Originally from Tucson, Arizona, Arthur Vint began studying music seriously at the age of twelve and by the time he was fifteen was already performing professionally. He has performed everywhere from dive bars to Carnegie Hall traveling the world with an array of different jazz, rock, country, and orchestral groups. Arthur focused on classical percussion studies throughout high school and served as principal percussionist of the Tucson Philharmonia Youth Orchestra from 2004-2007. During this time he was also a member of the Tucson Jazz Institute and gained invaluable experience playing in big bands and small groups with his peers.

He maintains a busy performing and recording schedule with a plethora of different groups including The Candy Shop Boys, North of Amarillo, The Brain Cloud, Melaena Cadiz, Austin McCutchen, Scott Tixier, as well as gender-bending comedian Murray Hill and many more. He can also be found fronting his own groups, Arthur Vint & Associates, The Bedford Avenue Society Band and The Hot Tamale Baby Daddies.
Arthur has appeared on over 25 albums in his career as a sideman, but will be stepping out on his own with his debut release as a leader coming out January 29th, 2016 on Ropeadope Records. Arthur Vint & Associates’ debut album “Through The Badlands” evokes visions of the western American landscape and draws on the images and sounds of Vint’s childhood growing up in Tucson.
