May 2014 DCCN Open Mic

On Monday, May 12, the DC Cabaret Network once again sponsored its monthly Open Mic at The Warehouse. Due to Terri Allen’s feeling under the weather, Steven Cupo hosted and was assisted by Cindy Hutchins. The very talented Alex Tang played piano.  A total of twelve people attended.

    The evening had some excitement as there were a good number of “new” singers.  Jill Parsons, who is creating her own cabaret-style evenings at the Shaw Tavern, brought 3 of her “wannabes” to try out some new material and share in the great atmosphere.  An accomplished pianist herself, she is self-described as “one who plays by ear.”  Jill gave Alex an occasional break from the keyboard to play for her friends and give everyone a taste of her style.  It turned into a lovely evening of shared memories and good camaraderie.

    The attending singers and the songs they sang were:

    • Steven Cupo – Mamma, a Rainbow / I Remember
    • Marcia Kass – Angel From Montgomery / Since I Fell for You
    • Faheem Moghal – Grateful / Ice Castles
    • Kathy Reilly – I’m Not Afraid / The Time Has Come
    • Alan Perkins – It Was a Very Good Year / Only You
    • Mark Fallow – The Days of Wine and Roses
    • Jill Parsons – Always Have Me (original song)
    • Stephanie Dailey – Maybe This Time / With One Look
    • Ron Squeri – So In Love / With Every Breath I Take
    • Tracy Simpson       Cold, Cold Heart / How Long Has This Been Going On?
    The folks who chose to just listen were:
    • Cindy Hutchins
    • Mike Repass
    • Tony Simpson
