Hull resident Vincent E. Bregoli died unexpectedly Sunday, March 13. He was 23.
After graduating from Hull High School in 2011, Vincent furthered his education by studying audio production at The New England Institute of Art in Brookline, from which he graduated with an associate’s degree in 2015. At the time of his death, he was employed at Savant Corporation in Hyannis, specializing in home automation systems, all the while continuing his passion for singing/rapping and composing music/beats.
Many will remember Vincent's numerous performances while involved in the Hull High School Theatre Arts program. He began in sixth grade with a role as a street urchin in the musical "Scrooge," and finished strong in his final production as the lead role in "Willy Wonka." Another favorite activity included competing for the Hull High Forensics Team during his freshman and sophomore years.
Vincent worked a number of jobs in Hull through the years. He worked alongside his Dad at the family hardware store on Nantasket Avenue since about the age of 15. In addition, he cooked at the BeachFire restaurant, The Red Parrot, and rocked the deli at the A Street Tedeschi’s.
While launching his own career performing as DJ Vinny B, Vincent shared his diverse musical talents at many local venues. The C-Note was a comfortable place for him to sing at open mic nights and later to host karaoke nights. He also DJ’d events at the Sea Dog Brew Pub and The Red Parrot’s Naked Oystah Bar.
Along with his local gigs, he was honored to provide entertainment for a friend’s wedding, as well as multiple graduation and birthday parties.
His quick wit and talents will be sadly missed, yet forever remembered.
