ABOUT ME

Welcome to FRANK vs ELVIS. Frank Sinatra & Elvis Presley is a celebration of these two legendary artists. Frank & Elvis is not a tribute act just casual dress with Vincent J Rigney singing all there classic hits and more.

Vincent Joseph Rigney, born in the steel town of Corby in Northamptonshire, England.

Born into a family of working entertainers, Vincent cherishes many occasions where his grandfather, father, uncles and aunties would sing their hearts out whether it was at family gatherings or social gatherings up and down the country. He recalls “I was always encouraged as a child to get up and sing a song which was usually “Can’t help falling in love” by Elvis Presley. I remember my Dad asking me to sing it for the first time at a visit to my uncle’s house when I was 8 or 9, maybe that was my first audition! I didn’t even know I could sing but my Dad obviously thought I had a voice so I guess I just took his word for it and began singing at most of the family functions and getting these huge rounds of applause at each event. It was so much fun, what with each family member doing their party piece. I now know that this was a great training ground for me as an artist as far as building up confidence and being shown how to conduct myself on stage”.

With never having any singing lessons Vincent has always maintained his singing ability which obviously came from listening to his relatives. “Funny! When I think back today it was like no one ever really talked in the family, they just kinda, well, sang! What they had to say, it was comical at times. The men would sing songs by Sinatra, Tony Bennet, Roy Orbison, Humperdinck, Tom Jones, Neil Diamond to name a few, and the ladies would sing songs by Doris Day, Billie Jo Spears, Tammy Wynette, Dusty Springfield, Patsy Cline and many more”.

It was inevitable that in 1991 Vincent, aged 23 would go on the road himself as a solo vocalist. As soon as he passed his driving test he bought himself a load of backing tracks and a PA system. He found himself a few agents to work with and hit the club and pub circuit up and down the country. It wasn’t too long before he began performing at holiday parks, hotels and theatres in the UK and abroad and even winning a few talent contests along the way.

“I remember my first gig. Well, I was terrified. There were about 100 people just staring at me waiting for me to start and I think to be honest they were just pissed off that I’d interrupted the bingo! Anyway, turns out I did alright as apparently they didn’t clap for many singers”.Over the years Vincent would go on to perform at countless venues as a solo act and he has also worked with some very talented singers & musicians, supporting Tony Christie 2016.

The songwriting story begins when Vincent sadly lost his father to a short illness in 2005 aged only 58. Joseph Rigney accompanied Vincent to a lot of his performances over the years and was a real inspiration in many ways. This in turn led to Vincent taking some time off. In fact for a long while he didn’t sing a note and almost lost interest in the music business all together. It was in the early hours one Sunday morning in 2006, around the anniversary of his fathers passing, that he just decided to pick up his guitar, which was only ever used when he came back from gigs to wind down, and begin to write his first song called “Forever in My Life”, dedicated to his father.

Vincent is currently writing his second album for 2018 whilst on the road singing his all time favourite songs by Frank Sinatra & Elvis Presley.

We booked Vinnie to play at our School Reunion twice. He is a wonderful entertainer and the crowd loved him. If you close your eyes you would think you were listening to a recording from the actual Elvis Presley.

Made Mum's birthday party go with a swing, lovely songs from different decades, a range of ballads, songs all brilliantly performed and the party guests were singing along, toe tapping and enjoying the music and wanted to ask me and learn more about Vincent. We all had a lovely time, thank you very much. I would not hesitate to recommend for any occasion.

Just sending a special thanks for kick starting my husbands 70th birthday celebrations off with a memorable, energetic professional all round performance. So pleased we were able to book a very talented, dedicated vocalist/musician. I can only express with sincerity that you really did make our night; seeing our guests dancing and singing along with 'old time favourites'. Fabulous entertainment Vinny! It was truly an amazing atmospheric Big Birthday Bash. Cheers!

We had the pleasure of having VINCENT entertain us for our students leaving bash, what a fantastic ENTERTAINER. Singing songs through the decades and quite a lot of his own songs. We loved the poetics of his songs, so honest and natural. We will certainly book him again.

Elvis, I mean Vinny, 😉 has always been a top entertainer with great passion, belief & dedication in what he does. Having booked him on many occasions he always delivers a brilliant set and gives a 100% entertainment value. Vinny is not only a talented singer and performer, he is also a gentleman and I can’t wait to see him perform his Frank v Elvis set.
