Spring Has Done Sprung

Things are popping up all over! The V-Tones are very busy--so there are lots of opportunities to catch us this week.
Wednesday (March 26th) we'll be back at Prohibition, a Jazz Club on King street. Wednesday is dance night-so get on your smooth shoes and cut loose! Stephen Duane gives a free lesson after 7pm, and then the live band (us) starts up at 8pm. This is lots of fun--good food, too!
 Got uke will travel? I'm leading the jam at the Gathering on Thursday, March 27th. The Gathering is on the corner of Sam Rittenburg and Orange Grove in West Ashley.  Usually we meet 6:30-9pm.  Free, but get some food or something to drink,-bring your ukulele!
  Sunday, (March 30th), ukulele friends and fellow musicians will be up at Cypress Gardens for a camp happy Days Luau, and that's 11am-2pm. The Luau lasts all day. The regular park admission is $10, I believe, and they've got boats and alligators and spring flowers! It should be nice and relaxing....

V is for Volunteer! The V-Tones of Charleston are leading a marching mob for the Teddy Bears' Picnic at Hampton Park on Sunday, March 9th.
