"I don't sing because I'm happy. I'm happy because I sing." - William James

On December 11, 2011, the optional theme of The Salon will be “HOLIDAY PARTY”! And it’s the last Salon of 2011! In that case, what better group to co-host this unique open mic event than the Definitely Dickens Holiday Carolers – Mick Bleyer, Vanessa Parvin, Sierra Rein & Adam West Hemming! These four glad-tiding-bringers are also known as four of the five members of MAC Award-Winning Marquee Five (the fifth being the amazing Julie Reyburn) and have been recently seen as the Angel City Four in Goodspeed Musicals’ production of “City of Angels”.

The special Salon Spotlight will highlight Daryl Glenn, Alison Nusbaum & Ricky Ritzel!

So, bring your holiday, non-holiday, or anti-holiday music and come share some great cheer and celebrate a joyous 2011 year at The Salon!

Salon is an ongoing open entertainment event in which singers, writers and musicians share their talent with each other and audience members.

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.
