Vance's New Years Newz

Hi VanceFans!!

Special welcome to all the new folks that signed up for my mailing list that saw me with Paul Reiser at Harrah's Atlantic City (rocked that house, didn't I?). Hi!! I won't bother you too much, I swear. 

Well, here's the New Year. I'm busy. Doing everything from co-writing with a midwest rapper to opening a mess of shows for Mad About You('s) Paul Reiser to recording a solo album of jazz standards. Oh, and playing my own shows, too. 

 ~ Jazz Vocal-Guitar Album & the World's Laziest Fundraiser for it - 

I do this. Me. Guitar. Vocals. 2 mics. We record through January. I might have these in my hands by March...

You do. Your Money. Your Name on the album, alphabetical, no matter how much $$ you donate totally Socialist Style. I make it available for download to you free, mail it to you if you plead. I don't care how much. $1 - $1000. Your name or in someone's memory. rubberscaleairlinerboy@gmail.com for PayPal. vance@vancegilbert.com for an address to shoot me a check. Or money when you see me.

~ Last Minute Post-Holiday Party - dates left vance@vancegilbert.com for inquiries.


~ Voice, Performance, Songwriting Coaching - vance@vancegilbert.com. Yeah, I'll give you plenty to do. One time or steady students welcome.

Venerable. As I believe I am becoming. I can't begin to say how many times I've played here. Nicely done scene, kinda defines the folk coffeehouse. That's why I keep doing it.

Kelly's living room defines house concert. It's superlative. Earlier afternoon show may be added if demand is high.

After singing at a pastor friend's church's Christmas Eve service on the same night as their open food pantry, I commented to Nando Michelin's (MONSTER pianist) wife Paoula how wacky the evening was with folks shouting out, walking around, clapping and hooting, and other varied disruptions. Her response:
 
"Real Christmas....Real people".
 
best, and peace
