Leigh Scarritt Sings At Schroeder's Friday

Leigh ScarrittThere is an excellent review on page 22 of the Night & Day section in today's Union-Tribune about Schroeder's Club and Cabaret and their July 2nd show that starred Sam Harris. There also is a picture that features Leigh Scarritt, who will appear at Schroeder's Friday night, singing with Todd Schroeder, the club's namesake. Click here to read the Night & Day article, which is headlined: "Paging Cole Porter."

My friend Marisa Cullen and I were at the Sam Harris show the night after reviewer David L. Coddon was there, and we both gave the event two thumbs up! Marsi and I shared an appetizer of flat bread and we both liked that and would order it again. My only complaints matched two of Coddon's -- it took quite a while to get waited on at the very crowded lobby bar, and the concert room itself was rather warm.

This weekend Schroeder's Club and Cabaret and Show Must Go On Productions will feature performances by Leigh Scarritt on Friday and Phil Johnson on Saturday. I shot the picture above of Leigh at a cabaret show she did for SMGO in April.

Here is an e-mail from SMGO's Sher Krieger:

Thanks for all of your help in making Schroeder's Club and Cabaret a reality. We had a really great weekend with Diva Leigh Scarritt on Friday and Ric Henry and Eileen Bowman on Saturday. Two nights filled with beautiful voices, comedy and fun. Thanks, too, to the Westin Horton Plaza for having such a fantastic room that becomes Schroeder's on the weekend. The management and staff have been wonderful!

We'll have two local favorites performing this weekend. Friday, July 16, is an encore performance by Leigh Scarritt, with Rayme Sciaroni on piano, and Saturday, July 17, we have Phil Johnson, with Wendy Thompson on piano, doing Phil's show, "The Toast of the Smart Set!" Both performances are at 8:00 p.m. and tickets are $22 for each show. Todd Schroeder will be dropping by for an after-show performance on Saturday, so feel free to stay at Schroeder's after Phil's show.

Call 858-794-9044 for info. You can make reservations (preferred) or just show up about 7:15. No-host food and cocktails available. Don't miss our exciting shows!
