Vince has been playing guitar for over 25 years. Credits include recording with Michael Jackson, touring with Tiffany, world travel playing with various artists and many years of perfoming in Southern California.
The field of guitar-based instrumental fusion albums is getting pretty interesting a third into 2003 and high on the list of outstanding new artists is California-based Vince Mendoza, who released his debut CD Highway 154. Performing all the guitars, synths and keyboards- Mendoza is ably assisted by Frank Reina (drums) and Brad Cummings (bass). It's amazing how expressive an electric guitar can sound in Mendoza's hands and his compositional edge puts the album over the top. Masterful at combining the right guitar tone and melodic approach, Mendoza doesn't bowl you over, instead he adroitly lures you ine with a sound that's somewhere between jan Hammer's made for TV soundtrack sound and a full-bodied guitar tone somewhere between Jan Akkerman and Steve Morse. Excellent stuff.
