DEAR READERS: 
 
CABARET ON THE GREEN AT AJ'S LAST SATURDAY:
Yes, we had a wonderful full house again! And some of our fabulous singers and wonderful list of songs. JOEL BAKER started us of with "It's A Grand Night For Singing", then me with "Too Marvelous For Words". The first of our 19 guest singers was FRED MILLER, who we've not seen in a very long time so what a surprise having him there to sing "Embraceable You". After that we had MARCIA HARP with "You Can Never Hold A Woman Down", and "Maybe This Time". ROSANNE HOPKINS followed with a little peek of her hit Cole Porter show she did on Sunday with "Night And Day", and "I Love Paris".   
Another surprise was having THOM MCMORRIS there with his songs "I Took A Trip On A Train", and we all loved his "Bewitched". Next was ALAN JON and "I'm Never Going To Fall In Love Again", and later "Where Do You Start". We also had DOUG GRAHAM there with two sensational songs from the Broadway stage, first it was "Music Of The Night" from PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, and "Waiting For Life To Begin" from ONCE UPON THIS ISLAND. JEFF LESSER, who will be doing his show, LIFE UPON THE WICKED STAGE this Sunday, came with two songs I really love, "Somethings Coming" from WEST SIDE STORY, and later "If I could Spend My Life With You". BRAD SIEPLE came and wowed the audience with "Out Here On My Own" and "This Is The Moment". JEAN SORF brought out the popular "Love Is A Many Splendored Thing" and "Come Rain Or Come Shine". Followed by NONI LAMBERTSON with "A Very Special Thing", and "Here's That Rainy Day". And BARBARA FRANTZ with "Goodie Goodie" and was on the money with her new song, "I'm Sorry". SHARON SILLS was there for one song before UBER showed up, and it was our 3rd song of the night with "Rain" in the title doing "Come In From The Rain". Also just doing one song was FRED HARDIN and a fabulous job singing "Georgia". Back again for one more performance before he and his wife return to St. Louis was WALTER SCHULTZ and "You're Nobody Till Somebody Loves You", and later singing "It Had To Be You". DAVE BARMORE is getting to be one of our regulars, this time singing the ED SHEERAN hit "Perfect" and later LIONEL RICHIE'S "Hello". It is always a treat when VICKI KNIGHT comes to sing and the audience really loved her "Honey Bee", and also her medley using "I Want To Be Loved By You" with "Everything Today Is Thoroughly Modern". Also taking time for work to sing "You've Changed" was our own TONY DISIENA. And we should not have let LOREN sing "You Don't Know Me" because 1. he didn't know the words or was too drunk to remember them, and 2. he was with two guys in the bar and all three were extremely loud most of the night, never again! And we had a guy who just went by JOHNNY P there from out of town and brought in by a friend so he could sing "The Lady Is A Tramp", and "Fly Me To The Moon", and he was pretty good too. I also want to say it was wonderful to have in the audience, JOHN EDMONDS & CAROL and also KAREN & BARRY STEINER there as well as so many other returning friends and fans and a lot of new faces in the audience too.  
 
 
And that was it...  so we'll be back this Saturday along with lots and lots of great singers.  See you then.    
 
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.  
 
It was another great show last week with ROSANNE HOPKINS and her full house on Sunday and it will be another fabulous show this week with JEFF LESSER and once again it will be JOEL BAKER back on piano for "Life Upon The Wicked Stage"... and you can see our amazing new carpeted stage! See you there?

HERE'S SOME RECENT PICTURES BEFORE

The Winter Season Brochure:
THIS SUNDAY: 
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.

"WHAT IS THE VALUE OF YOUR HAPPINESS?"           
 
Happiness is not found in some imagined perfect someday. The value of happiness is in living it now. Making it happen, enjoying and experiencing it right now.
 
Don't put off the living of your life just because conditions are not perfect. Go ahead and experience fully each and every day of the amazing journey you're on. 
 
Let go of conditions you've placed on happiness, and simply allow it to flow, right here, right now. Every conversation, activity and person adds value to your life.
 
Fill your heart with gratitude and open your awareness to the best possibilities. Life is experienced in the living of it. And it is is here for you to love and to enjoy.
