World's Laziest Fundraiser Closes, STANDERDZ is the album title, and shows!

Hi VanceFans!!

It's melting, it's melting!!! Finally!!

~ STANDERDZ - the solo Vocal Guitar album  - Now that's a fun title, isn't it? We're just about all mixed and mastered. Man, was it ever fun to record. I've been clawing away at the liner notes.

The songs, in order (man, arranging that order was as hard as playing them!!) as they'll be on the CD:

I'll Buy You A Star
Moonlight In Vermont
'Round Midnight
Mas Que Nada 
For The Good Times
I'm Beginning To See The Light
Prelude To A Kiss
Ain't Misbehavin'
Nearness Of You
When Sunny Gets Blue  
Weaver Of Dreams

Nope, no originals, no other instruments. Voice, guitar, hardly no overdubs. One of the tunes is pretty much a cappella. Can you guess which one?

~ WLF (World's Laziest Fundraiser) -  Since the artwork is nearly done, the door for donations to the Worlds Laziest Fundraiser for this CD closes in ONE WEEK. Why is that important? You want your name on this CD, don't you?

WLF = you give money = your name on the CD alphabetically = $2 to $500 or any amount = you get a CD if you ask and probably a download.

How lazy is all that? Send PayPal to or just write there for my office address. And ONE WEEK is indeed an extention from the last mailer because I just bought the recording rights to the list of tunes above, so writers are paid, but man, that was expensive!! So you have till Tuesday 3/17 to pony up. And thanks.

~ Private voice, performance, songwriting, guitar coaching - Yeah. I do that Info here if you are so inclined. Mostly Wednesdays, some Thursdays, only a few slots still open.

~ Gigs - Yeah, I'm working:
