Update from Producer Tanya Moberly - April 12, 2011 *DIFFERENT VENUE*

SALON, that unique, 2011 MAC Award NOMINATED, 2010 Bistro & MAC Award WINNING, Weekly Open Mic Event created and hosted by Mark Janas will be at a DIFFERENT VENUE FOR THE EVENING OF APRIL 17th: SAN MARTIN, 143 East 49th St, NYC 10017, 212-832-0888, www.sanmartinrestaurantny.com. (7-10:30pm/sign up begins at 6:15)

The optional theme for the evening is “The Great Escape!” Palm Sunday (April 17th) is the annual opening day of Coney Island. Houdini, the great escape artist - came to fame, fell in love and married in Coney Island. Amusement park, boardwalk and beach all in one and all in Brooklyn. Bring in anything having to do with getting away/escaping/vacation/a change of scene/relaxing/enjoying!!!

Remember, any material, on or off theme, is always welcome at Salon.

Our Co-Host will be Charter Salon Member - Donna Coney Island! Well known for her Stage, Screen & Voiceover work, Donna portrayed Edna Ferber in “Talk of the Town”, a show about The Algonquin Round Table that ran in The Oak Room and was musically directed by Mark Janas. “Talk of the Town” - along with Mark, a grand piano, Donna and her fellow cast members - is directly responsible for the birth of Salon. We are thrilled to have her as our Pioneer Co-Host in this new venue that we are trying out.

$20 in cash will be collected at the door by Sierra Rein ($10 for the cover charge and $10 to purchase a food/beverage ticket, covering the $10 minimum and redeemable toward San Martin's delicious drinks and snacks. Any additional food/beverage charges can be paid by cash or credit.) There are no reservations; seating is on a first come/ first served basis, with one intermission. Doors open and sign up begins at 6:15pm with Marnie Klar.

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. You may sign up to perform starting at 6:15 by filling 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 tanya@tanyamoberly.com

Looking forward to seeing you all at San Martin Sunday, April 17th!
