60 solo singers and vocal duos have been chosen to compete in the second annual "MetroStar Talent Challenge," an eight-week, jury and audience-voted elimination-round competition that begins on Monday July 13th at 7:00 pm at THE METROPOLITAN ROOM (34 West 22nd Street, NYC - 212-206-0440 - ). The shows, on eight consecutive Mondays, are all at 7pm. "MetroStar" is open to singers of all ages and backgrounds who have not played a major engagement at The Metropolitan Room. The grand prize-winner will win a fully produced, prime time booking at the Metropolitan Room and a professionally produced live recording of this upcoming show. For more details see http://www.metropolitanroom.com/ . There is a $20 cover plus a 2-drink minimum.
Mark Janas and Peter Napolitano, the same folks that bring you the ALGONQUIN SALON every Sunday in the lobby of THE ALGONQUIN HOTEL (59 West 44th Street, NYC - 212-419-9331 - ), now present THE SUMMER OAK ROOM SALON every Thursday night in July in the famed OAK ROOM of the hotel from 7:00 to 10:00 pm starting July 16th. The Oak Room Salon will be an OPEN MIC similar to the Sunday Salon but with some differences. There will be a $10 cover charge, but still no minimum, no optional themes, a special co-host and a featured guest star. There'll also be discount coupons for singers, special drink discounts and raffles. Mark Janas will be at the piano. The opening night show on July 16th will feature Julie Reyburn as the special co-host and the legendary Julie Wilson as Featured Guest Star. Reservations must be made by e-mail via firstname.lastname@example.org.
