BACK ON STAGE FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE COVID

BACK ON STAGE FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE COVID

“The stage is bare, the lights are gone, the love we shared still lingers on. I sang and played, and we laughed and cried and in my fumbling way I tried…to say what only hearts can know and all too soon we had to go…” – Sandi PattiHere I am at my computer ready to launch tonight’s Cabaret Hotspot! Newsletter and Spotlights after having just debuted my first full, formal Cabaret show back since January 2019. I know, the glamorous life of a performer...

SET SINGING vs. A FORMAL CABARET SHOW

SET SINGING vs. A FORMAL CABARET SHOW

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SINGING SETS OF TUNES vs. PUTTING UP A FORMAL CABARET SHOW? This question may seem obvious, but it’s a little more complicated right now. Since I know that many of you do not sing sets, I thought this column might be helpful.As many of my New York readers know, my band and I have been singing regularly at West Bank Café and at Pangea. We were hired to sing “sets” vs. doing a formal Cabaret show. Since the Pangea gig is a Jazz Open...

LIVE PERFORMANCE AS WE COME OUT OF COVID

LIVE PERFORMANCE AS WE COME OUT OF COVID

We are all very excited by the CDC’s recent statement that masks are now no longer going to be required for outdoor and indoor clubs and restaurants, but this is still a very personal choice for each of us.With NO judgement on whatever choices you will make in the up-coming months as we all try to find our way back to the “new normal” of live performance, I wanted to share a couple of updates on what’s going on in the clubs and about my own performance choices for you to ...

SOME OF THE BEST ADVICE I'VE EVER RECEIVED

SOME OF THE BEST ADVICE I'VE EVER RECEIVED

I have been so lucky to have had some of the most amazing mentors in my singing career over these past 30 years. Here is some of the BEST advice I have ever gotten form them: TRUDI MANN – Trudi and I go back over 30 years. We met and sang together at the original Village Gate. While Trudi never offered and verbal advice, by nature of how she performed the songs that chose and the way that she was always jazzy but still completely connect to her lyric, made a lasting impression on me t...

THE 'HYPE' OF CREATING A BUZZ...MARKETING TIPS

I have recently been helping a friend create a Marketing Plan to help them move forward in their career (something I should maybe also be doing for myself!) While doing this, I have discovered many things that I wish to share with you all today in a brand-new Sue’s Views. These are just some bullet points pulled from a section of my “Business of Cabaret Class” which will be offered very soon here on Cabaret Hotspot University.How to get started? First of all, what is marketing?...

THE POWER OF "NO"!

THE POWER OF "NO"!

We always hear about the power of saying, "Yes" and how we should say, "Yes" to everything for the exposure or the experience or to network and these are all good reasons but...What about the power of saying, "No?" Or even the power of saying, "Hell no!" Why and how can it be beneficial to us as performers to say, "No?"The late, great grand dame of Cabaret, Julie Wilson once told me as we were sitting in a bar in Fairbanks, Alaska that she didn&#...

WHAT I HAVE LEARNED DURING THE PANDEMIC

WHAT I HAVE LEARNED DURING THE PANDEMIC

I have learned that:I could not have gotten through this without Zoom and Facebook. What great tools to perform, create and see people in real time to feel less lonely.I do not have to sing. Singing is a privilege and I love to sing, and while I’ve been singing and posting clips of myself, it’s not as much of a priority as I thought in my life right now. It has, however, been a saving grace.The downtime, in some respects, was a blessing. I’m the “Queen of Organization&rdq...

SURVIVOR'S GUIDE #1 - ACTIVATE TO MOTIVATE

SURVIVOR'S GUIDE #1 - ACTIVATE TO MOTIVATE

A SURVIVOR'S GUIDE TO THEPANDEMIC #1ACTIVATE TO MOTIVATE I haven’t been inspired to write a Sue’s Views for a long time because David Sabella and I have been busy getting ready for our book, So You Want to Sing Cabaret, to “drop” (now delayed like everything else.) AND, with all that’s happening these days, I haven’t felt like writing about singing (or even actually singing), or creating, or anything! I have not felt motivated. Yet, here I am in my of...
