Vinx and Lee Payne

“VINX is the gift you give to someone you really care about” – Stevie Wonder

Hands Mouth & Feet is the dialogue between two cutting edge artists: acclaimed improvisational vocalist and percussionist, Vinx de’Jon Parrette and superb tap dancer, Lee Payne.  Using live looping to create funky bass lines, grooving beats and intricate melodies, Vinx’s incomparable skills are matched by Lee’s boundless athleticism and musicality.

Vinx’s credits include Stevie Wonder, Sting, Herbie Hancock, Cassandra Wilson and Tom Jones.  Lee toured the globe as a principal dancer in Riverdance, Magic of The Dance and Singing in the Rain and was featured on the hit TV show Got To Dance.  

A jaw-dropping, toe-tapping, unmissable, feel good show!
