More Vance-gigs for January '10!

Thank you.

Thanks for a couple of things. First, the Club Passim show was indeed a sellout.

That hasn't happened in a few years...there is indeed "something happening", as my shows are burgeoning with folks.

I think the people-telling-people thing really does work.

The foremost story was that I was hoping to sell enough CDs to the crowd to maybe send a $150 - $200 check to Partners In Health (http://www.pih.org/), one of the signature on-the-ground relief groups doing their best in Haiti. I know how CD sales can be after the holidays, particularly to an established audience. Either way, I was just going to take the CD money, write an equivalent check, and send it off. $350 was put in an envelope, and there were about 11 CDs gone. At $15 per CD...you do the math.

My fans are the best. Thanks.
