NJ & NY Benefits, House Parties,   Big Branchburg Show

Hi Everyone!

Sunday's Turning Point 2000th Show w/The Roots Agency Celebration was terrific! Famous folks in attendance were: most of Gandalf Murphy and the Slambovian Circus of Dreams (http://www.slambovia.com/), a real busman's holiday for them. Also popping in was Tom Chapin - yep, *that* Tom Chapin, Jordi Herold (ex-Iron Horse owner and manager from my past) and his lovely wife Elizabeth, and a room full of people were there to celebrate. I kinda rocked the house. Fave of mine was an Icarus By Night / Dimming Of The Day Medley that I totally didn't plan...Thanks everyone. Hopefully I'll do 2000 more shows.

I'm closing the calendar with this or the next mailing, so grab dates that aren't listed above. For those that don't remember, here are the rules:

1)  Like last year, (when my dog was sick?) I come play your Holiday Party. 3 to 50 people,
2)  Pay between $500 - $999, depending on party size, your means, what you feel like paying,
3)  pay with 2 checks,
4)  60% to me,
5)  40% to a charity of your choice - matching giving from your work/friends accepted - I'll post who we give to on the site, so there can be more gift matching...
6)  invite your friends,
7)  feed them, (and me...)
8)  yay....

Addendum.
a) Travel more than a drive? - you pay, me fly.
b) Circumference? Get a hold of me, we'll talk.
c) I have a teeny weeny sound system - usually don't need one. Let me know about the space we'll be in and we'll talk.
d) Valentine's Day - same price.
e) New Years rates $800 - 1400.

Nice chance for us to have a shindig, hear my new tunes, and do something good for folks in need.

vancegilbertholidayparty@gmail.com is the happening place to go to get in touch with me...

Head over to https://vancegilbert.com to read the new blog too.

It's the season for giving, so do something different than littering the living room...

In any case, peace, and see you at a show....
