This version of the V-Tones is the classic quartet! We'll be doing what we do--making the dance floor bop up and down--while you do what you do which is swinging and getting down! The good people at Prohibition clear out the dining room for a dance floor on Wednesdays and Sundays, so come on a join the merry throng.

The V-Tones of Charleston
Thursday, Feb. 12th
The exploratory investigation league will send out a trio to play at the is new venue (new to us at least). It's bound to be a good time, and it's check out the time-frame, all you earlybirds! Jazz, pre-war Blues, Swing music, Hot Club, Jugband, retrophilic rave up fun--that's what we do! We'd love to see some familiar faces out here in the new territory.
The lovely and talented Mrs. Eden Fonivelle and I will be performing as The Amazing Mittens this year at the cozy downtown spot, O'Hara and Flynn's for Valentine's Day. If you haven't been, you've just got to go--it's wonderful. It's on Meeting street (down here in Charleston, SC) and we play from 8-11pm. There's no cover, so you can spend your romance moola on a bottle of wine and some delicious food stuffs! It's a great place to hang either before or after dinner, too. We'd love to see y'all there.
