DEAR READERS:
I just returned from a very nice evening with MARCIA HARP over at ACE HOTEL in Palm Springs where every Monday night BELLA DA BALL hosts bingo in the KINGS HIGHWAY RESTAURANT. What fun! Great food! And a full house of people from locals to people from out of state, and even some foreign countries. Okay, it's not high stakes bingo, nor are the prizes more than a dessert or movie tickets, but none the less you find yourself in competitive mode from the first number to the final yell of 'BINGO', and can't wait to play the next game. If you have not been, do go soon. Reservation are recommended as we did not and barely snagged the last table. And be ready to have a good time!  
 
CABARET ON THE GREEN AT AJ'S LAST SATURDAY:
It was another night of talent, special guests, and surprises, and it was a full house including the bar area where everyone was watching and listening, not even one talker. We started with JOEL BAKER, who will be with us again for the rest of the month, singing "Johnny One Note", then me with "Anything Goes" will help from the audience on the anything goes part. Then it was on to RON COHN and the first of his songs "Row, Row, Row" with help once again from the audience, then he later sang "The Hut Sut Song". He was followed by JEROME ELLIOT and a nice medley of "Change Partners" and "It Only Happens When I Dance With You", and "Stepping Out With My Baby", and later "It Feels Like Home". After Jerome we had LINDA KOSUT, who is a well-known performer from the San Francisco Area, singing "Am I In Another World", and later "Hazel". Patti Gallagher sang a lively "Zippa Dee Do Dah", and also "My Funny Valentine". ALLEN JENSEN is becoming one of our regulars as well as another audience favorite, with his "Fifty Percent", and "Corner Of The Sky". With the same name just spelled different, was ALAN JON doing "Never, Never, Never" and "Lover Come To Me" with much applause. Always a hit, DOUG GRAHAM sang "Romantic Notions", and my special request from ALICE, who is a regular in the bar area, he sang "Bring Him Home". PAT MCCANN, who is always a crowd pleaser, was there with "Here's That Rain Day", and "Too Marvelous For Words". "FRED HARDIN is becoming a regular too and has a bunch of fans for his enthusiasm with his songs and tonight they were "I Can't Stop Loving You", and "Love Letters In The Sand". Then from Chicago we had our CABARET ON SUNDAYS stars, BECKIE MENZIE & TOM MICHAEL with Beckie on piano and both singing, "McCarther Park" and "Elenore Rigby" with "Jo-Jo". Then one of their friends  
 from Chicago who now lives here, JUDY RICE, did a brilliant job on "Broadway Baby". Also there to sing was Beckie husband, IRWIN BERKOWITZ who sang "Ain't That A Kick In The Head". ART BRIGMAN came for dinner and to sing "For Once In My Life" which I saw a few tears shed for the story that went along with it. Art also gave a very nice speech how he thinks our show is the best group of talent anywhere which was super nice of him. I also want to ask you all to keep Art in your thoughts this week as he will be going in for surgery on Thursday and will be in the hospital for 5 days. We wish him a speedy recovery so he can come back and sing soon. We also got to enjoy ROSANNE HOPKINS singing "Cabaret" and "I Get A Kick Out Of You". Plus TONY DESIENA also sang "My Funny Valentine". And I was just thinking earlier that we have not seen JASON HULL lately, and he showed up  
later in the night to sing "It's You Babe", and "Run Away With Me". And that was our show. We hope to see you there this Saturday. 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.  
 

Last Sunday BECKIE MENZIE & TOM MICHAEL had a full house and got a standing ovation for their
outstanding "That 60's Show". Hopefully we can have them back again next season. For this Sunday we
have a 2 time McCallum Open Call winner:
GERALD COLUCCI, so come and see him in
"The Great Italian-American Songbook"

The Winter Season Brochure:
THIS SUNDAY:  
 
SPECIAL REPEAT PERFORMANCE:
   
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.
