Kevin Turner, aka Grinning Cat, has established himself as a champion of funky music from around the world. His DJ sets are a collection of happy memories, places travelled, positive vibes and a touch of flamboyance.
The English born DJ moved to Tasmania from his hometown of Bristol in 2009 with a record collection three decades in the making. With gigs at Junction Arts Festival, Fresh, Saint Johns, vineyards, galleries, tractor sheds, restaurants and paddocks, Grinning Cat has been able to share his happy-go-lucky mix of soul, boogie, reggae, house, jazz and disco.
The story of Vinyl in the Vines is a simple one; a love of music, wine and the island state of Tasmania.
First and foremost Vinyl in the Vines is a family event, the grownups get to enjoy top DJs, world-class wines and something a bit different to normal. Kids get some space to run around, meet new friends and have a boogie.
