all the Jewish composers from Broadway. As someone at Sundays
show mention, "everyone but Cole Porter".  Joining Amy on piano
will be everybody's favorite pianist, JOEL BAKER.

DEAR READERS:  
  
WHAT HAPPENED AT AJ'S LAST SATURDAY:
Oh, what a night... some amazing singers, nothing new there, but aside from a party of 14 in the bar, the audience was pretty quiet and attentive. In fact, half of that party of 14 were quiet and trying to watch the show, but all it took was 3 or 4 who got loud, probably after too many cocktails, and spoiled it for their friends. The good news is a couple were singers and said they will be coming back to sit in the audience, sing, and be quiet. Anyway, after WAYNE ABRAVANEL sang "Night And Day" and I sang "Our Love Is Here To Stay,  we enjoyed all our singers including SHARON SILLS, who put on such a tremendous show on Sunday, but this night she sang "Love Potion #9" and "Once Upon A Time". FRANCESCA AMARI spent one of her few nights off with husband Dan, having dinner and singing "Where To Boys Are" and "Delta Dawn". LINDSAY OUELLETTE gave us "You don't Know Me" and "Lucky Day". LORETTA SIANI, whose Sunday show is getting close on June 12th, sang "Rock A Bye Your Baby" and "Over The Rainbow". RAFE CORRELL did his fabulous "Save The Last Dance For Me" and "September Song". JEAN SORF joined us to sing "I've Got You Under My Skin" with Rafe on Maraca's, and took us on a hayride with"My Foolish Heart". BETH FORMELOZA got cheers for her "Saving All My Love For You" and later sang "The Power Of Love". FERDIE whose been making a lot of fans lately sang "I Wish You Love" and "Who Can I Turn To". NOMI LAMBERTSON sang for us "Summertime" and "Bewitched Bothered and Bewildered. Next it was TERRY GALLAGHER, her Sunday show will not be until October 9th, sang "God Bless The Child" and "Sister". It was great to have JASON HULL there earlier than usual, and to hear him singing "Happy Birthday Heartache" and "The Way". ROY PROVANCE only did one song, "We Small Hours Of The Morning" as did TONY DiSiena with "My Funny Valentine", JIM with "What Are You Doing The Rest Of Your Life" and VICKI KNIGHT gave us "Cabaret". And MICHAEL SCOTT BROOKS also came by and sang "All Of Me" then "Danny Boy". And there was just enough time for me to sing "Old Friend" and Wayne with "I'll Never Fall In Love Again", and by the way, his Sunday show will be June 19th.

Remember about a month ago I had to go to Eisenhower because my left knew went out and I could not stand on it? The day before it was just sore... well guess what? It is sore again! I put on the knee brace they gave last time and I am hoping that I don't wake up tomorrow not being able to stand on it again!!

But I should be fine by next Saturday, so come out and see what everyone is calling the best night to see the most singers in the Desert, all doing it LIVE!

As a reminder, reservations are a good idea.... especially if you want a table and want to have dinner or bar menu. See you there?  


PLEASE 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.

RECIPE OF THE WEEK
  
BAKED 'FRIED' CHICKEN
We go out for burgers a lot. Here's something different that you can make at home so easy and fast. 

INGREDIENTS:
6 slices bacon
1 lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 large onion, chopped (1 cup)
1/4 cup ketchup
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (4 oz)
1/2 cup Bisquick mix
1 cup milk
2 eggs

DIRECTIONS:

Heat oven to 400F. Spray 9-inch glass pie plate with cooking spray. In 10-inch skillet, cook bacon over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, turning once, until crisp; drain on paper towels. Crumble bacon; set aside.

In same skillet, cook beef, pepper and onion over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until beef is thoroughly cooked; drain. Stir in ketchup. Spread in pie plate; sprinkle with cheese and bacon.

In medium bowl, stir remaining ingredients with wire whisk or fork until blended. Pour into pie plate.
