Bassist, guitarist, and multi-instrumental vocalist Jos Vicars radiates the same salty, organic qualities on stage as he did growing up in the muddy waters of the Lowcountry. He got a taste for music at the age of 8, when he began playing trumpet at his family church in Murrells Inlet, South Carolina. His musical endeavors have covered the whole gamut, including jam bands, bluegrass, funk, reggae, rock, country and metal and has taken him from local Eastern destinations from New York City to Key West, Fla; to various hot spots around the world including Barcelona, Amsterdam, Oslo, Copenhagen, Australia,The Virgin Islands, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic; to name but a few. A devoted bassist/guitarist, vocalist and songwriter, Jos performs year-round on Hilton Head Island for thousands of tourists and locals who admire his gritty style and barefoot performances..
When off stage, Vicars’s coastal roots draw him to kitesurfing, sailing, free diving, backpacking, and composing on his sailboat.
