Vance Does Austin X 3!!!

It's Black History Month, so of course I'm going to Texas!! 

…Neither one of those things has anything to do with the other, but I got your attention. This area of Texas, thanks in great part to the Kerrville Folk Festival, has become a pretty fair stomping ground of popularity for me. Come join in the fun!!
In the meantime, here's stuff you could know if you wanted to:
Worlds Laziest Fundraiser (WLF) -  for the Jazz Standards album closes in about 2 weeks. Want to help? Get you name on the CD? Donate any amount - any amount to for PayPal, write me there for an address for checks.Thanks Jeff & Andy, Gail, and a few other folks I'm sure I've forgotten.
Speaking of which, boy oh boy, Duke Ellington is hard stuff to sing down. As is Fats Waller. One more tune, in Portuguese, will round this album, then Sean Staples and I will mix...Thanks for your faith in me.
Coaching - Yeah, songwriting, performance, voice, I even have a guitar student. By Skype, too. Ping me at for details. Hit me there too for Private Parties - I am more affordable than you think, and far more affordable than Richard Thompson…I think..
Here's where I'll be:

Friday, Feb 6th, Austix TX
Barker House Concerts or by calling (512) 327-7618
Paul is the nicest guy... You'll love his house.
Saturday, Feb 7th, Dripping Springs, TX
Sycamore Creek House Concerts
Here's what these folks say about me:
"Vance Hasn't played in Austin in quite some time, we joined with two other house concerts in the area to bring Vance in for a 3 concert weekend. We are certain this one will sell out at all 3 concerts.."
How can they be other than right? ..Maybe they don't get out much..
