Our Cabaret nights have left everyone asking for more. it’s a Combination Dance Club and Broadway Cabaret.Dance groups especially welcome ! We have the space ! FAQS :
RSVP ? Please do ! I like to PLAN. Don’t you ? Your RSVP assures you of a performance spot. If you’re no-Show , then we just move everyone up ! If you arrive unconfirmed, we put you in line. No pressure. Repeated lack of response to the regular invites will get you removed from the guestlist, eventually .
SOUND /TECH ?: I have a full sound board , a CD player and 3 mics . Plug in your iPad or iPhone. I do NOT provide a Karaoke set-up with Lyrics onscreen . If you need electronically displayed lyrics, then you have to figure out how to make that happen on your own device. I recommend that you Be like a pro and memorize a song or two. Cheat Sheets discouraged, but allowed. ITUNES offers a good selection of accompaniment tracks. Type in the word KARAOKE after the title when you search the iTunes store.
I do NOT answer my phone after Cabaret night starts. I don’t wear my iPhone.
FOOD ? Of course there will be something to nibble on, but This is not meant to be a food-centered ‘dinner’ event. Today’s negligence to RSVPs makes that impossible to plan . You won’t be able to ‘Fill Up’ here as at a buffet. Dine before you arrive and bring something snack-like if you like, and take it away when you leave. PLEASE No toxic food-example : thawed out Birthday cake with Smurf Blue icing. Please Don’t call to ask me exactly what food to bring. I don’t want to talk about food . It’s about music
BEVERAGES : This needs to be a BYOB situation. This is different from previous Cabaret Nights. I have talked this event up among many performers under 21 who want this opportunity to perform. For us to “serve” alcohol is problematic. If I had to disinvite everyone under 21 , I would feel like a Snob, and we risk being somewhat under attended. So Adults over 21, Please BYOB. You will still have a great time. Many Non-alcoholic beverages will be on display.
KIDS ? Bring ’em if they can not be a disruption to the singing. Prepared kids can perform, of course. I recommend songs that are entertaining , please.
WHAT IS APPROPRIATE ? : Avoid Politics, please . Please help energize the evening with uptempo entertaining selections. High energy song choices help pack the dance floor. Keep it clean before 9 pm. Performers who are young enough not to have a drivers license are encouraged to come early and leave by 9:30 because the Grown-ups may want to sing about naughty stuff. If parents say it’s OK to stay , then stay , but remember that you were warned!
HOW ABOUT COUNTRY AND GOSPEL MUSIC? I would rather you didn’t. We can hear that anytime around here … at the Dollar Store and the Car Wash, etc. I seek to create a Retro Manhattan atmosphere rather than A Nashville or church atmosphere. If you want to sing about Jesus,you can always go do that in Church -up to twice a week !If country music is all you know, then ….OK…. but please do NOT invite your country music -singing friends to drop in and jam. I don’t want it to morph into “pickin on the porch”.
WHAT TO WEAR ? Dress Fun and classy. Pretty Party Clothes .Maybe Something delightful that you found at Goodwill and love but is not understood by the General local public. That outrageous 70s Silver caftan ? Sure ! The feather boa ? Absolutely ! Sequins and fake hair encouraged. Ripped jeans and T shirts are very strongly discouraged. Choose beauty. Choose Glamour. Choose class. Be Fabulous.
