WHAT HAPPENED AT AJ'S ON SATURDAY:
Another exceptional night for singers and a nice size audience too. We started the first round doing two songs then continued with one song for the singers who stayed for another two rounds, beginning with MAX MITCHELL with "Be A Clown", If You Could See Her Through My Eyes", & "I Can't Get Started", then we had BETH FORMELOZA doing "Imagination", "When The Sun comes Out", "I'll Never Stop Loving You", & "Two Different Worlds", FERDIE FORMELOZA sang "When Somebody Loves You", "I Wish You Love", "It's Impossible", & "Who Can I Turn To", then LARRY HARRIS singing "More", "Sunrise, Sunset" dedicated to his two daughters visiting from Wisconsin, "For Once In My Life" then MARGE HARRIS did "Easter Parade", "Yellow Bird" and together they a duet "Something Stupid", FRANCESCA AMARI returned again this week with DANNY BOY from "The Devils Ride" and she sang "Fly Me To The Moon", "What I Did For Love", & "Super Star", also last week I left out she also sang "I Dreamed A Dream", Francesca was there to see NICOLE DILLENBERG who sang "You Say The Sweetest Things", "Yes To You", "Untouchable", & "I'm Just Wild About Harry", all of them from her incredible show and tribute to ALICE FAYE that she wowed the audience with on Sunday at ARTHUR NEWMAN THEATER. We also go a visit from MIKOLE KARR who plays at AJ's on both Tuessdays with a trio and Wednesdays with special guest singers, doing classic jazz & more, so he gave us "Black Bird Bye Bye" & "I Can't Give You Anything But Love", and we had time for TONY too, doing "God Bless The Child" & "My Funny Valentine" to finish off the night.
I hope we'll see you there this Saturday as well as all our friends and singers who we used to see at Blame. Come on out and have dinner, drinks, and see the show. It really is like no other night of entertainment anywhere - and no cover too.
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.
HEY LOOK... NEW POSTCARDS
I can design some for you too!
Last week NICOLE DILLENBERG put on one of the best shows you'd ever want to see - especially if you are
an Alice Faye fan like me. This week we are glad to have the return of a young man who did his show for us four years ago and really gained a lot of fans who have been asking for his return. His name is JORDAN MILLER and his show is "The Broadway Leading Man". Joining him will be CHARLIE CREASY on piano. So come on over to the Arthur Newman Theater for a great show on Sunday.

WHAT'S GOING ON AT
HERE'S A TEASER FROM LAST YEAR'S PARTY:
* * *
Attract what you expect,
Reflect what you desire,
Become what you respect,
Mirror what you admire.
Look back at what you did yesterday and ask yourself this
question. What really worked, and what didn't?
The way to become more effective is to learn. The way to
learn is to take the time to look at what actually happened.
You don't need some celebrated guru to teach you how to
live better. You just need to learn from what you've done.
Instead of getting frustrated about your failures, learn from them. Instead of getting complacent about your successes, learn from them as well.
Learn what helps you, what holds you back, what makes you
more effective, and what slows you down.
In everything is a great opportunity to learn if you just simply decide to do so. Learn from it all, and make each day better than the one before! :)

BOOKS ON BROADWAY BY MEL ATKEY
"My goodness, it is brilliant." - Koop Kooper, host, - "Cocktail Nation," Sydney, Australia
"Laura Ainsworth has not only met the incredible standard set by her debut recording but surpassed it..." - Eric Harabadian, Jazz Inside
"Ainsworth segues in and out of moody ladies in love, like those in a Barbara Stanwyck film festival...Whether hilarious or heartfelt, Ainsworth packs a pistol & the goods & should make waves with this new release." - John Hoglund, Cabaret Scenes
"Reminiscent of those classic Verve, Capitol or Columbia albums of the 1950's, but equally, it is so vintage 2013, you just need to grab a copy and listen." - Richard Irvine, 87.7-FM
"Laura Ainsworth is an exceptional singer, full of grace and color in her interpretations. Her ability to express the elements of the most classic jazz is incomparable; she is able to subtly display sensuality, darkness, romanticism, naughtiness, and feeling. 'Necessary Evil' is a smart & brilliant contribution to the world jazz scene" - Oscar Montagut, WorldMusicReport
"Delightful...Snazzy and jazzy...Charming and genuine... Recalls big band clubs in many a black-and-white film airing on TCM...Magically transporting to an era far gone..."
- Kevin Thomas, Dallas Voice
"As sweet-voiced as a meadowlark crossed with a hummingbird...The kind of gig Mae West would uncork champagne to and then sit back in brocade and rhinestones...
