Spring Swing Soiree on Saturday

Hey You! Catch the V-Tones on Saturday, April 2nd at the Hazel Parker Playground Community building. The good folks at the Charleston Swing Dance Association have called us in to play a show from 8:30-10:30, with a Lindyhop lesson at 6pm, and a beginners' lesson at 7. Those lessons are included in the price! There'll be a DJ to fill in before or after we play, but folks, let me tell you, there's nothing like live music to make you move! Cost: $10 for the public, and $5 for CSDA members. The Hazel Parker Playground is down on East Bay, just before the Battery. All ages and dance degrees are welcome to attend. So, put on your dancing shoes and come check out the V-Tones! It's fun-time music:)

Sunday Noodle at Cafe Medley 11am-1pm

Check out the mellow ukulele Jazz and tropical Swing scene at Cafe Medley on Sunday. Cafe Medley is on Sullivan's Island, just across the street from Poe's and the White Gallery. They've got a variety of breakfast options as well as the calvacade of caffeine drinks. It's the 'Aloha' way to start your day.
