A Friend's Funeral, Wakefield, Tiverton, Des Moine, Chicago, Westport...and then some

Hi Ebbody,
 
First I play the funeral for one of the original Old White Men on Wednesday in PA for the spirit that will always be Donald Hallman. Can I get an Amen? 
 
--------------------------------------------------------------- 
 
Saturday, 9/27 Wakefield MA
Linden Tree Coffeehouse
326 Main Street
Wakefield, MA
 
Wakefield MA has a special place in my heart. It is the home of the Guillows Model Aircraft company. Many of us that do use our hands in hobby stuff have opened that Guillows box with the die-cut balsa parts and the uber-complete plans. It's not what those of us serious in the hobby actually fly anymore, but they're still there, that factory!! 

Well, I play the fabulous Linden Tree Coffeehouse which is in Guillows, MA, uh, I mean Wakefield, MA... (grin)

A Few Things
 
~ A few folks have asked to donate to a fund for me to make a Jazz Standards album. I may do a "soft kickstart" for this one, as it won't be a bank breaker. Lemme know if you're inclined, I'll let you know how.
 
~ I am available for coaching Wednesdays and Thursdays, in person at my place, I'll travel if appropriate ($$) and via Skype. Performance, Songwriting coaching, voice. Wednesdays are sometime full as we speak. Gimmie a shout. vance@vancegilbert.com
 
~ VGCHP (Vance Gilbert's Charity Holiday Party) time is upon us! Goes like this - you have a holiday party tween now and New Years, I play, we agree on a $$, I get 60% of that, the rest goes to the charity of your choice. vance@vancegilbert.com to book yours. 
 
Epilogue
You should see, at 93 years old, the custom lapel pins Donald Hallman made. His son, my best friend, is one of the world's top model aircraft builders. Apples, tree

Do me a favor this week? Use your hands to do something original that doesn't involve your computer or phone, will you?
 
Thanks,
See you in your woodsneck, and peace
