Dear Readers:  
WHAT HAPPENED AT AJ'S LAST SATURDAY:
What looked like the start of another normal night with a big audience and a total 17 singers, turned into a rather dramatic early finish, but more about that later. With JOEL BAKER starting us out with "Check To Check" and me with "Anything Goes", we had our first special guest singer, someone new to our show named JIM ANDERSON and his songs, "Paper Moon" and later he sang "Norwegian Wood", then on to BARBARA FRANTZ and "Strange" and later "Leaving On My Mind", after that is when show took a turn, again more about that later... PATTI GALLAGHER was next singing a beautiful Italian Opera Aria called "Gianni Schicchi", next we had LORRETTA SIANI sharing a medley from her show this Sunday at ARTHUR NEWMAN THEATER, using "They Say It's Wonderful" with "I Got The Sun In The Morning". JB joined us again with a new song, "What I Did For Love", then we had DOUG GRAHAM with "Wheels Of A Dream" from RAGTIME. We also had PAT MCCANN there with "Call Me Irresponsible". NONI LAMBERTSON did a great job with her song "Can't Help Lovin' Dat Man Of Mine". And LINDSAY OUELLETTE came to sing "Rock-aby Your Baby", plus JEAN SORF was there with "Maybe This Time". Another new singer named RANDY SCOTT did a very nice job with "The Parties Over" and following him was another new singers, a talented woman named REBECCA HAWKINS with "I Say A Little Prayer For You". And there was BONNIE GILGALLON did "Route 66" and to let us know she will be the headline entertainer this Friday at AJ's along with JOEL BAKER on piano, with show time 6:30 to 9:30 PM. Next up was MARCIA HARP with "Over The Rainbow" with the audience joining in towards the end. And JASON HULL once again brought in a very interesting and heartfelt song called simply "Peace", plus we had TONY DE SIENA up to sing "You've Changed". Now, you notice after Barbara's second song there are no second songs for the rest of the singer in the second round? Well one of our audience sitting right up front and center, fainted from what we later found was a medical condition. Keeping up 'the show must go on' tradition, Barbara finish her song and then we had Joel fill in with some piano solos while the EMT's arrived and we announce the show would finish early. When I left around 9:30 she was taken to the hospital to be checked out and I heard she went home that night and is just fine. So that was it for another night of Cabaret On The Green Open Mic. We will be back this Saturday with many of the desert's best singers so come out and watch or if you are a great singer and want to be in the show, get there around 6:30 to sign up. Bring your sheet music if you can.  
 
Reservation for dinner and seating in main room recommended.
 
Singers should bring their sheet music and sign up starts about 6:30 and show at 7:30 pm. See you then!
Until then... 

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.  
 

LESLIE TINNARO sure packed the theater last Sunday and got 2 standing ovations for her incredible show. There are still 2 more shows to go for this Summer and the next season is almost full. Wait till you see all the fabulous performers are already scheduled, and will be announced very soon. Here are some hints: one has their picture in one of the boxes in this column below, and another one is a sreturn how from last season that got multiple DTL nominations and broke the all time attendance record.
 
And we'll have another great entertainer who has brought us 2 shows before, returning with a brand new show, LORETTA SIANI in "There's No Business Like Show Business" with WAYNE ABRAVANEL on the baby grand. Also Judges from DESERT THEATRE LEAGUE will be there so your being there will make it a very special show not to be missed!

This Sunday is:
 And followed by:
 
 
 
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.

TO MAKE IT BETTER!       
 
You don't have to let small worries grow into big anxieties. You don't have to let small setbacks grow into larger narrative of failure. 
The world will throw obstacles and surprises in your path. Instead of allowing them to stop you, let them energize you into action.

This day is too beautiful, too full of possibilities to let it be ruined by small mistakes, and by what is beyond your control.  
Focus not on what has gone wrong, but on what can now go right, and on what you can do to make it better.
