Dear Readers:  
Hey did you hear the news? The Sunday Cabaret Series at Arthur Newman Theater received 15 nominations for DESERT THEATRE LEAGUE AWARDS! Check out the list of all nominations HERE
   
WHAT HAPPENED AT AJ'S LAST SATURDAY:
Whoever said it slows down in the summer wasn't at AJ's last Saturday. It was a really great audience plus we had a total of 18 wonderful guest singers. I got us started off with "Where Or When" with our fabulous PATRICK KARST on baby grand, then we gave him a break while RICHARD BONO took over playing for POUPEE with "I'm Gonna Live Till I Die", and it happens the will be doing the whole night there this Friday so please drop in and see them and they are know for having some singing friends come by too, maybe that's you? Then we had that talented redhead BARBARA FRANTZ who sang "Teach Me Tonight" and "Love Potion #9", after her it was LORETTA SIANI with a terrific "Stormy Weather" and by special request "Old Man River", and back from vacation with husband RJ was SHARON SILLS who did "Stepping Out" and "Come In From The Rain", by the way, Sharon has a special gig this Friday at AQUA AT THE RIVER, and she will also be the Tuesday night entertainment at AJ's starting in October. We also had ALAN JON there to sing "Come To Me" and "Miriah" then we had DOUG GRAHAM with the beautiful "Color Of The Wind" as well as "If Ever I Would Leave You", and the always outstanding JEROME ELLIOTT was there with his songs "How Do You Keep The Music Playing" and "Why Do People Fall In Love", PAT MCCANN was there too, she brought us "That Old Feeling" and "Baby Won't You Please Come Home", then NOMI LAMBERTSON sang "Losing My Mind" and "Summertime". It was also so nice to have JOEL & CLAUDIA SUSSMAN here for the weekend and to hear her sing "PS, I Love You" or Palm Springs as she sang it, and also "So In Love" ala Bossa Nova, they will be back here again this weekend too. PATTI GALLAGHER was next and her songs were "It Had To Be You" and "Someone To Watch Over Me" and someone who came to see our show a while back returned just so he could sing a KENNY CHESNEY song "Me And You" for his love on their one year anniversary, which is not so unusually as we get a lot of birthday and anniversary parties. We also had VV MARTIN there with "If They Could See Me Now", and LARRY DOOLEY with "I'm Glad I'm Not Young Anymore", and he brought TOM MICHAEL who is from Boston but recently bought a PS home and came to sing "This Nearly Was Mine", Tom is a magnificent singer and promised we will be seeing more of him, we also had JB there with his song "A Time For Us", and DAVID BARMORE returned again and sang "Cat In The Cradle", plus the always amazing JASON HULL joined us with "Feels Like Home" and "The Gift Of Love".  
 
So if you weren't there that is what you missed but you won't want to miss this Saturday's show when once again we will have the fabulous PATRICK KARST back on the baby grand.
 
PATRICK KARST with CHARO
So please make reservations and come out to see and hear the show, it's always a great time! 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! 
 
Also, our first round through the singer's sign up list is usually from 7:30 to around 9 PM, so even if you are somewhere else you can still drop in for the second round "Late Show" and have a drink with happy hour from 9 PM to closing. 
 
And we get talented new singers all the time and 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.  

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.  
 


On Sunday SYDNEY WEISMAN put on a hit show for us and had a big standing ovation for "Who Put The Chutzpah in Broadway" and this Sunday is going to be another hit!

This Sunday is:
 
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.

YOU HAVE TODAY!       
 
Don't waste time in idleness, but don't race ahead of your life either. Let life come in its own pace and time. Going fast just for the sake of going fast is a waste of energy.
Rushing through each moment mostly gives you a big helping of anxiety. Take the time to live, to enjoy, to think, to focus, and discover how much more fulfilled life feels. 

Prepare yourself well, but don't borrow problems from the future. Worrying about tomorrow is not a good use of today. You are perfectly capable of dealing with whatever arises. 
There is no need to rush, no need to panic. Slow down a bit. Life has its own rhythm and rhyme. You Have Today. A new day to experience, as all its colors and treasures unfold
