DEAR READERS
 
CABARET ON THE GREEN AT AJ'S LAST SATURDAY:
Well you probably heard I goofed last week saying that JOEL BAKER would be with us when in fact we were to have RICHARD BERENT on Saturday night as well as this coming Saturday night. So with that said, we had a very good night last week with a total of 14 singers plus myself singing ""Where Or When" and "I Could Write A Book", and our special guest singers included FRED HARDIN with "Don't Get Around Much Anymore", and "On The Sunny Side Of The Street". Also, DONALD HOUTZ came in to sing "Gay Paree" from his show the next day at ARTHUR NEWMAN THEATER, which was such fun and so well staged and presented by Donald with the help of his musical director the amazing JOHN RANDALL. Then we had LORETTA SIANI, who stayed to the end so we got to hear her sing 3 songs including a new song, "If I Only Had A Brain", and her incredible "Both Sides Now", and "Every Tiome We Say Goodbye". Up next we had PATTI GALLAGHER with the almost never heard "Zip A Dee Do Dah", and later "Can't Help Lovin' Dat Man O' Mine". And a singer named BOB BUNYARD sang "Desperado" and did the best job on the very difficult "American Pie". He was brought to us by MATT BORZELLO who sang "A Portrait Of My Love", and also did a great job on "Pieces Of Dreams". He also brought us another wonderful singer named DAN that sang "Quando, Quando, Quando". Plus we had our 3 time MCCALLUM OPEN CALL finalist, LINDSAY OUELLETTE with his songs, "You Don't Know Me", and "Merry Christmas Darling". He was followed by JEAN SORF with "I've Got You Under My Skin" in a new uptempo she worked out with Richard, and later got a roar of cheers for "The Way We Were". Only there for one song but it was worth it to hear BRAD SIEPLE doing "I Want To Go Home". After him we had MICHAEL SANDERS back after an absence to sing "Charade" and "The Nearness Of You". Next we had PAT MCCANN with "Like SomeOne In Love". JB with "I'll Be Home For Christmas". ROY PROVANCE with "I Remember April". Also ALAN JON did "It's Impossible", and "What Kind Of Fool Am I". TONY DISIENA sang "God Bless The Child" and "When I Fall In Love". And coming in after her show at FRANKIE'S, MARCIA HARP singing the last song of the night, "Maybe This Time". So once again we had a very good night considering many people were at holiday parties throughout the desert. This Saturday we're planning to have another great night with RICHARD BERENT on piano, and he think TONIA BERN CAMPBELL may be with us again too, she blew everyone away two weeks ago and people have asked when she will return again. So come out and see us and all the wonderful talent - only at AJ'S ON THE GREEN for CABARET ON THE GREEN OPEN MIC.  
 
Reservation for dinner and seating in main room recommended
 
HERE'S A GOOD TIP: Reservations are a good idea for dinning in the showroom. But if you get the answering machine do not leave a reservation on it. But call after 5 PM and press '1' at the end of the message and it will transfer to the bar where it will be answered by a real person who will take your reservations. DO NOT LEAVE RESERVATIONS ON THE ANSWERING MACHINE! 

PLEASE, won't you click YELP US and tell your friends too that we have the best singers in town and we do it LIVE!  EVERY YELP HELPS
 
AJ'S NOTE: There is a HUGE parking lot just past the front lot on your left. Remember to make reservations and see you next time.  
 

What a hit DONALD HOUTZ show was last Sunday! Very funny and so well written, I wish DESERT THEATRE WORKS had been there because there would surely have been 5 nominations in 5 categories.  
 
And this Sunday is a singer I have known for a long time named GREG GLIENNA, who is a very talented screen writer known for his script for "Meet The Parents", "A Guy Thing", "Relative Strangers", and "Desperation Boulevard". He is joined by singer, actress, jazz and classical pianist MARINA PACOWSKI. There show is called "Together" and features songs, both solos and duets, plus a number of skits and pantomime sketches that you'll love! Don't miss this one!!!!

SPECIAL REPEAT PERFORMANCE:
   
AND FINISHING OUR 10TH SEASON:
  
DO YOU REMEMBER THURSDAY NIGHTS IN THE  
TEN20 LOUNGE AT THE BEAUTIFUL BEL AGE HOTEL  
IN WEST HOLLYWOOD?

IT SEEMS LIKE ONLY YESTERDAY BUT IT WAS REALLY AROUND 2003 - 2006. THE NIGHT STARTED WITH "THE GUEST STARS SHOWCASE" AND 4 PERFORMERS DOING A SHORT SET AROUND 15 MINUTES AND 3 TO 4 SONGS. RON SNYDER, THE HOUSE PIANIST, PLAYED FOR THEM AND AFTER A SHORT BREAK WE CONTINUED THE NIGHT WITH OPEN MIC. IT REALLY WAS A FABULOUS ROOM WITH GREAT FOOD, GORGEOUS BABY GRAND, AND THAT VIEW! 

I HAD SO MANY DIGITAL PHOTOS FROM THOSE NIGHTS BUT LOST THEM WHEN MY COMPUTER DIED ABOUT 4 YEARS AGO. BUT I RECENTLY FOUND THE PAPTER PROGRAM I PUT TOGETHER FROM THE VERY LAST NIGHT THERE AFTER THE HOTEL WAS SOLD, IT'S NOW CALLED LONDON WEST. ANYWAY, I COMPILED A LIST OF ALL 383 GUEST STARS FROM THE 140 SHOWS ON A SPECIAL WEB PAGE IN CASE ANYONE WANTS TO SEE ALL THE INCREDIBLE SINGERS WHO CAME TO BE PART OF IT. I ALSO HAVE LOTS OF OLD "MINI - DVD'S" TAKEN OF A LOT OF THE SHOWS. ONCE I LEARN HOW TO TRANSFER THEM TO THE WEB I WILL POST THEM FOR YOU TO SEE.

OVERCOMING PERFORMANCE ANXIETY!          
 
Sleepless nights, anxious butterflies, sweaty palms - it can only mean one thing. You have a show or a recording session coming up (and good ol' fear of not being good enough along with it). Relax. You're not alone. Singing and talking in front of others is cited as one of people's biggest fears.  The key to success is preparation and practice.
 
The most important thing is to realize that it's not about you but your audience. Don't get so preoccupied with yourself and your anxieties, that you forget that the real point of your performance isn't about impressing others but about emotional connection, making sure everyone is having good time, including yourself. A little story about yourself, a few words before each song will give your audience a chance to better understand you, and what your songs are all about.  
 
It is also useful to videotape yourself in advance, to see what needs work, and practice before a trusted friend who can provide you with honest but encouraging feedback. It can be a challenging experience, though - (no one likes criticism and being vulnerable) - but it's the best way to see first-hand what you're doing well and what needs to improve. Keep working on your voice and rehearsing your songs until your performance really shines.
