Raised in Hackettstown, NJ, Vince Seneri began his musical career at the age of six. His father, Peter Settineri, was an accordionist, who played professionally with his own band, and introduced the instrument to Vince. Later, his father bought a Hammond M-3 organ, and introduced that instrument to him as well. He learned the accordion, then devoted himself to the Hammond organ and piano.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
