Get to Know Rhonda Vincent a Little
Rhonda Vincent's name and voice has come up countless times over the years with our country music. Her singing is outstandingly great.
We have listened to her fabulous work in songs with Gene Watson. We are currently playing some duets on cover songs with Daryle Singletary.
Let's give you a chance to learn a little about her. She is "The Queen of Bluegrass".
Vincent just returned from a successful International tour. She, along with the Most Award Winning Band in Bluegrass Music History, “The Rage” performed amongst the breathtaking beauty of Prague, Czech Republic and Gstaad, Switzerland.
Rhonda is from "The Show Me State". She was born in Kirksville, Missouri. She comes from a long history of a musical family.
She is a fifth generation musician who started her musical career at age five, when she sang gospel songs with her family's band. Her brother Darrin is a member of the Grammy Award-winning bluegrass group Dailey & Vincent.
Rhonda married Herb Sandker on Christmas Eve, 1983. They decided to base themselves out of Missouri instead of Nashville, to remain close to family.
For a while, Rhonda and Herb owned a popular restaurant in Kirksville, Missouri called "Bogies", with Herb managing it. They have two daughters, Sally and Tensil, who are in the music business.
Since 1987 Rhonda and the entire Vincent family have hosted a large yearly bluegrass festival on land just west of Queen City, Missouri. The Sally Mountain Bluegrass Festival is traditionally held around the 4th of July and attracts music fans from across the U.S. and the world.
