Salon is an ongoing open entertainment event in which singers, writers and musicians share their talent with each other and audience members. There is a $10 cash cover collected at the door and a $15 food/drink minimum (cash or credit) per person. (For more information about Etcetera, Etcetera's delicious menu: 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. The evening runs 7-10:30. If you would like to sign up to perform, see one the evening's 'Etceterettes' to fill out a card with your name, the name of your song, whether or not Mark will be playing for you and any upcoming events you'd like to promote. We do not present performers in order of sign-up. However, indicating requests as clearly and as early as possible as far as time restraints (needing to arrive late/ needing to leave early) always makes everything much more possible. ALWAYS BRING SEVERAL SONG SELECTIONS to avoid duplication. All types of material, on or off theme are always welcome at Salon but please limit your selections to three or four minutes in length (including introductions of songs). Please also bring clear, complete charts for Mark to read. Sitting on the piano is not allowed, nor is flash photography. Please turn off all noise making devices and give performers your undivided attention.

Looking forward to seeing you all Sunday, July 10th!
