DEAR READERS: 
 
CABARET ON THE GREEN AT AJ'S LAST SATURDAY:
Very busy night last Saturday for diners and a lot of spectators who took tables in the bar, and we had 21 singers, many who were new or from out of town, or new to the area. JOEL BAKER started us off with "Ain't That A Kick In The Head", then I sang "You Can't Take That Away From Me". And our first singer was newcomer JEFF KING who did "Bad, Bad, LeRoy Brown", and later "Fly Me To The Moon". ALAN JON brought us "What Kind Of Fool Am I", and later "My Favorite Year" by special request from a fan. Up next was FRED HARDIN and his songs were "Route 66", and later "It Had To Be You". PATTI GALLAGHER was next with "Almost Like Being In Love", and later a Classical Opera piece called "Babbino Caro". Another new singer named JOSEPH DIETZ, who I think was from out of town and came with 3 friends for dinner, singing "In The Garden". PAT MCCANN was fabulous as always with her songs, "Too Marvelous For Words", and "Let's Face The Music and Dance". We also had JOHN SPINKS with "Around The World", and his second song was "Alfie", which was perfection. BARBARA FRANTZ was really funny and had the audience laughing with her patter before her song, "Crazy", and later did "Someone To Watch Over me". We welcomed SHARON SILLS back from a cruise with husband RJ, and her songing "I Am What I Am", which is going to open her show this Sunday at Venus de Fido. JB was there with "Out Here On My Own" from FAME THE MUSICAL, and later it was "Younger Than Springtime". It's always nice to see JEFFREY LESSER, and his songs were "How Do You Keep The Music Playing", and later he did a brilliant job with a very difficult, SONDHEIM song, "Could I Leave You". New singer, RACHEL MARTINEZ really got into her songs by wearing different hats for "Fine On The Outside", and a Country song "You Ain't Woman Enough To Take My Man". And next it was MATT BORZELLO and "Let's Change Partners And Dance". ROSANNE HOPKINS did a very lively "Hard Hearted Hannah", and later it was "As Time Goes By". GAILLA SAPPHIRE returned again and sang "I'm In Love With A Wonderful Guy". WILSON RAISER, who used to come to my OPEN MIC MONDAYS at VERMONT in LA, but tells us he moved to the desert on December 15th, his song for the night was "Maybe This Time" and got a huge ovation from the audience. We also had CALISTA CARRADINE come in, she is a local singer who didn't sing but did bring a wonderful singer named DUCHESS SYLVIA who got a lot of applause for her performance of "Smile", she had an accent but I forgot to ask, maybe Russian? And we had MARCIA HARP with two great songs, "What I Did For Love" and got the whole place to join in, then later she did a beautiful "How Deep Is The Ocean". And we had JASON HULL come in early so we got to hear him doing "That's What Friends Are For" and later "Love Is Forever". And last up we had another new singer who moved here recently, GINO DERMODY who sang and played piano for both "Boy With The Bugle" and I forgot to write down his second song, darn. Then almost at the end of the show we had two singers come in but just one sang, GERALD NORIEGA who sang "Some Enchanted Evening". Joel said they are both in the upcoming COD production of PHANTOM OF THE OPERA. So that was it. Even with the rain we got a big crowd and lots of singers so be sure to make reservations. We hope to see you there this Saturday. Until 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.  
 

Very good turnout for GERALD COLUCCI on Sunday, but this Sunday be sure to get there by 1 pm, or even a bit earlier, because we expect a full house for ROSE MALLETT so we will be having everyone sit as they buy tickets rather than waiting until 1:30 pm.

SPECIAL REPEAT PERFORMANCE:
NOTE: FOR THIS SHOW ONLY...
DOORS OPENING & OPEN SEATING

PLEASE DO NOT SAVE SEATS! 
   
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.

By expecting great things to happen, you will see opportunities for 
making great things happen, whatever comes your way.
