Vic has been an accomplished musician since childhood. Born in Muskegon, Michigan to a musical family his father played sax and guitar and was the leader of one of the most popular big bands in the midwest in the 40's and 50's. His mother was an accomplished pianist who insisted all four children start their musical lives on the piano. Vic would watch his fathers band practice and from the age of four would tell his mother that the instrument he wanted to play was the trombone. After five years of piano lessons he got his first trombone at the age of nine. Three years later, while in the seventh grade, he was fronting his own band playing for junior high school dances and he knew from then on what his life's work would be. Vic continued leading bands through his high school years and while attending college. He then spent two years as a featured soloist with the 399th Army Band. After receiving an honorable discharge Vic spent the next five years as owner of BIRD'S MUSIC CENTER in Muskegon, Michigan running the store during the day while performing with his own trio at night. After selling his music store Vic moved to Miami, Florida where he worked with virtually every major "Star" in the entertainment business. After four years in Miami Vic relocated to Orlando, Florida where he currently resides.  For three years Vic was featured with a show band at Walt Disney World before leaving to form his own very successful musical entertainment company providing bands and backup musicians for clients all over the U.S. Vic's music credentials run the gamut from big bands, recording and broadway shows to jazz, dixieland or fronting a band of any size and he continues to enjoy success as one of the busiest trombonists in Florida and the southeast.
