ALSO! Happy New Year! A few things you may find different
from The Salon Blog in 2014

Here is an update regarding a few structural changes which will take place on the blog starting in 2014. From now on, the blog will take a more streamlined approach to encapsulate what each Salon night entailed. It will now simply state what the Theme was, who Co-Hosted, who was the Salon Spotlight, what Classical Corner was about and then will list the performing members that were in attendance that night. Below that will be a list of the upcoming shows of ONLY the people who attended that evening. The Blogette of each evening will still be at the door to collect monies but will take minimal notes - so make sure he or she has all song and show information written on the signup cards when you fill it out.  Thank you!
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: A 20% gratuity is added to all checks.) There are no reservations; seating is on a first come/first served basis, Doors open and sign up begins at 6:15pm. The evening begins at 7:00, has a 15-minute break at 8:30 and ends promptly at 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 are concerned 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. We enthusiastically welcome instrumentalists, poets, playwrights, essayists, comics, illusionists and performance artists. Please limit your selections to three or four minutes in length (including introductions). 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.

Thank you to our sponsor Dr. Garrett Bennett!

Looking forward to seeing you all Sunday, January 5th!
