Dear Readers:   

OSCAR'S UPDATE:  
Well, there may be a second night but may not be at Oscar's.  
   
WHAT HAPPENED AT AJ'S LAST SATURDAY: 
WOW!!! JOEL BAKER was back as started the incredible night of talent off with "April Showers", then I sang "Love Me Or Leave", followed by FRED MILLER with "How Deep Is The Ocean", then on to a brand new singer named JESSICA INSERRA, who Joel's DON meet at a cocktail party, she hails from NYC where she performed on Broadway, then moved to LA and recently bought a place here in the desert so she is sure to return, she sang "Take Me Or Leave Me" from RENT, and later sang "I'm Going Back" from BELLS ARE RINGING, she is really good so thanks Don, and it was also Don's birthday so we sang Happy Birthday and got him a piece of cake with one candle, and next it was LORETTA SIANI with "I'm In The Mood For Love", but later made the audience go crazy with applause and cheers for her "Old Man River", and we had BARBARA FRANTZ doing "Strange" and "Baby It's You" with SHARON SILLS singing some back up and after sang her own songs, "Great Balls Of Fire" which will be in her show "SONGS MY MOTHER HATED" she'll be doing this Sunday at ARTHUR NEWMAN THEATER and her other song later was "Girl Crush", then we had RAFE CORRELL doing "Love For Sale" and "All My Tomorrows", and MICHAEL SANDERS returned to sing with us "You Go To My Head" and "But Beautiful", we also had a 2nd Miller, TOM MILLER, who sang I'm Gonna Live Till I Die" and later "Rock-A-Bye Your Baby", thanks for joining us Tom and bringing your friends for dinner, next was LARRY DOOLEY who had his Elvis going on with "Blue Suede Shoes", but later he did "There's No You", our next singer was ART BRIGMAN who did "My Way" and later "For Once In My Life", after him we had his friend RUTH ANN DELAVEGA who also moved her recently, she is great too, and sang "I Could Have Told You", and a really great song called "When The Wind Was Green", and we had TERRY GALLAGHER who sang "Cabaret", which she also did in her fabulous show the new day at ARTHUR NEWMAN THEATER, we also had JB there who sang "Wind Beneath My Wings" which the audience LOVED, and we had another new singer and our 3rd Miller for the night, WALLY MILLER singing "Stand By Me", and DONNY TEETERS was back again with his songs "At Last" and "That's All", then we had the wonderful ROSE MALLETT come to sing a preview of "What Ever Lola Wants" from her new show "SONGS OF SARAH", the life and music of SARAH VAUGHN that she'll be doing on Sunday, April 29th at where else, ARTHUR NEWMAN THEATER, plus we got to hear our server JIM MEHOSE sing "Send In The Clowns" and our host, TONY DISIENA doing "God Bless The Child". So that was it for yet another terrific night of CABARET ON THE GREEN OPEN MIC! If you have not been to see these shows, you are really missing out! So make those reservations now and we'll see you next Saturday, and if you are a singer be sure to sign up at 6:30 with the show beginning at 7:30 pm. 
       
HERE'S A GOOD TIP: Reservations are a good idea for dinning in the showroom. But if you get the answering machine do not leave a reservation on it. But call after 5 PM and press '1' at the end of the message and it will transfer to the bar where it will be answered by a real person who will take your reservations. DO NOT LEAVE RESERVATIONS ON THE ANSWERING MACHINE! 
 
Also, our first round through the singer's 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. 
 
And we get talented new singers all the time and 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.  

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.  
 

Hey! JOEL BAKER is back on the piano this Saturday!

THIS SUNDAYS SHOW IS ANOTHER 
DO NOT MISS IT SHOW!

TER GALLAGHER did such a great job on her show last Sunday with rave reviews from the audience as they left, but we could use more people. She had a 4 piece band and two dancers who helped out on a few numbers, and all the expenses are paid by the performers and their portion of the door certainly didn't cover it. So please come out and show your support for this very unique series of outstanding shows that the desert should be flocking to. 
 
This week we have the one and only SHARON SILLS! She's funny, and extremely talented with a lot of fans, so let's fill the theater. She will also have a 3 piece band. Please come out and show your support of live performances. 
THEN ON SUNDAY, APRIL 29, 2018
 
 
PS:  
COULD IT BE THAT THERE COULD BE ONE EXTRA BONUS SHOW ON SUNDAY, MAY 6, 2018?? STARRING ANOTHER ONE OF THE DESERT'S FAVORITE DIVA'S??

APRIL 29, 2018   


NEXT SHOW IS:  
DO YOU REMEMBER THURSDAY NIGHTS IN THE  
TEN20 LOUNGE AT THE BEAUTIFUL BEL AGE HOTEL  
IN WEST HOLLYWOOD?

IT SEEMS LIKE ONLY YESTERDAY BUT IT WAS REALLY AROUND 2003 - 2006. THE NIGHT STARTED WITH "THE GUEST STARS SHOWCASE" AND 4 PERFORMERS DOING A SHORT SET AROUND 15 MINUTES AND 3 TO 4 SONGS. RON SNYDER, THE HOUSE PIANIST, PLAYED FOR THEM AND AFTER A SHORT BREAK WE CONTINUED THE NIGHT WITH OPEN MIC. IT REALLY WAS A FABULOUS ROOM WITH GREAT FOOD, GORGEOUS BABY GRAND, AND THAT VIEW! 

I HAD SO MANY DIGITAL PHOTOS FROM THOSE NIGHTS BUT LOST THEM WHEN MY COMPUTER DIED ABOUT 4 YEARS AGO. BUT I RECENTLY FOUND THE PAPTER PROGRAM I PUT TOGETHER FROM THE VERY LAST NIGHT THERE AFTER THE HOTEL WAS SOLD, IT'S NOW CALLED LONDON WEST. ANYWAY, I COMPILED A LIST OF ALL 383 GUEST STARS FROM THE 140 SHOWS ON A SPECIAL WEB PAGE IN CASE ANYONE WANTS TO SEE ALL THE INCREDIBLE SINGERS WHO CAME TO BE PART OF IT. I ALSO HAVE LOTS OF OLD "MINI - DVD'S" TAKEN OF A LOT OF THE SHOWS. ONCE I LEARN HOW TO TRANSFER THEM TO THE WEB I WILL POST THEM FOR YOU TO SEE.

BE WELL... STAY WELL! 
 
One of the most essential prerequisites for strong immune system is your intestinal health and digestive competence. Your gastrointestinal micro-biom affects every aspect of your health: skin condition, weight, cholesterol, even your mood. If your gut walls are damaged (leaky), the absorption of essential nutrients will be impaired, and your defense system becomes fragile, making you vulnerable to frequent colds and allergies.

Healthy humans carry about 1,800 different species of intestinal bacteria in their gut. Yogurt and all fermented foods contain lots of beneficial bacteria, which help you to digest and assimilate foods you eat, and fight the growth of harmful bacteria. Good bacteria can be depleted from consuming too many sweets and antibiotics, as well. Yes, there are situations where antibiotics are needed, but most of the times, by adding a proper good bacteria to your food, the antibiotics can be avoided altogether.

Your body has to be constantly cleansed from harmful substances that accumulate in cell proliferation process, like free radicals, which are mostly created by stress and physical exertion. Vitamin C, magnesium, potassium, poly-phenol, etc etc are helpful in  elimination of those bad bio-toxins.

Scientists agree that the best way to strengthen your immune system is by proper hydration, wholesome nutrition, good sleeping patterns, positive outlook on life, and regular physical activity (swimming, walking, singing, gardening, etc).

Be well and stay well, because you deserve it! :)
