Vinny Greco hails from the hills of West Virginia where story telling is just how folks talk to each other. He decided to move to Chicago in 2012 to be a performer, he found Do Not Submit (like all things) on Facebook and one fateful night in January 2017 he fell in love with the group that is now Andersonville DNS. It’s funny how one story at a seemingly random open mic turns into something you can’t live without.
