The optional theme for the evening is “The Recording Arts/Demo Night Part II with Peter Millrose". Peter Millrose will once again be recording the entire Salon evening! That means that everyone will have the opportunity to listen to a studio quality, live recording of their performance via the internet before deciding whether or not they care to purchase it for a $30 fee. Salon will run as it normally does - Peter will just be recording it live. (For more information: Whether you are interested in having a song recorded or not – the theme is “The Recording Arts”. Bring the song you love to listen to or the song recorded by your favorite singer; a the song from that record (LP, 45, CD or iTunes) that means something to you or a song you've always wanted to sing for your friends and family and then send it to them for the holidays!

Here's some important information about the Salon you should know. The Salon is an ongoing open entertainment event in which singers, writers and musicians share their talent with each other and audience members. We are currently enjoying our new venue, Etcetera, Etcetera where there is a $10 COVER (cash) AND a $15 FOOD/BEVERAGE MINIMUM (cash or credit). You may sign up to perform starting at 6:15 by seeing one the evening's 'Etceterettes' to fill out a card with your name, the name of your song, whether it's a ballad or an up tempo,(up tempos and comic songs are greatly encouraged!) and any upcoming events you'd like the co-host to announce. Please remember that we do not present performers in order of sign-up and, due to our time restraints and other variables, filling out a card does not guarantee you will perform, but we do our very best to get you up! It is usually a good idea to bring a few different song choices to avoid duplication. All types of material including spoken word are welcome at the Salon but please limit your selections to three or four minutes in length and please bring clear, complete charts for Mark to read. Sitting on the piano is not allowed, nor is flash photography. If you would like to add a (or remove your) name from our list, e-mail me at

Looking forward to seeing you all Sunday, October 24th!
