February Open Mic Wrap-up

Just in time for Valentine’s day, the DC Cabaret Network hosted its February Open Mic.

Five singers.  One musical director.  And just enough music to chase away the winter blues.

If you weren’t able to attend, you missed Reenie Codelka on the keyboards creating some wonderful moments and music with the singers:

Susan CliftonThe Man that Got Away, Bewitched and Come Rain or Come Shine

Aimee BarnesI’ll Be Here, My Simple Request and Cute Boys with Short Hair Cuts

Jane BrewsterMisty

Dorian WoodruffSomeone To Watch over Me, Weren’t We Fools? and Sleep Warm

Terri AllenJust in Time, Funny Valentine and (with back-up from Reenie Codelka) Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?
