First of all, Mike Konick is one smooth, suave and funny singer. I really enjoyed his singing, talking with the band and his giving us the history of his beginnings.
Now for Charmaine, this young lady is a complete surprise for me to hear. She is tall, slender and beautiful. Most of all her voice!! Once she sung her first note, I mean Note, I had to look at her really hard because she sings like a sista-gurl. I just knew she has some color in her genes. Her voice is deep, jazzy, sultry, smiling and captivating!! I could hardly eat and drink for listening and watching her. She is fantastic. All I was saying in my mind and out loud....Daaammnnn Girl :)) After each song even her homeland song I said that. What a wonderful surprisingly evening. I am thouroughly satisfied with both singers.
After the event, I met with her and gave her her props. I even said to her, Dammnnn Girl, you are a surprise! We laughed. She is very much a lady and a beauty.

October 2: JOANNE TATHAM. You’ve heard her on movie soundtracks and in the finest nightclub venues in America. Now she makes her Catalina Bar & Grill debut. The Washington Post says Joanne Tatham “has an exceptionally fine voice reminiscent of the great pop balladeers of the late 50’s and early 60’s, but with an intensity and shimmering vibrato all its own.”
October 9: BARBARA MORRISON. The Queen of LA Jazz and Blues returns to Tasty Tuesdays from her latest world tour.

November 13: MARK WINKLER. Singer, composer, and showman Mark Winkler returns to Tasty Tuesdays, where, at his last appearance, the LA TIMES said, “Winkler stands out among what appears to be a diminishing fraternity: male jazz singers.” A class act.
