Hailing from the high plains of the west, Vance spent quite some time touring the wide open spaces as a road musician and playing at some of the most renowned clubs out west including The Grizzly Rose in Denver, The Cowboy Bar in Jacksonville Wyoming and The Wildhorse Saloon in Nashville (which technically is not out west) and also paid some dues rocking in 80's hair bands (photos on request)
Familiar with many different styles of music, Vance has played Country Music, Rock and Roll, Motown, Blues, Dance, Metal and even some Big Band Swing.
Throughout his career, Vance has had the opportunity to share the stage with a number of national acts including Bullet Boys, Warrant, Winger (before they were Winger, the band was called Blackwood Creek and played at Vances high school prom) the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Michael Martin Murphy, Gatlin Bros, and Charley Pride.
Spending some of his time outside of the clubs, Vance has performed at very diverse functions including a few Fortune 500 Corporations and for the International crowd while entertaining for the Pakistani Foreign Minister. He has also rubbed elbows with some noted celebrities such as John Elway, Michael Douglas, Catherine Zeta-Jones while entertaining at their private parties.
All horn-blowing and name dropping aside, Vance now just enjoys making music with friends and fellow band-mates while proving the adage: "old musicians never die, they are just playing at the VFW
