WHAT HAPPENED AT AJ'S LAST SATURDAY: 

Another SUPER night at AJ's with 22 singers and a fabulous audience. Hard to imagine so many people coming out on a hot & humid night in the desert, but they do! We started of with JOEL BAKER singing "Rhinestone Cowboy" in tribute to GLENN CAMPBELL, then I sang "I Believe In You" from "How To Succeed..." then it was DONNY TEETER, who stayed for the second round to sing two songs: "On A Clear Day", & "I Can't Get You Out Of My Heart", then we had SHARON SILLS back from two weeks away with husband RJ, with "Come Rain Or Come Shine", & "To All The Men I Loved Before", and LORETTA SIANI did "At Long Last Love", & "Every Time We Say Goodbye", followed by RAFE CORRELL doing "A Time For Love", & "How Do You Keep The Music Playing", then BARBARA FRANTZ sang "Baby It's You" with Rafe on Maracas & Sharon on back up, & "An Ordinary Fool", next DEANNE CONTE returned again to sing "Can't Help Loving That Man Of Mine", and then did "If I Loved You" as a beautiful duet with GERALD COLUCCI who also sang "The Great Dreamer", & "O' Solo Mio", ART BRIGMAN from CLUB TRINIDAD sang "For Once In My Life", & "My Way" and gave us all the best compliment saying we put on the best shows and that no where in the Desert can anyone go and see so much talent in one room, and I just have to agree, next it was good to see KAM SISCO back and singing "Just In Time", he was with another singer we don't see often enough, ALLEN JENSEN who sang "Fifty Percent" from "Ballroom", after that we had ALAN JON with "My Favorite Year", & "Pieces Of Dreams", BETH FORMELOZA did a fabulous "New York State Of Mind", & "One Moment In Time", and of course FERDIE FORMELOZA followed, singing "Play Me", & I missed writing down the second song because I was practicing how to pronounce MARIANNA OKNYANSKI, who sang "Mamma" in Italian, & "Under A Paris Sky" in French, EVIE MARIE made her first appearance since having her twins, to sing "Defying Gravity", & "Out Here On My Own", next up was LESLIE TINNARO back from her three sold out shows at CVREP singing "Back To Before" from "Ragtime", & "Home", we also had a team of AJ's incredible performers drop in with friends, first BRYAN MILLER played piano & sang "I Love To See You Smile", and played for partner GILMORE RIZZO who sang "Pepino The Italian Mouse", I highly recommend seeing these guys at AJ's every other Friday - the next time is August 25th, they also brought another singer named DON SAVAGE who sang "I Thought About You", Don is from Arcadia and in town looking to buy a home here, we also had JASON HULL who sang "Come In From The Rain", & "These Are The Days", a new singer named DENNIS HERNANDEZ did a beautiful "On My Own", and keeping with "Les Miserables", BRAD SIEPLE sang the equally beautiful "Bring Him Home". So that makes 22 singers and for the first time we actually went overtime by about 30 minutes. And that was CABARET ON THE GREEN OPEN MIC for Saturday August 12th. I can't wait to see the show next week! How about you? Is that a song cue? Come next week and find out! We also heard from PATRICIA WALKELY that it's LAURIE DEANE's birthday and they will be there with a group to celebrate the occasion. Reservations are a good idea for dinning in the showroom. Also, our first round through this 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. 
 
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.  
 
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.  
 
It is with great sorry to hear of the recent passing of
JULIUS PREITE
 
JULIUS will be remembered and respected by his many friends, fans and peers as a top-notch musician playing multiple instruments and bringing  joy to everyone.
 
Our condolences go out to Sylvia Browning,  
Julie Ann Preite, and Rudy Preite. 
 


Rest In Peace Julius Preite

FORGIVENESS...
  
Forgiveness doesn't mean what happened was acceptable. Forgiveness means you are ready to move beyond the pain. 

Forgiveness is not about what's right or wrong, justified or not. Forgiveness is about freeing yourself to a better future. 

Forgiveness lets you live well, no matter what others may do or fail to do. It fills you with peace and clarity of purpose. 

Rid yourself of painful echoes from the past. Forgive, and turn your life toward the beautiful possibility that is now. :)
