V-Tones, Ukuleles and Silent Movies Appearing at JR Communications Museum

This entry was posted on Wednesday, April 21st, 2010

The ukulele, jug playing sextet the V-Tones will be playing the music for an evening of silent movies at the John Rivers Communication Museum April 29th at 7:30pm. The films include a very early (1907) version of Alice in Wonderland.  Anyone and everyone is invited to show up and share the “multimedia” live  experience.

About the V-Tones
The V Tones began in the early 21st century with Sandy, Noodle and Eden playing songs from the early 20th century. Since then, it has twisted, turned, shaped and morphed…sometimes as a quaint duo, other times a sizzling sextet. We craft our shows to fit the moment so no performance is ever the same. Also known as Charleston’s only ukulele hot club jug band vaudeville ragtime neo-retro-postpostmodern beachfront quasi-primitime anachronistic revolutionary anti-inflammatory mass catharsis jazz freakout and philharmonic group therapy session.
