V-Tones at Skinful

V-Tones
Skinful Halloween
(warehouse stage)
Saturday, Oct. 27th
we play 7-8pm!
$$

Down here in the Deep South we don't have Burning Man or the Oregon Country Fair, but the closest thing I've found is Skinful Halloween! Skinful Halloween is not for the faint of heart. This long-running party has escaped from its early house-party beginnings and has become a wild, multi-staged, full throated monster! Headline acts include many DJs (from all over the US and Jamaica), plus local bands such as the Royal Tinfoil, the Specs and Whisky Diablo.  In addition there are all kinds of acrobats, firedancers, lightshows, and entertainment to be had. It's a lot of fun just checking out the creative costumes! Now the good folks at Skinful Central have told us that they and the police want to wrap up the party a little earlier this year, so...if you want to get a head start of the festivities, then by all means get your crew together and hit the scene early for a set by the V-Tones, with a special appearance by dance master Stephen Duane. Dress to impress and boogie to the best! And as always my friends: take care of yourself, take care of your friends, plan to have a good time and make it home safe!

Georgetown Wooden Boats Festival

The V-Tones are going on the road! Well, not too far, just up to Georgetown for the Wooden Boats Festival on Saturday, October 20th. We'll be playng from noon until 4pm, and you can also catch Carroll Brown and his band at the festival as well. We're looking forward to meeting some new folks! This will be fun!

Blackwater Ukulele Fest!!!

Okay ukenthusiasts! This Saturday is the day! That's Saturday, October 13th, all day at Cypress Gardens. The festival is included in the park admission (it's not extreme), but if you want to take the Beginner's Workshop at 10am, and/or the Intermediate workshop at 10:30am, it's $10 extra (per worskhop). There will also be jams, concerts by the Charleston Hotshots and the V-Tones, a Hula workshop, boat rides and an open mic, plus ukulele vendors and general hob-nobbing. It's always fun and a great time of year to check out the gardens. Come one! Come All!
  Later that night, join the V-Tones at the Roaring Twenties Hot Jazz Dance Club Swing Dance at DanceFX, that's $10, and includes dance lessons (adv. 7:15pm, beg. 8pm) followed by live music! This episode of the V-Tones will have our special guest star, Fuller Condon, from the Two Man Gentlemen Band! Whew!

V-Tones at Seanachai

Seanachai (SHAWN-a-kai) is a private Irish bar on John's Island that opens its doors to the public on Fridays. Three V-Tones will be strummin' and thumpin' on Friday, October 5th, from 8-11pm. Just go down Maybank Highway, and turn in to the lot with Normandy Farm Bakery. We'll be there. Seanachai is a real music lover's bar---not too crazy, not too loud. We'd love to see folks come on out, have a beer, support a small, local business, and enjoy the tunes.
