DEAR READERS:   
 
WHAT HAPPENED AT AJ'S LAST SATURDAY:
This week I got there really early and the parking lot was especially crowded so I assumed there was an event in the Club House, and thought 'oh great, no parking for us!'... only to find out they were all in AJ's. By the time we started there were no seats left. Lucky we didn't have a lot of 'late-comers'. WAYNE ABRAVANEL started us off with "Night And Day" and I followed with "The Way You Look Tonight" and our list of 22 singers included: "KEN GREEN "Brother Can You Spare A Dime", "Feeling Groovy". RON COHN "Bennies From Heaven". LORETTA SIANI "The Man I Love", "Can't Help Falling In Love With You". LINDSAY OUELLETTE "The Nearness Of You", "Too Close For Comfort". RAFE CORRELL "Sunday Kind Of Love", "What A Difference A Day Makes". JEAN SORF "Where's That Boy With The Bugle", "Night And Day". DOUG GRAHAM "Disneyland", "Till There Was You". NONI LAMBERTSON "A Very Special Love", "Bewitched, Bothered, And Bewildered". ALAN JON "Who Can I Turn To", "Deep Purple". PAT MCCANN "Like Someone In Love". PATTI GALLAGER "Almost Like Being In Love", "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes". All the way from San Francisco, someone I've not seen in quite a while, the amazing LINDA KOSUT who sang "I Cover The Waterfront". She was with JEROME ELLIOTT "Not A Day Goes By". New singer ELAINE ALAGLUE (sic) "Can't Help Lovin Dat Man". BRAD SIEPLE "Even Now". Returning singer RICHARD HOGUE "Music Of The Night". MARCIA HARP "What I Did For Love". New singer IRENE HYDE "Crazy". MARGE HARRIS "Second Hand Rose". BARBARA FRANTZ "Teach Me Tonight", "I'm Beginning To See The Light". ROSANNE HOPKINS "La Vie En Rose", "Sister". And yet another new singer MICHELE SARNA "Big Spender". We also have a group celebrating a birthday for VICTOR, and another group for CLAY and MARK on their 29th Anniversary. If you have a special event coming up, make reservations for dinner and to see what many, including me, say is the best show in town. WAYNE ABRAVANEL will not be with us this week but from Los Angeles we will once again have RICHARD BERRENT who many of you have sung with in the past and is one of the very best accompanist around so we are very fortunate to get him.

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.
