I got to see JEROME ELLIOTT on Sunday in the Desert Ensemble Theater production of Becoming Ava at the Pearl McManus Theater in the Palm Springs Women's Club. I thought it was wonderful and Jerome was great in his role of Conrad, but also the entire cast. All were extremely professional and delivered a very funny and entertaining play. I was really impressed that the role of Carol, played by KATIE PAVAO, only took over the part a week before. You may remember her from Nite Club Confidential, another play I loved. She and her husband Zube recently moved here from Riverside, definitely watch for her in other productions.
SUNDAYS IN SUMMER UPDATE:
OH YIKES! Yet another set back. Seems lighting and sound man DOUG RIDGEWAY has accepted a position at Glendale City College and will be moving so that means we need to find someone to replace him ASAP. I believe Doug will be available to train the right person and they will doing lights and sound for both Sundays In Summer as well as for Desert Theater Works productions which includes their just announced Summer Series with 3 productions lined up for May through November, then on into their regular season for 2104 - 2015. It is a part time position and perfect for someone who just wants to make some additional money on the side from their day job. Also good for someone looking for more experience and possible college credit for an internship. Email me ASAP at firstname.lastname@example.org if you, or someone you know is interested.
CARPOOL FROM LA TO PS OPEN MICS:
DAVID FAIRCHILD has an SUV & could take up to 7 people split the gas to come to Palm Springs to sing at either Cabaret Open Mic. You can reach him at: 310-316-5547.
LAST WEDNESDAY AT BLAME IT ON MIDNIGHT:
Another almost full house last week with JOHN EDWARDS bringing a party of 12 to see the show with some great performances by COURT GRAVES who sang "Witchcraft", "You Dont'Know Me", & "Night & Day", then DONNY TEETERS with "More", Besme Mucho", & "When Sonny Gets Blue", and DOUG GRAHAM singing "Downtown", "My Romance", & "The Impossible Dream", next it was TANYA NUNEZ with "Miss Otis Regrets", and PAT MCCANN is back everybody... doing "Day By Day", "Hey There", & "This Is The End Of A Beautiful Friendship" - so nice to have Pat back, our next singer was RAFE CORRELL and "Guess I'll Hang My Tears Out To Dry", "It Could Happen To You", & "This Is All I Ask", Rafe was worried because Joel was not there to play but told me later he was very happy with our sub ALEX DANSON, and so was I, he played everything we put in front of him with no problem and just a little instruction from our singers. Those with out music either found it in our music books or Alex pulled it up on his IPad, he even found everyone's keys if needed. Anyway, our next singer was BETH FORMELOZA doing "All My Tomorrows", "Old Black Magic" & took us back to the disco years with GLORIA GAYNOR'S "I will Survive" with the whole room clapping and singing along. FERDIE FORMELOZA followed her singing "Are You Lonesome Tonight", "Who Can I Turn To" & "It's Impossible", we also had NONI LAMBERTSON singing "Here's That Rainy Day" & "Bewitched" and lastly we had CLEER doing "Fly Me To The Moon" & "The Very Thought Of You". I have to say, everyone brought their A Game and welcomed Alex to the group, making him very comfortable. Also, that our audiences are really very considerate and are always quite during the performances. And that most are staying to the end, something rare in my experience, and are leave raving with delight at what we are doing for the live entertainment scene in Palm Springs. Believe me it does not go unappreciated to the singers, Joel, myself, an now Alex.
Just a reminder that Joel is playing for the rehearsals for the COD production of Les Miserables on Wednesday nights for 2 months so filling in we have another highly accomplished and recommended musical director named ALEX DANSON. He is a highly trained professional who teaches music and plays for many groups around the valley. He reads music very well but try to bring sheet music, not only for him but for any pianist - it just makes their life easier, and you are more likely to do a better job on your songs too. Alex is happy to help you rehearse your songs for a good rate at his home studio, just like Joel will. You can see more about Alex at: www.alexdanson.com
Remember to make reservations if you plan to have dinner - and to check out the $16 Comfort Food items that come with soup or salad. I highly recommend it. Last week Rafe was having the Lasagne, which is house made and looked so good I ordered it for myself to take home. Rick and I had it for dinner with a salad and french bread two nights in a row - yes it is that big! And probably the best I've ever had, right up there with the Veggie Lasagne Jerome made once. So, see you next week!
BLAME NOTES: Leave your reservations on their voice mail and say "you're coming for the show". And PARK IN THE LOT BEHIND THE BANK, it is a shorter walk and it looks busy for cars driving by.
WHAT HAPPENED AT AJ'S ON SATURDAY:
We were really crowed this week including a lot of new fans in the audience and a large party of about 16 people who took up most of the tables in the back section with 4 singers, one of which we had not seen in ages, GEORGE LEWIS, who sang "Tell Me Tonight" & "Come Dance With Me" and JOYCE (I don't know here last name but I've seen her sing at Melvyn's & she came to 360 once) anyway she did "Hava Nagila" & "Time After Time", also, ELEANOR PEFFLEY doing "I'm Beginning To See The Light" & "Paper Moon", the 4th singer in their group was CARMEN JON and really took the roof off. We actually started the night off with MARGE HARRIS who was on her way to another engagement so she only sang "Cabaret", the perfect start for any show, we also had a new singer named DEANNE CONTE who said she just recently took up singing saying it was on her bucket list to do by the time she turns 70 so she checked that off the list singing "Strange Music" from Desert Song, "I Have Dreamed", & "If I Loved You", & said the most fun & will be back next week, BETH FORMELOZA was there too, singing "What's New", "When You Walk Through A Storm", & "Begin The Begine", of course FERDIE FORMELOZA was next doing "Softly", "What Kind Of Fool Am I", & "I Wish You Love", NOEL GRENNAN did a great job on "After The Loving" as did his wife MARJIE GRENNAN doing "Teach Me Tonight". RAFE CORRELL gave us "Sway" & unfortunately during his song in the second round of singers there was a lot of talking and noise with some people from the large group leaving and saying good bye which was too much for him doing "How Do You Keep The Music Playing" and had to stop in the middle. Sometimes it just happens and it's hard to control the audience, so if you can feel out the audience and pick songs that fit the room and the mood it makes it less challenging. In this case a belt number or uptempo would be called for. Most of all just keep going and ignore it the best you can and don't let it get to you. Moving on, new to the desert, at least part time is TERRY GALLAGHER who lives in Seattle and bought a home in Mission Hills just down the street from AJ's, and came for dinner & to sing "And I'm Feeling Good", "Mack The Knife", & "The Way He Makes Me Feel", her fiance, RANDY ROGERS is also a singer & he sang "King Of The Road". We had TANYA NUNEZ there to sing "How Long Has This Been Going On" "It Don't Mean A Thing" & "Cielito Lino" and then TONY with "My Funny Valentine". Joel & I both got AJ's famous Prime Rib with a Baked Potato to go & it is fantastic! Very tender & seasoned beautifully too. Oh, but the Chicken Marsiella I had last week as their special has been added as a regular feature so don't be shy, ask for it, you'll be so glad you did.
Hope to see you next Saturday, I can't wait to see what the special is, but then everything is fantastic.
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.

THE CRITICS RAVE...
"My goodness, it is brilliant." - Koop Kooper, host, "Cocktail Nation," Sydney, Australia
(World's leading radio show on all things cool and swank)
"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 (check out the cover!)... Laura Ainsworth has the goods and 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, morning show host, RNA-FM/87.7-FM, Scotland
"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 and brilliant contribution to the world jazz scene..."
- Oscar Montagut, TheWorldMusicReport.com
"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...One can almost hear Tennessee Williams and Oscar Wilde rubbing elbows in the audience."
