WHAT HAPPENED AT AJ'S LAST SATURDAY: 
 
When I left may house last Saturday I thought, is anybody going to be there in this 115 degree heat? YES! The certainly were. It was an excellent night for both audience turn out and great singers. JOEL BAKER started us out with "Summer Afternoon", and I came out with "Our Love Is Here To Stay". We ended up with 14 guest singers with some staying to do a 2nd and even 3rd song, starting with LARRY DOOLEY and "Scotch And Soda", "Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You", and "Like Someone In Love", then LORETTA SIANI doing "Help Me Make It Through The Night", "Crazy", and "Dancing On The Ceiling" - by ROGERS & HART (an inside joke if you were there), then JB sang "I'm In Love With A Wonderful Guy" then called his wonderful guy, NATHAN up to the mic - and proposed marriage, later he sang "I Dreamed A Dream", next was GEORGE LOUIS with "Come Dance With Me", and "Because Your Mine", and RAFE CORELL did "Fly Me To The Moon", and "Save The Last Dance For Me", LINDSAY OUELLETTE sang "Time After Time" with "Just In Time", and "Someone To Watch Over Me", JEAN SORF did a medley using "My Man", Just My Bill", and Can't Help Loving That Man Of Mine", and later did "I've Got You Under My Skin", DOUG GRAHAM followed with "Life I Never Led", "If Ever I Would Leave You" and stayed and sang "Body and Soul", next we had BRAD SEIPLE singing "Send In The Clowns", then MICHAEL SCOTT BROOKS with "The Nearness Of You", and "All The Things You Are To Me", PHILLIP STEELE did "The Saga Of Jenny", and "Almost Blue", and "September Song", new singer and former DEAN MARTIN GOLD DIGGER, PEG GOLH sang "a medley with "I'm Not At All In Love" with "This Can't Be Love", and "When You're Young At Heart", she had some great stories she shared and everyone loved her, I hope she becomes a regular as she fits right in with all of our very talented singers, the we had BARBARA FRANTZ doing one of the audience's favorite's "Love Potion Number Nine", "I Don't Stand A Ghost Of A Chance", and "Guilty", with also had TONY sing "When I Fall In Love" for the newly engaged couple. And our new fans FLO & SHIRLEY returned again this week, it is great to see them again, as well as our other friends in the audience. Just a reminder that Joel is playing for MICHAEL HOLMES show on Saturday instead of Sunday, so we are very fortunate to have DENIS MOREEN joining us on piano. Denis is great at playing any style, reads music, transposes, and knows a lot of songs without music as well, but bring yours just in case or have a second choice ready.  
 
We hope to see you there soon, and 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, and reservations for the dinning room are highly advised. Also, I would like to say thank you to everyone for your support of live music everywhere in the desert. It's one of the things we're most noted for and it just gets bigger and better. 
 
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 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.

COOL CABARET, JAZZ & STANDARDS! 



THE HIGHEST WISDOM...

  
When interacting with others, keep this in mind: they are people too, with their families, hopes, feelings and challenges.

For your own sake and for the sake of everyone else, go out of your way, and do all you can, to be kind and considerate. 

When you're not met with kindness, offer your own in return. Instead of trying to get the last word, seek to give the first smile.

You may have every reason to be angry, disappointed, impatient, and sarcastic, yet kindness is almost always the best choice. :)
