By Terri Allen
DC Cabaret Network Board of Directors, and organizer/coordinator of our monthly open mics:
Open Mics are always a fun time. They give our members the opportunity to sing, experiment with new music and also work with material they are more familiar with. It is always a joy to listen to the variety of singers and material that is presented. And it is almost impossible to come to an Open Mic without asking a singer – “who wrote that song?”
Special Thanks to Our Hosts
The Network’s December Open Mic has become a great annual event, thanks to Michael Miyazaki and Ron Squeri who lead the Open Mic with their own unique blend of holiday spirit.
Great Participation in Toys for Tots Event
For the last few years, the DC Cabaret Network has participated in Toys for Tots sponsored by the U.S. Marine Corps at the Dec. Open Mic. This year, once again, members of the Network rallied and brought all kinds of wonderful presents (tea sets, jewelry, Barbi dolls and even stuffed animals!) Although the Marines were not able to pick up the toys at our event, the toys were delivered to a fire station in the area also sponsoring a Toys for Tots fundraiser. Thanks to the DC Cabaret Network members for once again supporting this cause and making our December Open Mic a great event!
