V-Tones alert! Shake out the Mu-mus, collect your coconuts and get your dancing shoes ready for a night of Tropical Swing. The V-Tones of Charleston are ready to get volcanic at the Swing Dance on Sunday, September 1st. It's put on by our friends of the Roaring Twenties Hot Jazz Dance Club, and it'll be at the site of the Charleston Ballroom Dance Club (1632 Ashley Hall Rd.) Lessons are at 6pm-Lindyhop and 6:45-Swing, then live music starts at 7:30 and goes to 9:30pm. All this for $10! Plus--snacks, AC(!), super surprise mystery guests, AND you get to learn how to dance. Wowza!
Calling all Ukulelians! This is your chance to get a free, yes FREE, ukulele workshop, hobnob with fellow ukulele enthusiasts, and generally cavort musically. It's all happening on Saturday, August 10th. The kids' session is from 10:30am-11:30am, followed by adults/teens from noon-1pm. I'll be putting on my professor hat, and we'll be at the Mount Pleasant Branch of the Public Library. Now, I can't provide ukuleles for everybody, so bring your ukulele! Price of admission: Your Mind. Just kidding, it's free.
