DEAR READERS
 
CABARET ON THE GREEN AT AJ'S LAST SATURDAY:
Oh boy! Another incredible night! We ended up with 11 singers plus JULIE SAX sitting in with her saxophone with some singers during their songs. And we also had our special guest pianist from Los Angeles, RICHARD BERENT. I started of with "Just One Of Those Things", and later did "Love Me Or Leave Me", and ended the night with "Old Friend". Our  first guest singer was ALAN JON, fresh from yet another vacation... and singing "Come To Me", and later "I Wish You Love". After Alan we had BARBARA FRANTZ who rocked it with Julie on sax for "Don't It Make My Brown Eyes Blue", later it was "Guilty". And JOHN SPINKS joined us to sing "Tell My Father", and a wonderful song called "It Goes Like It Goes". Then our special featured singer for the night was our performer for the Cabaret On Sunday Series, JAN ABRAM and her songs were "It Had To Be You" with an audience sing-a-long for the second chorus, and her other song was a beautiful rendition of "Wind Beneath My Wings" that got some thunderous applause. Next we had CLAUDIA SUSSMAN with the best song I've heard her do before, "Losing My Mind", and a great song I've loved since I was a kid "I'm Always Chasing Rainbows". Also there to sing was our 'story teller' with the amazing voice, RUTHANN DE LA VEGA doing a very rarely heard "Tell Him That It's Snowing", then later "I Could Have Told You". JB came to sing "Candle On The Water" also with huge applause, and his other song was "I Dreamed A Dream". After him we had the always fabulous PAT MCCANN doing "Nice And Easy", and then she sang ''Nature Boy". V.V. MARTIN did a great job with her "Maybe This Time", and also sang the SALLY FIELDS SONG "If You Love Me, Really Love Me". TONY DESIENA took time out of his work for "God Bless The Child" with Julie, and "My Funny Valentine".  And coming in after an event, the always a big hit MARCIA HARP came over to sing "The Best Thing You've Ever Done" and also "What I Did For Love". With a really nice turn out as far as audience, I asked how many were people back for the season and was very surprised there were none, so I can only imagine how nice it will be when everyone is back in town, maybe this week? One person who will be back this week is JOEL BAKER, so come out and sing or just come for the show because at CABARET ON THE GREEN OPEN MIC we always do it LIVE!     
 
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.  
 

We had a really great turn out for last week's show starring JAN ABRAMS and did the audience love it? Yes they did! It was a special moment towards the end when Jan asked for the house lights to come on and for all the Veteran's to stand and I counted around 15 including LINDSAY OUELLETTE and PHIL. This week we have someone who will be doing his 8th show for this series. RON COHN is always a lot of fun and brings some of the best of both Standards and some rare gems you'll love. Joining him will be DENIS MOREEN on piano. Come out and enjoy a live show this Sunday.

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.
