WHAT HAPPENED AT AJ'S LAST SATURDAY: 
 
There were so many events and shows last Saturday night that we weren't expecting a very good turnout. But we still ended up with a large amount of both audience and all singers who stayed got to do 2 and even 3 songs. JOEL BAKER sang "Smiles", & "Some Of These Days", and I did "I Get A Kick Out Of You", & "Old Friend", then we had our guest singers including JB doing "Country Road", & "Over The Rainbow", GEORGE LOUIS and "No Arms Can Ever Hold Me", & "I'm  Yours", LORETTA SIANI with "Angel Eyes", "One For My Baby", & "It Could Happen To You", then RAFE CORRELL doing "Don't It Make My Brown Eyes Blue", "All My Myself", & "Me And My Shadow", next was BETH FORMELOZA with "Make Believe It's Our First Time", "Rainy Days And Mondays", & "My Man" in both Filipino and English, then it was FERDIE FORMELOZA, who is gotten really good by the way, with "Love Story Theme", "Misty", & "Who Can I Turn To", BARBARA FRANTZ gave us "If I Could Hear No Music", "Good Morning Heartache", & "Ordinary People", it was nice to have SYDNEY WEISMAN back, singing "It's Not Easy Being Green", "Adelaide's Lament", & "Tomorrow Night", she was with two friends and husband, DAVID HAMLIN, who by the way, has a wonderful mystery novel out you should check out called "WINTER IN CHICAGO", we also had TONY the host singing "When I Fall In Love", and server JIM with "Breaking Up Is Hard To Do", we also had two new singers, one is a friend of MICHAEL HOLMES from back in Grand Rapids who now lives in the desert named EILLEN BERTCH who was just outstanding with her "Cabaret", & "Memories", , and also visiting from back East, CAMERON FADJO who met Joel back when he played a summer for Michael Holmes in Ogonguit, who is also very talented and sang "I Concentrate On You", & "What Is This Thing Called Love", & "Cry Me A River". Of special note in our audience we had PATRICK HENRY with a friend, and our two friends who I mentioned went back to Seattle last week, RICHARD & CHRISTIAN, they sent over two of their friends who I think will return soon, also two wonderful ladies, CINDY & LAURA from Indian Wells who came for dinner sitting right up front who stayed to the end to tell us how marvelous they thought the show and talent was and promised to be back, with friends. And Joel and I would like to say thanks so much to whomever left the VERY generous bill in the "Appreciation Jar". So as you can see, we had a perfect evening and look forward to seeing YOU there this Saturday night.

COOL CABARET, JAZZ & STANDARDS! 



LET IT FLOW...

  
Don't try too hard, in fact, don't try at all. For when you see yourself as trying, you've already assumed you might fail.  

Life never has to be a hard trying experience. It is much better is to see yourself as achieving and making a difference. 
 
Effective effort is a joy that makes you feel good about yourself. After all, you've changed the world for the better.  
 
When you enjoy your task, you'll be more effective at anything you do. Stop trying so hard and just let it flow. :)
