If You Weren't At Schroeder's, You Blew It!!!

I got home from Schroeder's Club and Cabaret about 2:30 a.m.! What an incredibly intense night!!! I pity the poor fools who missed Friday night's show and party! If you weren't there, you really blew it! With all the words I know, I can't even begin to find any words good enough to tell you what a great night it was!

I'm just going to name some of the magnificent people I heard sing. If you recognize the names, though, you'll realize what you missed, and you might start banging your head against something hard!

Danielle Forsgren, the Diva of the night, who did a wonderful show! Todd Schroeder, the namesake himself and a powerful piano player who uses all of the keys! My dear friend Bettina "Pixie" Warren, the voice that built this cabaret enterprise and a woman I've known since she was only sweet 16! Rayme Sciaroni. Melinda Gilb. Debra Wanger. Shirley Krieger. Sher Krieger. Maureen Popp. Eileen Bowman. Ric Henry. And Sam Harris! A few other people took the stage too, but I didn't catch all of their names.

If you're smart and/or hip, you will get to Schroeder's next weekend, July 2nd and 3rd, to see and hear Sam Harris!!! Sam stopped by for the after-show party Friday and did 2 or 3 songs that were better than anything I've ever heard by a male singer before! (Sorry to all the mortal males I know, but I've decided that Sam is a god of singing!) I remember rooting for Sam week after week on the very first "Star Search" about 150 years ago, so it was great to see and hear him in person (and good to know that we're both still alive)! Wow!!! That's all I can say. Just wow!!!

If you want to see what I mean, catch Sam Harris yourself next Friday and Saturday nights at Schroeder's Club and Cabaret. Be there!!! Or I will laugh at you every time I see you, for not being there and totally missing out!

I also saw my old "La Jolla DNA" buddy Douglas Foxworthy there Friday, because he is working with Danielle Forsgren on her impending TV series for her scrapbooking business, Diva Craft Lounge, and I met a ton of cool new people too, including one very attractive real estate agent, who hopefully will return to Schroeder's for future shows, since she left without letting me take the photo she promised. ;>
