Beth Vinas is currently a partner at SilverTiger Production dealing with the Tribute and Cover bands within that organization. Kristina Beth Vinas began classical piano lessons from elementary school on, and continued into college. With a political science and music degree tucked under her belt, Beth went on to play as a union musician/pianist. Playing for performing arts centers, and as an on call artist, paying with musicians of every caliber brought her closer to pop, rock and showcases that were looking for a quick sight-reading keyboardist who could sing a bit too. A member of the Music Academy (Grammy) ASCAP, Union, IEBA, and now as a teacher and studio owner/member of NAMM - Beth has worked to be connected, in sync and tuned in to the music industry on several layers.
Not too long after moving from Orange County to San Diego county- The Studio at CCMA, was formed. A "home base" for musicians who were learning ( private lessons, and associated with several public schools) as well as professionals- rehearsals, networking, collaboration, facilitation and booking- where now hundreds of events annually are booked from. The Studio has compelled Beth to become a better musician, and a stronger facilitator for the talent she works with and refers or books daily. Piano has stayed her primary instrument- and as a theory major- she loves the collaboration between academic understanding- and just plain having fun.
The Studio at CCMA has become North San Diego County's "go to" place to call when a school or family needs a certified qualified teacher. It is also the "go to" place to call for a huge rehearsal space with gear, without interruption. Over 2 dozen bands/artists are part of the CCMA network, playing- booking and utilizing the Studio cache' of connections and available players to step in, audition or sub for shows. A favorite of the Tribute, Genre, and Variety Cover bands- it's been a hub for great musicians who love to work- and sound great.
Not to go forever as a administrator and teacher only- Beth can be found on stages far and near with her favorite "guilty pleasures" covers tribute band- Groove Kitty. You can catch them supporting a National Tour at venues like House of Blues or Saint Rocke- Coach House in San Juan Capistrano, or jamming at Hard Rock Hotel, Club 207.
Her heart, though is in connection, networking and collaboration with other artists. Communication is key- and GURLZ TALK RAWK is the perfect platform to connect So Cal/ San Diego Musicians and musician's from around the world with who, what, where when and why of the music industry.
