Vince has been an entertainer for nearly five decades – singing, telling stories, and playing several musical instruments.
He began performing as Santa in the early 70s when a friend asked him to entertain his child during the holidays. That turned out to be so successful that he was then hired by the Santa Cruz Parks and Recreation Department (unprecedented in the early 70s ) to play Santa for the city of Santa Cruz, visiting homes and businesses.
In those early days, his wife would spray paint his beard white to make the transformation authentic, a process he no longer needs, as his beard is now naturally as white as the snow.
Add to that his trusty, authentic, and custom-made outfit and the fantasy is complete. A fee of $50 includes a 30 minute visit to your house or establishment and a pre-call to confirm stories about the people "Santa" will visit (and what theyd like for the holiday season.)
Vince can also come as "Tropical Santa", wearing a grass skirt, Hawaiian shirt, and playing the Ukulele if desired.
He's very effective in his role as Santa. Photos are welcomed and encouraged.
Contact Vince as early as you can. The area he covers can be sometimes quite large - the earlier contact is made, the better chance you will have to get the perfect time slot for your visit!
Remember ..the sooner the better .
Santas direct phone number is (831) 429-8226.
