LES NEW PIC 

 


DEAR READERS:    
 
Back on June 29th, I had the pleasure of having JANE KINSEY perform her show, The Kinsey Report at Arthur Newman Theater and her director, CLIFFORD BELL came to Palm Springs with her and asked me to be a guest on his CABARABIA Web Show on Global Voice Broadcasting.
And it just came out today and here is a link to watch the live 15 minute interview:
LES ON CLIFFORD BELL'S CABARABIA WEB CAST 
 
WHAT HAPPENED AT  
APPLAUSE WEDNESDAYS LAST WEEK:
Very crowded last week, partly due to a party of around 12 including actress & Palm Springs Walk Of Stars honoree LINDSEY WAGNER and 2 singers in the group. We started off by coincidence with LINDSAY OUELLETTE who sang "Moon River" & "Cry Me A River", then COURT GRAVES with "You Only Live Twice" & "Got A Lot Of Living To Do", followed by BETH FORMELOZA and "Someone Like You" & "This Is My Song" then it was FERDIE FORMELOZA with "For Once In My Life" & "You Were Always On My Mind". We haven't see JUDI RUSSO for some time so it was a treat to have her there singing "Stars And The Moon" & "Somethings Got To Give", DOUG GRAHAM gave us some Broadway with "When I Look In Your Eyes" & "On A Clear Day" and LU RECTOR, who'll be leaving soon with Judi to St. Louis Cabaret Conference, sang "You Can Always Count On Me" & a fabulous "More Than You Know". JEROME ELLIOTT, who has a big show coming up this Sunday at Arthur Newman Theater, gave us "A Man Doesn't Come In A Glass" from another one of his upcoming shows, and "Body And Soul" which he does so well. RAFE CORRELL got us moving with "Save The Last Dance For Me" & later "Two For The Road" and then it was a new singer who is a local and sings with the Gay Men's chorus, SKIP LANG who did his own take on "Frank Mills" that was quite funny. Next we had JEAN SORF doing "It's Impossible" and "Love Look Away" from FLOWER DRUM SONG, and one of the singers in the large party, newcomer JIM KENNEDY did a great job of "Maybe This Time". Another one of your married couples was next, MARGIE GRENNAN doing "What Do You Get When You Fall In Love" & a really nice "Over The Rainbow" then it was NOEL GRENNAN singing "After The Lovin'". KRISTIN MOLINA was another newcomer from that large party, who gave us "There Are Worse Things I Could Do" from GREASE, and TANYA NUNEZ did "When The World Was Young" my JOHNNY MERCER & "All The Things You Are" and BRIANNA FINNELL who just finished a role in SEUSSICAL THE MUSICAL at Palm Canyon Theater sang a classical piece called "Les Berceaux" & that classic standard "At Last". KEISHA D, fresh from her hit show the previous Sunday came by and sang "Can't Help Loving That Man" & then it was JASON HULL singing "If We Hold On Together" & "I Think I'll Write A Song". So we had a total of 19 singers plus Joel and I and it was a great night. I actually brought my video camera and got it all and transferred it to a DVD but I have no idea how to get it from there to YouTube - along with literally 100's of other songs by various singers at my various nights at various venues over the years - most are on VHS & Mini-DV tapes. Some day I will find time to learn how to put them on my own YouTube Channel. And some day I'll win the lottery too.  So we hope to see you this week. Until then.  
      
Be sure to try our very own DRINK SPECIAL - the APPLAUSE-ATINI. It's Cherry infused vodka with Orange juice and Cranberry.  
 
 
 
WHAT HAPPENED AT AJ'S ON SATURDAY:
Wow, there were so many other things going on around town last Saturday that I didn't think we would have a lot of people but it turned out there was a surprise birthday in the Splash Bar from 4 to 7 PM and many of the people stayed to hear us sing. They stayed in the bar but were very good at giving us all lots of applause after each singer including FRED MILLER doing "Night And Day", "Blue Moon", & "The Very Thought Of You", SHIRLEY COLES came for dinner with a group and gave us "At Last" & "Over The Rainbow", followed by BETH FORMELOZA doing "I May Never Love This Way Again", "You And Me Against The World", & "Memory", then it was FERDIE FORMELOZA to sing "I Wish You Love", "You Were Always On My Mind", & "Who Can I Turn To". Next it was a really good new singer from I want to say San Luis Obispo, named YOSSI CARRON, who came with a friend for dinner and sang the JANE OLIVER rendition of "Some Enchanted Evening", "Birth Of The Blues" & "I Believe", which he said he sings to the inmates at a correction facility he works or volunteers at. BURC LANDER was up next and sang "Love Makes The World Go Round", "Her Face" & "She's My Love", and then one of our special guest singers, MARIA ELENA INFANTINO wowed us all with "Padam, Padam" in French and "Mambo Italiano" in Italian. Her complete so on Sunday at Arthur Newman Theater was a huge hit as well. Up next was PHIL CROSBY JR. to sing "On The Street Where You Live", "I Remember You" & "Lush Life". Back for a second week, ROY PROVENCE, this time he let Joel play for him and he sang "It Might As Well Be Spring" & "I Remember April", he and his wife are new to the desert and I think we'll see more of him now that he's found us. We had another Mr. & Mrs. team with MARGE HARRIS doing "The Night They Invented Champagne" & "Diamonds Are A Girls Best Friend" and LARRY HARRIS did "Strangers In The Night" & together they sang "Yes, I Remember It Well". COURT GRAVES came in and sang "You Only Live Twice", "Unchained Melody" & "Theme From Valley Of The Dolls" - he'll be singing some of these next Friday at The Copa by the way, then we had RAFE CORRELL singing "Sway", with some of the birthday people getting up to dance, & "Someone Like You", TONY came in late for one song doing "I Left My Heart In San Francisco" and there was a party of 4 that came in and it turns out that one couple, a husband and wife named YADIRA & RICARDO were singers so they did "Sabor a Mi" and were really good too. Anyway that was it and we finished right on time. It think there are some other competing shows again next week but come by if you can or come by later if possible and see us. We'll keep the piano light on. Get it? Oh, I almost forgot, JOHN & ART had the piano tuned and boy what a difference, it sounds really terrific. Oh course we should thank DIANE SCHUUR who was there for dinner the previous week with her great ear for music, telling John how out of tune it was. So here is a special video to say thanks, and if you haven't bought her brand new, just released CD: I REMEMBER YOU: With Love To Stan (Getz) And Frank (Sinatra), that contains: "S' Wonderful", "Nice And Easy", "Watch What Happens", I've Got You Under My Skin", "How Insensitive", "Here's That Rainy Day", "I Remember You", "I Get Along Without You Very Well", "Second Time Around", and "For Once In My Life".   Go buy it, it is amazing

The way out of doubt is to do. The way to get beyond
discouragement is with action.

Thoughts have a powerful influence on the way you feel and the way you are, yet deeds are even more powerful.

When you're doing something effective and meaningful, it is difficult to be negative.

When you're making a positive difference, there's no energy left for discouragement.

When you need to get your spirits up, get up and get going! Step away from limiting thoughts, and with a positive action make life happen! :)

SAMPLE OF SONGS VIDEO

"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...
- Mark S. Tucker, AcousticMusic.com
