Harvest Holiday Events!

***Happy Harvest Holidays! OK Friday night (25th) we're at the Old Jail for the American College of Building Arts' annual Red Party. It's a  hoot---this year the theme is 'Great Gatsby" with old cars, cocktails, flapper girls and the V-Tones! Our kind of party---but it's a tuxedo gig--so pony up $75 to get in---and don't tell 'em I sent ya!

***The V-Tones quartet will be waking up the neighbourhood in Park Circle. That's up in North Charleston, on Saturday, October 26th, and we play from 8-10pm. They'll have a costume contest and oh yes, the Local Honeys are playing, too. We're going to get weird. Be prepared.  Totally Free.

***The nation's first commuter train, "The Best Friend", started up here in the Lowcountry, way back in 1830. In celebration, I'll be playing music from various decades on Monday, October 28th. That's at the Summerville Museum, and I'll be making music from 2-4pm. Yes, it's free, as well!

I Like Boats

Ahoy there Mateys! Join the V-Tones at our free show at the Georgetown Wooden Boats Festival! That's Saturday, October 19th, and we'll play from noon-4pm. Georgetown recently had a big fire downtown, so I'm sure the community can use your support. There'll be other bands, food, and lots of boats to check out. We hope to see y'all out there! 

Swing Dance!

Get the Swing thing going with the V-Tones! This time around we've got our buddy Clint Fore on tuba, with the usual gang of nuts as well. It's happening on Sunday, Oct. 13th, at the Charleston Ballroom Dance Club (1632 Ashley Hall rd.). Lessons start at 6pm, with live music from 7:30-9:30pm. Lindyhop, Swing, the Charleston, all this for just $10! Thanks to our good friends at the Roaring Twenties Hot Jazz Dance Club for putting this together.
  Out and about and downtown on Sunday afternoon? Some pals and I'll be playing Le Swing Musique on King Street for Second Sunday. It's a traffic free zone! Dancing in the streets! Be there!

Lovely Lindsay's Voodoo Jazz

I get to play with Lindsay Holler! She's been playing around Charleston in dozens of configurations, playing all kinds of genres. I've heard her cover Johnny cash and Sonic Youth. Tuesday night, Oct. 8th, she'll be leading the Hollerettes through some sets of Jazz standards, and I'll be on the 4 string Tenor Banjo. That's at Voodoo in Avondale.  Also on board is Stuart White (drums) Ben Wells (bass) and Gerald Gregory (keys). This is gong to be a hot show! Wowza! I'm not sure if there's a cover, but If there is it'll be worth it!

Also: Sunday night (Oct. 13th) is Swing Night! The V-Tones are back at the Ballroom Dance Club. Lessons are from 6-7:30pm, with live 'Tones from 7:30-9:30pm. Get yer dance on! Get lucky!  $10---thanks Roaring Twenties Hot Jazz Dance Club!
