Dancing is going strong in Charleston. Swing, Lindyhop, the Charleston, and all of the variations on these poplar dances can be found throughout the town. Saturday, February 15th, I'll be playing banjo with the New South Jazz Men as we play for the Charleston Swing Dance Association's dance. I'm not sure how much it costs, but I'm sure it is reasonable! We'll play from 8-11pm. It's at the Knights' of Columbus Hall on Calhoun street, across from Marion Square. Swing on by!
Then I'll be back with the Jazz Men as they play the Sunday morning brunch at High Cotton. That's 10am-2pm. There is a small dance floor, too! Wahoo!
Sunday night the V-Tones are at the Tin Roof for a Leukemia/Lymphoma fundraiser. We'll be playing a late night set (the earlier set is covered by the Flat Foot Floozies)--plus there is a Vintage fashion show and prizes! It all goes for a good cause. $10 at the door.
Monday night I'm back at the Elliotborough Minibar (Bogard street), for some chill cocktail music. Come on in and get cozy and warm. 7-9pm.
Wednesday night (feb. 19th) the V-Tones are presenting a night of Gypsy Jazz at Prohibition. They have a dance night every Wednesday there, with free lessons at 7pm, and live music starting at 8pm. We play 'til about 11pm, and the show is free! Prohibition is cool---good drinks and food and an awesome dance floor.
Saturday night (feb. 22nd) Jeff Narkiewicz and I will be performing at O'Hara and Flynn's wine bar on Meeting street. Another cozy little joint! This place is good for tourists and locals alike. 8-11pm. No cover.
Sunday the 23rd leads us to Tropical Swing night at the Charleston Ballroom Dance Club (1632 Ashley Hall road). The lesson starts at 6pm, live music from 7:30-9:30pm. We'll have the V-Tones with Kay Haun, Hula by Kathy Bach and music from the Charleston Hot Shots! $10 includes everything, $5 if you bring your ukulele. This is going to be great!
