Get the new year started on the good foot, with the band that "makes music fun again", The V-Tones of Charleston! We'll be playing at the Ballroom Dance Club (1632 Ashley Hall Rd.) on Sunday, January 6th, 2013. Yes 2013--Wow! The price of admission includes a dance lesson by the Roaring Twenties Hot Jazz Dance Club's Stephen Duane, and the lesson is at 6:30pm. Then, the V-Tones play from 7:30-9:30pm. It's so early that even Eden might be there! Let the bells ring out! Total price is $10. You'll be glad you came!
Mele Kalikimaka, y'all! You'll want to catch the V-Tones at the Blind Tiger, downtown Charleston on friday, Dec. 28th. We'll have a great group of musicians with us--Roger Bellow, Robert Widlowski, and Matt Lohan (if he's back from tour). I love playing this new hybrid music with these guys---early Jazz and Western Swing standards on bluegrass instruments, plus Tropical Swing and Gypsy Jazz on the ukulele. What do you call it? Uke Jazz? Lowcountry Swing? Whatever it is, it's lots of fun. We'll go on a little later than our usual "nerdy and early" time slot. That's Friday, Dec. 28th at the Blind Tiger. Don't Miss it!
Hey folks, there's no need for alarm--I've been through a half dozen Apocalypses, and everything worked out alright. The world ain't coming to an end, my friend, the world's coming to a start! And what better way to celebrate than with a Swing Dance feted by the good folks at The Roaring Twenties Hot Jazz Dance Club! They've hired the V-Tones to be the band at their shindig on Friday, December 21st. It'll be held at the Hungry Monks Music School (1948 Belgrade), here in Charleston, SC. You can learn our native dances by attending the lessons (advanced at 7:15pm, beginner's at 8pm), or by jumping into the festive, holiday fray with the band at 9pm. We've got Roger Bellow and Robert Widlowski on board, so it's going to be fantastic. Don't miss it! All this for just $10!
Let us part the hoary mists of time and peer into the pages of history...not so far back! Just eight years ago The V-Tones of Charleston played our first ever Holiday Extravaganza at the Public Library, dowtown at the Main Branch auditorium. Each year we've tried to put on a different show, even to the details of the set list! This year we're hoisting a somewhat more modest show than last year, though it will still be amazing and memorable. We do have a tap dance troupe joining us, plus the talented Josh Kaler on the steel guitar. It's free, it's on Sunday, December 9th, it's at 3pm, it lasts about an hour, and y'all should come! This is a show for all ages!
