Got a nice email the other day from Randy Alexander, Kenny Vance’s publicist thanking me for the piece I did about the Planotones and my new personal theme song, “Looking For An Echo.”

Hello, Dean:

I just came across your kind words/posting on my publicity client, KENNY VANCE. I recently added him to my roster and have been working diligently at conveying the same message that you so eloquently posted on your blog. It’s people like you who validate what Kenny does not only to him, but to the subsequent generations he is on a tireless mission to reach.

I keep meaning to answer him back but as you may have noticed, time isn’t exactly on my side these days. Regardless, I’m always happy to give credit where credit is due and Kenny Vance deserves all the attention that comes his way… and you deserve a chance to hear his music.

Speaking of which, Randy went on to point out that Kenny and his band were recently featured on the Fox television show, Good Day New York where they did a couple of numbers from their new CD, “Countdown To Love.”

Also, be sure to check out the YouTube Video on my post if you missed it and visit The Planotones website where — if you’re lucky enough to live on the East Coast – you can check their tour schedule and go hear these guys in person. (Or pick up a couple of their CD’s.)

Kenny Vance and the Planotones are keeping the music alive and from where I sit, that’s all that really matters.

“Cause we were looking for an echo,
An answer to our sound,
A place to be in harmony,
A place we almost found.”

Doo Wop forever,
