We hope you'll join us for the third Van-Dells Acoustic Show! We always have a blast at these. They start off with the guys playing some of their favorite songs, many of which, you wouldn't hear in a normal Van-Dells show. Then we open it up and take some requests, to hear what YOU want to hear!
Ring in 2018 with The Van-Dells! These shows are always a blast, and this year will be no exception! This year, Duke, Mark and Moose will be joined by Dave Brumley and Glenn Bowles. Also, the Next Generation will back this year, with a return from Grant 'Smitty' Smith! Please see the flyer below for ticket info!
Don't forget to get your tickets for our show in Centerville, Oh on 10-22-16! You can purchase them at www.ninamemorial.com or by phone at 937.657.5705.
Dave 'Chumley' Brumley will be back with the band for the full show, for one night only! Don't miss out on this fun show, plus proceeds go to a great cause.
Coming up for September
If you haven’t seen the show in awhile, you’re in for a treat. We have welcomed back Steve Ricks to The Van-Dells. You will remember him as “Moose”. He is an original member of the group when we started in 1974. There is a new feel to the show as Mark, Steve and I take you on a musical tribute of the 50’s into the 60’s. You don’t want to miss the new show. Here is where we will be this month!

A Special Note
It is a collection of songs written by Stacy Todd and Produced by Kasey Todd. The songs were written while traveling with The Van-Dells over the last 41 year. I have been getting positive feedback on the CD. I hope you’ll give it a listen.
It will also be available at the shows.
