This coming Tuesday (June 23rd), Deirdre, Roger & I are trying something new, happy that we will be doing a full set (35-50 minutes?) at Serra’s Dine & Dance in Studio City, as we’ve just changed our arrangement with the night’s producer.
That’s right we will now be doing 1 full set at the beginning of the evening, and then packing up, as we flip the stage over to comics work-shopping material. We’re constantly looking at and working on “new” material… We do a wide mix of styles, and blends, some like maybe you’ve heard, some like you probably haven’t.
We’ll get there, set up, maybe do a warm up song or two, goof off to some mp3 tracks or whatever, as we set up and sound check (all which is open to the public), and then sometime before or after 8PM we’ll continue on, rolling until 8:45PM.
At 8:45 we’re done, and we’ll flip the stage over to the producer Debbie, at which point she’ll introduce whichever comics she’s lined up for the evening as we quickly break down and get out of there. In past week’s there have been open slots available for comics, so come early and chat with her if you’d like. We may stick around, we may split.

Note: Several of you have expressed interest in seeing me sing “out of the closet” LIVE (ClosetSinger.com)… While I typically don’t post about open mic’s before I go, and many of the times I “guest” in someone else’s show, I only do one or a few songs, or there’s a high ticket price with a drink minimum.
This is a solid, FREE chance to hear us as we continue to develop.
Here’s a video link, of one song from the 1st week…
It was the very 1st time we performed, THE DANCE, live…
