88's Cabaret Re-Cap/*Time is a Healer* Video

So, last night was the 88's Cabaret 3rd Anniversary Show, and it was really cool to be a part of it! I met Ryan Black only a few months after he started 88's Cabaret, and I've been performing there off-and-on for all three years it's been around. In fact, Ryan gave me the sweetest little shout-out after I sang my song saying, "she has been there for 88's almost since the very beginning, so we're very pleased to have her here tonight!" Aw. Thanks, Ry.

Last night the show was at Gonpachi in Beverly Hills (normally we are at it's sister restaurant La Boheme, in West Hollywood) it was our first time performing there and my first time being there and MAN, This place was GORGEOUS! The bartender told us that everything in there, the solid wood bar top, the light fixtures, the artwork, etc. was all imported from Japan, making this Japanese restaurant look like the REAL DEAL. I loved it. I want to go back sometime when I'm NOT performing to try their "Sakegria", and some sushi and the hand-made soba noodles that you watch the chef make (he's actually inside a kind-of glass box when he makes it... kinda weird when you think about it, but it was still cool to watch!)

After the sound check we were able to catch a little bit of the Celtics game while we hung out at the bar. I was super happy about this because my wonderful husband was probably DYING inside that he was hanging out at a cabaret when there was a Celtics Playoff Game AND a Red Sox game going on! Now THAT is real love and support! What a good hubby I have :)

The show, of course, was great. Great songs, big laughs, and a fun crowd. Most of the time there is some sort of theme for the shows, but last night there wasn't, we could choose whatever we wanted... so I chose one of my all time favorite songs, "Time is a Healer" by the amazing Eva Cassidy. I've been singing this song in my bedroom for YEARS but this was the first time I ever sang it in front of anyone...



Thanks to everyone who came out last night! And, thanks to everyone who clapped after my high note! hahaha. Until Next time....
