Vance is...North MA, South MA, the WEB, Chicago, and Long Island!!

Hi Vance Enthusiasts!!

It's time.

Time to have your fall/winter Private Party - with me as entertainment.

I'm less expensive than you think, and all I usually need is a livingroom and chairs for your friend's butts! December is particularly open, but yeah pick a night and get in touch with me - - and we'll see what acoustic musical havoc we can create!

Yes. A Vance show in your house.

Note too, I'm happy to play for even less if we give some of the $$ away to a charity of your choosing. Yeah. I'm like that.

Gimmie a holler and we'll do something

Sat 9/19, Rockport MA
Old Sloop Coffeehouse / First Congregational Church
12 School Street
Rockport, MA

This weekend I'm at this place and the folks seem so nice! It's near the water up north a teeny bit - come make a day of it! Hope to see some Marblehead, Newburyport, & NH fans. Jim Trick opens..

SUNDAY, 9/20, 2015   1:00PM

Sat 9/26, Franklin MA
Circle of Friends Coffeehouse
First Univeralist Society Meeting House
262 Chestnut Street
Franklin , MA

They've been called "the finest church coffeehouse in the country". The director and I even have the same type dog. Get tix early, as this one fills up. That's a good thing…Casey Abrams opens - note him - if you were to mix Steven Bishop and Richard Thompson…yeah, it's like that.


10:00 AM Sunday, September 27th at the 2015 Greater Boston Walk to End Alzheimer's.
North Point Park, Cambridge, MA
Cambridge, MA 02129

Yeah. 1 song. I sing the National Anthem. Boom. Then they feed me. Boom. A great cause - I'm currently dealing with a loved one living in the realm of dementia, so this one is close to my heart. Come hear me, walk, donate. Whatever you want...


Tues, 9/29, Evanston (Chicago) Il.
1245 Chicago Avenue
Evanston, IL
OFFICE 847-492-8860

It's on a Tuesday night, but ticket sales are already smoking! I'll get you home in time for Kimmel/Colbert/Fallon/Obrien, I promise...

Saturday 10/3/ Folk Music Society of Huntington
Congregational Church of Huntington
30 Washington Drive
Centerport , NY

These folks needed a folk performer in a hurry thanks to a Canadian act whose visa application fell apart. Doesn't leave much lead time for me, but I know folks will come out from Paul Reiser shows, and other LI coffeehouse appearances I've done over the years. I love this place and I'm elated that I was on their "let's get him!!" list. Thank goodness I have a folk music beeper set on "emergency alert". See you on the 3rd!!


New tunes - Zombie Pattycake will finally be memorized, but if not, I'm playing it anyway. Good, Good Man - will be showcased - it's ready. Another new one called Rental Car might stay in the notebook but I'll read it down for you…

Speaking of new tunes, the prodding about a Hello Pluto song of sorts has indeed given me a new song called Flyby

Coaching - My Wednesdays are almost full, Thursdays have 3 students (one just added - hi Sophia!!) but yes, there are openings. Lemme know what you want to do - voice, guitar, performance, songwriting. I'm pretty good at all of it...

Come see me, or tell someone you know somewhere to do so.
