Dalai Lama's Birthday!

Greetings fellow two-leggeds! The V-Tones have been asked to provide music for a local celebration of H.H. Dalai Lama's birthday bash. We'll be celebrating on Saturday, July13th, at Gage Hall, from 6-9pm. This is a fundraiser for the local Charleston Tibetan Society, and it's $10. The food is always good!
Y'all might know that my college degree is in 'Religious Studies' (Reed College , 1989), and my focus was on Eastern Religions. It was quite a thrill to discover a little Dharma center here in the Deep South---but that's a long story best left for another time. Until then, keep on strummin'!

Flip Your Wig at the Hat Shop

Everybody needs a hat! I know that Kennedy was supposed to have stopped the hat in its tracks, but look what happened to him! Hats keep off the sun and rain. I like 'em. I'll be playing for a hat on Thursday, June 27th, from 5-7pm, with some V-Tones at the Goorin Brothers hat shop down here in Charleston. Come on by for some musique antique! Oh yes, FREE

This week's shows--Yo Burrito! Farmer's Market!

OK folks, it's time to get moving! Join the Lindyhopper's Delight at the Ballroom Dance Club on Sunday, June 16th, if you want to catch the verstatile V-Tones! This show is so mysterious, so incredible, that we dare not stir your fragile heart with the monumental murmurmings that rumble the truth behind the scenes! You can be there to dance to the magic, if you but make the effort to go to 1632 Ashley Hall rd., and give the good folks of the Roaring Twenties Hot Jazz Dance Club your $10 ($5 for BDC members and students). Lessons are included in the price of admission, and they go from 6pm til 7:30pm. Then, the baton drops and keeps going until it droops! Super surprise mystery guests! Hot pickin' and kickin'!
