7th Annual Holiday Extravaganza

Ho, ho , hold on a minute, folks! On Sunday, December 11th, at 3pm, the V-Tones of Charleston will present our Seventh Annual Holiday Extravaganza! Yes, friends, it'll be at the Main Branch of your Public Library, downtown, and will last a litle over an hour. This year, we've got a huge show with the Lowcountry Strummers (local ukulele club) a real Hawaiian Hula dancer, tap dancers, sing-a-long songs of the season, a tuba player, ukulele jazz, and plenty of surprises. Kick off your holidays with this free show presented, with love, from the V-Tones. Cheers!

Hukilau Swing Dance

Hey everybody! Dance away the cloudy skies with a Hukilau Swing Dance on Friday with the V-Tones! The Roaring Twenties Hot Jazz Dance Club hosts a swing dance every Friday at Spirit Moves dance studio (across the street from Ye Olde fashioned Ice Cream on Savannah Highway). Lessons are provided before the live music starts--advance and beginners start at 7:30, then the V-Tones will get fired up at 8:30. Admission is $10, and that includes snacks, dancing, instruction (if you like) and live music. The theme, naturally, is beautiful, postcard-perfect Polynesia. We'll be doing our best to make the dream come true. Aloha!

Charleston Tibetan Society

Hey folks! Among the strangest of skills in me which have been developed along the years, somehow is the role as an auctioneer! So each year I grab a bag of dappled apples and get the patter going for the annual Tibetan Charity Auction and Fundraiser. It's always fun and the items which are donated are well worth the price. Plus, there's yummy food from Sermet's, and music by my buddies, Roger Bellow and Berita Martin (and me). You don't have to be a Buddhist to care about the Tibetans---this is not a religious service, it's a fun way to contribute to something good and to help others who are in a tough spot. The money raised goes to support our local center and our goal of creating a retreat center, but it also goes to India to help Tibetan orphans and refugees. Thanks for your support, good people, and I hope to see y'all there!

Respite Care Fundraiser Dance

On Thursday, November 10th, the Respite Care Ministries is hosting a swing dance with the V-Tones of Charleston at the Mount Pleasant Memorial Park. Tickets are $30. We'll be providing music in the Cooper River Room from 6-9pm. Now, the event is a fundraiser, so they'll have art for sale and they'll be having an benefit auction as well. The Respite Care folks do good work taking care of people with Alzheimer's, especially, and providing a program that allows family memebers and caretakers some much needed "off-duty"time. I'm happy to say that I play for the groups once and awhile and love it when they sing along or dance. We'll have the big, six piece ensemble for this show, and we hope that y'all can attend and support the program.
