'She Goes, He Goes' Swing Dance

Listen up! In 'She Goes, He Goes' I play the tenor banjo (mostly). We'll be playing on Saturday, the 29th at DanceFX,  the new dance studio on the corner of Huger and Rutledge. Ususally bands start up around 9pm, with a beginners' lesson at 8pm, and advanced lesson at 7:15pm. Dress to impress and be ready to swing uptown! The admission is $10, and that includes lessons. The good people of the Roaring Twenties Hot Jazz Club put it together.  Check it out! Dancing is a great way to exercise, to meet people and to enjoy music. I'd love to see everybody there!

The Return of Pirate Noodle!

Ahoy there, mateys! If ye be out and treading the waters of Mt. Pleasant on Friday, September 21st, seek me out and listen to the tunes of yesteryear at the Charles Pinkney Historical Site. It's Constituiton Week, which means scores of schoolchildren teem over the landscape and investigate the Colonial actors that work hard to make history alive and keep learning fun.  They ususally have basket weavers and indigo demonstrations and African drumming and Cricket and storytelling. I'll be there from 10-2pm, and it's free!  Did ye know that several of the songs you still hear today are from the 1700s and even earlier? This is a great event for all ye homeschoolers out there, too. Jump aboard!

Farmer's Market Concert

V for Vegetables! V for V-Tones! Step on up folks and catch the most enchanting li'l band in music history! Yes, it's the V-Tones of Charleston and they'll be playing, LIVE!, at the North Charleston Farmer's Market. That's Charleston, sir, not Charlatan...The show is on Thursday, September the sixth, from 4-6pm--early hours, yes I know, but so much is unique about this band. Plus, Ladies and Gentlemen, the 'Tones will be welcoming to the stage Mr. Josh Kaler, playing the steel guitar. Folks, this show is all free, and people of every age and backbone will appreciate this music! Jazz, Jugband, Tropical show tunes and Western Swing--it's all here--the entire musical heritage of our United States! Why, you'd be a fool to miss out on this caliber of performance! Make it your priority to attend this rare appearance by the venerable and vivacious V-Tones!!!
