restaurant Event • September 9, 2023 • Torrance, CA

"A big mahalo to Bruddah Vince for performing at our restaurant on a busy Saturday. Not only does he have a large repertoire of songs and a soothing voice that everyone appreciates and enjoys, he has the true aloha spirit. No matter how many people recognize him, he doesn’t act like a big shot and remains approachable to all which is key for us. Can’t wait to have him perform for us again! Mahalo plenty! "
