“O’Brien has raw comedic talent….”
Vince has been performing collaboratively with the Chillies since October 2007. His background in musical arrangement and passion for vocal harmonies allows him to slip in with the girls effortlessly, and he brings a certain ‘sass’ to the show.
Vince has worked extensively with different bands in Adelaide since the age of 16 and with genres including country, swing, rock and 60’s 40’s… you can see he simply loves music! Guitar and percussion, vocals and harmonies give Vince a strong performance quality with a complete understanding of musical arrangement and sound perfection.
Vince joins the Chillies in “Hollywood… All Bust” where he performs renditions of “Sway”, “Delilah”, “You should be dancing” to name a few – coupled with his own flavour and comedy inserts!
Other shows that Vince can be a part of are: “The Chillie Files”, “The Best of The Chillies”, and he plays the very important role of Hernando in “1988 – A Chillie Odyssey”.
“The Three Chillies, an Australian cabaret act, can certainly sing. Belting out much loved numbers, they combine comedy with some genuinely impressive vocals.”

“You guys were amazing on Friday night, we had an absolute blast! We look forward to seeing you guys again real soon!”
“Congratulations ladies on a fabulous show last night at Tongue Thai'd. I had a blast, congratulations too on your sold out gigs.”
“Fantastic food, excellent show - BRAVO LADIES.”

“It was amazing! Best night I've had in ages.”
“Thanks guys for Friday night! The meals were amazing and the entertainment phenomenal. We definitely will be coming back.”
“Performing to a sellout crowd at the Queens Arms Hotel in Wright Street, in the heart of the city, these three ‘chillies’ are just electrifying. The hotel was a pleasant surprise having undergone some renovations to create a great venue for a show of this kind.”
“The Three Chillies are Oriana Binetti, Kelly O’Brien and Rose Senesi. In a flashy one-hour show, they strut their stuff together and individually in front of a seven-piece jazz band (Twisted J), working their way through many a well known Motown tune (and some lesser known numbers), accompanied by some tightly scripted banter to tie it all together.”
