WHAT HAPPENED AT AJ'S LAST SATURDAY: 

Another busy night with 17 singers total. JOEL BAKER got us started with "Let's Call The Whole Thing Off" and me doing "Embraceable You" and later "Old Friend" and our first special guest singer was EARL MITCHELL returning with "I Have Dreamed" & "I've Got You Under My Skin", then we had ROSANNE HOPKINS and "Just No Time At All" and later "La Vie En Rose", next was BETH FORMELOZA "Hero", and "I Love The Night Life", and FERDIE FORMELOZA with "You Were Always On My Mind" & "The Nearness of You", RAFE CORRELL doing "You Took Advantage Of Me" with "You're Getting To Be A Habit With Me", then later he did "All My Tomorrows", LINDSAY OUELLETTE sang "Too Close For Comfort", & "A Certain Smile", and JEAN SORF singing "As Long As He Needs Me", & "Fools Rush In", followed by LORETTA SIANI with "I Don't Know Why I Just Do", she performed a wonderful show last Thursday at Trilogy with so many of our wonderful singers there to show support, BARBARA FRANTZ was next with "Baby, It's You" with Rafe on Maraca's and Sharon on back up, and "Good Morning Heartache", SHARON SILLS did one song "Cry", and LARRY DOOLEY was back doing "Come In From The Rain" & "But Beautiful", JB came to sing "Bring Him Home", and back after some back to back shows was LESLIE TINNARO to sing 2 showstoppers, "Don't Cry For Me Argentina", & "Think Of Me", visiting from Seattle we had PAM BUCKINGHAM, who knows Joel since elementary school, who sang "Super Star", then DAVE VAN WESS came to sing "Maybe this Time", then coming in from their sold out show "Gypsy's Follies" over at OSCAR'S, was MARCIA HARDY doing "The Best Thing You've Ever Known" and VICKI KNIGHT with our final song of the night "Can't Help Loving That Man Of Mine".  
 
Can I just say that our Saturday night shows bring in the absolute best talent of any where in the desert, maybe anywhere! I am so proud that I am to be a part of  providing a wonderful place for them to sing, with one of the desert's very best pianists, as well as some of the best people come and see us, applaud us, and give such wonderful compliments.     
 
We are looking forward to seeing you next Saturday and tell your friends, it is always a great night for live entertainment at AJ's On The Green!  Joel Baker will be on a working vacation in Seattle for 2 weeks so in his place we have to equally talented DENIS MOREEN to play for us. He can play any style, transpose, and also knows hundreds of songs, but as with any pianist, it is always best when you bring your sheet music, it just makes it better.    
 
Talented new singers are always welcome! Sign up time to sing starts at 6:30 and the show starts at 7:30 pm and goes until 10 pm, and reservations for the dinning room are highly advised. And I've noticed more and more venues are continuing entertainment for the summer, so please go out and show your support and help them keep it up. 
 
RESERVATIONS DINNER ARE HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! DO NOT LEAVE IT ON THE ANSWERING MACHINE... BUT CALL 760-202-1111 DURING BUSINESS HOURS (best after 5 PM a few days before Saturday) AND SPEAKING TO A LIVE PERSON. BE SURE TO GET THEIR NAME TOO, JUST IN CASE.
 
DO NOT LEAVE A MESSAGE ON THEIR 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.  
 

NEXT WEEK AND THE FOLLOWING WEEK,
WE WILL HAVE DENIS MOREEN ON PIANO!

COOL CABARET, JAZZ & STANDARDS! 


 


 
SING FOR BETTER HEALTH...
  
It's been said that spirit can be found between the breath and the sound.  Singing can be a powerful weapon weapon against worry, stressand anxiety. It works on many levels.  

1. On the physical level there is a true sensation of relaxation. Most of us are so used to our daily stress, that we don't even realize how tensed we are. That's where singing comes to rescue. 

2. On the psychological level singing helps us to feel safe. We all worry about something. Singing helps to put those inner anxieties aside and let go of fear of the unknown.
   
3. On spiritual level there is a feeling of connectedness. In this busy world we all feel somewhat lonely. Singing helps to connect our inner-selves with the world around us.  
 
4. And when we fell good on these three levels, something even greater happens: our overall physical health improves, as well. Yes, mind IS over the matter. 
 
 
With the stress and anxieties created by the pace of life today, singing introduces a new level of fitness as to how we feel about ourselves and the world around us.
   
 
Be well, stay well, and sing all your worries away !
