DCCN Open Mic — September 28th

The DC Cabaret Network had their September Open Mic at Stars last night. 

It is the first time I’ve been to one there. I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised by changes to the venue including carpeting and drapes that really make the room seem less cavernous and cave-ish soundwise.  I also always forget how pleasant the food is and what a good selection of martini’s the bar has.

It was great to see people presenting their material, and it was also a treat to have some of the singing Stars waitstaff also contribute music to the evening.  Peter Darling was at the keys.  Here’s what people sang*:

  • Chelsea Alexander
    • My Funny Valentine
  • Terri Allen
    • Taking a Chance on Love
    • The Very Thought of You
  • Stephanie Dailey
