Paul Vincentt has the sweetest country voice in New York City....

A review of the Feb 27th 2010 Metropolitan Room appearance from:
The Seat Next to the Critic
Paul Vincentt, a promising new talent on New York's cabaret scene, was enthusiastically received in his Metropolitan Room debut. Accompanied on piano by his musical director, Mike Murray, and on flute and percussion by Jonathan Royce, Vincentt opened his set with Marc Shaiman and Ramsey Mclean's A Wink and a Smile - and during the next hour there were many winks and an abundance of smiles.
Vincentt refers to himself as "a small-town country boy from the middle of nowhere finding his way in the big city" and his musical repertoire reflects his journey. While in New Orleans he was introduced to the music of Thomas Fats Waller, and Vincentt has great fun with a medley of Waller's Keepin' Out of Mischief Now and Ain't Misbehavin'. We learn of early musical mentors in Vincentt's journey to the big city, and his tribute to Louis Armstrong with the Kalmer, Ruby, Hammerstein II's A Kiss to Build a Dream On is a beautiful rendition so well suited to Vincentt 's voice.
Vincentt returns to Waller with an amusing rendition of Find Out What They Like (and how they like it) with vocal accompaniment by Mike Murray. A highlight of the evening was Frank Loeser's I Wish That I Were Twins, a duet with Murray. The closing number, Sara Lee, by Kander and Ebb brought down the house.
From New Orleans to Broadway, from Dylan to Rodgers and Hart, Paul Vincentt delighted those at his Metropolitan Room debut with a diverse program of love songs ballads and novelty numbers. His CD To Make You Feel My Love is available at www.paulvincentt.com.

When New York cabaret crooner Paul Vincentt escapes the hustle and bustle of The Big Apple, he loves cruising the high seas. His latest cruise was on Holland America's Maasdam, a floating palace with five-star dining and five-star entertainment. This itinerary whisked him off to a kaleidoscope of colorful isles, including Curacao, Grenada, Virgin Islands, St. Lucia and Barbados, where he spent relaxing hours painting watercolor scenes of the islands and their flora. While painting from a palette of pastels and azure blues, Vincentt carries romantic tunes with him wherever he roams - the jovial bass singer is a hard-working Manhattan chanteur.
After a long and arduous Christmas season performing holiday shows and benefits, a cruise is just the ticket to kick back and recharge. Christmas is a busy season for Vincentt every year; in addition to corporate events performing as a singing Santa Claus, he stars in "Claus With a Cause," an annual benefit for COPWA (Children of Parents With AIDS) at Sardi's. Vincentt's impressive New York career has led him to the stages of The Metropolitan Room, Don't Tell Mama, Uncle Charlie's, and supper clubs like La Revista and L'Ybane. But while on the Maasdam, he enjoys taking in soothing concerts by the Adagio Strings, a talented quartet performing a repertoire ranging from the classics to Broadway (which are among Vincentt's favorites).
Diverse and lively, Vincentt stars at the Metropolitan Room in A Night of Fats Waller, A Different Shade of Blue, Explore Your Inner Cowboy, The Warm and Fuzzy Show, Twice Upon a Time and Personal Divas. Prior to his six years in Manhattan, he performed in romantic beach clubs of St. Petersburg, Ray Stevens' Dinner Theatre and with Branson's Foggy River Boys. In New Orleans, he headlined at Hotel du Maine, The Corner Pocket, Preservation Hall, Golden Lantern, Phoenix and Storyville.
His latest CD, To Make You Feel My Love has a host of Valentine flavored tunes to transform any evening into a night of romance. Selections include To Make You Feel My Love, Until the Real Thing Comes Along, and Have I Told You Lately.
Holland America Cruises provide world-class, talented performers; they are, as many would say, the entertainer's entertainers. Just ask Paul Vincentt!
