"BaD Dog Buffet" Album Is In The Can; VanceFunder Ends Feburary 1

BaD Dog Buffet
Went to press TODAY
Final chance for giving
Is like 15, 20 days away

More bad Afro-Rap-Haiku. But yeah the door closed on the $300 plus-name-in-the-album phase of the VanceFunder. Art and master stuff is all sent to the plant. From now until the end of the VanceFunder, I am trying to pay off radio and promotion, and reach the final goal of $20,000. I currently have $4,500 to go.
Funders and promotion and radio people get their premiums and CDs and downloads before everybody else. John & Suzy Q. Public Fan get CDs around 2nd - 3rd week of February. 
So yeah, we'll shut the door on this VanceFunder FEBRUARY 1

Gimmie some money, please?

Take note:

1.) any donations after today will be part of the Promotion Push. There will still be various premiums just don't get them earlier.

2.) Old school checks are always welcome. Lots of you seem to like that better. Write me at and I'll shoot you the office address.

Gimmie some money, please? (did I say that already?)

Here's the list of tunes, in the order they'll be on the album:

God Bless Everyone
Nothing From You
Out The Way We Came In
First Ring
Kiss The Bad Boys
For Evelyne
Holiday Employment
Garden In Winter
December 3rd
Unfamiliar Moon
Sweet Potato Dove

Last Minute Holiday Parties
Who cares what Holiday? Well, there's Valentine's Day. What a great surprise for your sweetie - or someone who ain't your don't get all spooky and stalky...

I've done 3, and there's 3 more on the schedule!! OOhh - just added anther as I was typing this. Dates are filling up. Email me at You can bring me home to your folks with the guarantee that I will eventually leave. Does it get better than that?

Here's what's coming up:

Friday, Jan 17th - Dallas TX
Uncle Calvin's Coffeehouse

North Park Presbyterian Church
9555 North Central Expressway
Dallas, TX

Tickets be going quickly, they always do. It is the greatest coffeehouse of the Southwest. Period.

Thursday, Jan 23rd - New London, NH
Flying Goose Brewpub

40 Andover Road
New London, NH

I haven't been to this intimate place in a while. The food is tremendous, the sound great.

Saturday, Jan 25th - Saratoga Springs, NY
Caffe Lena

47 Phila Street
Saratoga Springs, NY

I might have a few new CDs by this night!! 50 years ago Lena, the owner, once had to shush and reprimand the crowd for not listening more closely to a young man she felt had a lot to say...with that, this young man, Bob Dylan, continued with his set.

Please go to for more details on everything.

Please tell others to see me if you live nowhere near the shows on this mailer. People actually do come out when that happens!!

Keep the ugly gift sweater - you never know. And take at least one bite of the fruitcake.

Peace, to everybody. -Vance
