Dear Readers:    


 
WHAT HAPPENED LAST WEEK AT OSCAR'S:

Last week was not the turnout expect but with 6 singers plus WAYNE ABRAVANEL & I, those who stayed each got to do more songs with Wayne doing "The Lady Is A Tramp", "Blue Moon", "Don't Get Around Much Anymore" & "I've Got The World On A string" and I sang "Where Or When", "Love Me Or Leave Me", & "Old Friend", followed by LORETTA SIANI before going to an appointment, sang "Guilty", then BARBARA FRANTZ "Hallelujah, I Just Love Him So", ALAN JON did "Love Is A Many Splendored Thing", "Misty", & "Chances Are", followed by DOUG GRAHAM and "Till There Was You", "If Ever I Would Leave You", "Corner Of The Sky", & "Mi Mancherai", and VICKI KNIGHT with "Kratchma", "You Made Me Love You", & Rock-a-bye Your Baby", MARTY MANGUN doing "Route 66", "My romance" & "You Go To My Head", and BARRY MONEY singing "Hello In There", & "Fever". So not so many singers but we did have JOHN EDMONDS & CAROL with a few friends plus another 10 or so in the audience. Our Singers Only Raffle prize of a $25 gift certificate went Vicki. JOEL BAKER returns this week and should be there regularly every Wednesday for the time being. So come and make this the best night for live entertainment in Down Town Palm Springs!

We also want to encourage all of our singers to come out on Tuesdays and sing for OSCAR'S IDOL with a cash prize of $150. If you do, make sure you let all your friends know to come out too because the prize goes to the most audience applause. Last week's winner was VICKI KNIGHT.

WHAT HAPPENED AT AJ'S LAST SATURDAY: 
 
Another crazy busy night with our special guest pianist RICHARD BERENT and a really full house. I started off with "42nd Street" and then we had LORETTA SIANI with "Surrey With The Fringe On The Top", "I'll Get Along" and announce her new assignment as personal assistant to WILLIAM SHATNER who will be here for a while shooting "SENIOR MOMENT", a new feature film that may still be looking for extras (see the notice in this column), then we had GEORGE LEWIS and "Back To Sorento", & "Earthbound", BETH FORMELOZA sang "New York State Of Mind", & "Moonlight In Vermont", FERDIE FORMELOZA did "Who Can I Turn To", & "What Kind Of Fool Am I", RAFE CORRELL sang "Moon Light Serenade", LINDSAY OUELLETTE gave us "On the Street Where You Live", JEAN SORF doing "Fools Rush In", DOUG GRAHAM did "The Life That I Never Led", & "On The Wheels Of A Dream", BARBARA FRANTZ sang "Don't It Make My Brown Eyes Blue", PAT MCCANN did "I Remember You", & "It's Magic", and SHARON SILL with "Be My Baby", 2 time OPEN CALL winner, GERALD COLUCCI came to sing "You, The Night, and The Music", LESLIE TINNARO gave us "There's Been A Change In Me", & "Over The Rainbow", VICKI KNIGHT did "Can't Help Loving That Man Of Mine", & "Will Meet Again Some Sunny Day", also there after a long absents was JAN ABRAMS with "Down Town", & "How About You", a new singer visiting from Chicago, JOHN CONCEPCION was there for dinner with friends and sang "Bring Him Home", DONNY TEETER did "My Ship", & "The Start of The Blues", and there was also MARIANNA who sang "The Coachman" in Russian no less, it wasn't familiar to Richard so it was a bit difficult but our wonderful singers and audience helped her along by clapping to the music and make her feel more comfortable. JOEL BAKER is back with us this Saturday and should be for the duration with the exception of a vacation later in Summer. So we hope to see you there....

COOL CABARET, JAZZ & STANDARDS! 



MORE GOODNESS...
  
Care, not because anyone else does. Care because it is the most meaningful things you can do. 

Care, not because you are expected to. Care because of how your caring sincerely fulfills you. 

Care by listening, by understanding, by being there. Care by being patient, honest, and generous.

It's easy to become jaded and cynical, yet far better is when you care. Care, and create More Goodness to care about. :)
