Oral History Information
Vince Massimino was surrounded by music growing up as both of his parents taught music. His father was also a composer who wrote educational music. As a result, Vince played in bands (with his father in the early days) at dances and for weddings, and he estimates he has performed at over 1,000 weddings! Vince has even provided the strings for Big Al’s Hot Dance Orchestra and played backup for Ray Price. Then, in 1993, he was hired by Mississippi Music in their repair shop, where his first duty was to rehair bows. Over the years, he has developed his skills as a repair technician and enjoyed both repairing and teaching violin in the Flowood location of Mississippi Music.
