Hey everybody! Do you have a ukulele that needs some attention? Are you interested in learning how to play it? We will be covering the basics in this 4 week Beginner's Ukulele Class. Tune, strum, pick and play your ukulele and learn how to make music with others. Noodle will have time to teach the class as a whole as well as provide individual attention. Learn songs that are fun to play on the ukulele each Saturday in February. The Kids' Class is from 10am -11am, followed by Adult Beginner's from 11am-noon. For the complete series it is $80, or $25 for drop-ins. We'll have you dreaming on Hawaii in no time!

Noodle: Fearless leader of the V-Tones of Charleston and local ukulele enthusiast, Noodle McDoodle, has a colorful muical and theatrical history. He got his nickname while working at Wavy Gravy's Camp Winnarainbow (a circus and performing arts camp), and has studied the uke with Joel Eckhaus, Gerald Ross, Jim Deville, Li'L Rev and Pops Bayless. He has taught at the North Carolina Ukulele Academy, and at the Augusta Heritage Music Camp's Swing week. These days he enjoys playing music fro Swing dances, listening to records and solving quadratic equations.
Ah...the wake up call! Time to stretch, grab my ol' uke and head to the coffeeshop. On Friday, January 24th I'll be doing just that at the Elliotborough Minibar, starting up around 9am. The EBMB is on Bogard street, just up a few blocks from D'Allesandro's Pizza. It's cozy and a great place for acoustic music.We'll get through this together. Drop on in!
Check out the travelling band, the Bumper Jacksons at the Sparrow (North Charleston) on Tuesday night, January 7th. The V-Tones will open for them, probably going on around 9pm. We all play fun Jazz, Swing, Jugband and party music. Come on out! If there is a cover it's pretty small. Support live music! Support travelling musicians! Wahoo!
Dance your way into a brand new year with the V-Tones! We'll be at the Charleston Ballroom Dance Club (1632 Ashley Hall Road) on Sunday, January 5th. Lessons will start at 6pm, followed by live music at 7:30pm. This is always a fun place to play! $10 gets you everything--lessons, live music, snacks, jokes and exercise. Remember Dancing! the fun way to stay in shape! We'd love to see everybody there!
