Third open mic in January!

 

It was so nice to see so many regulars and meet so many new people tonight!  Austin, Mike, Chuck, Courtney, Richard, Jesse, Russ and Verne are my boys!  We all had a lot of fun singing torch songs!  Talk about a fun time for Ben!  I tried out some new material that I'll sing at my 2/22 Feinstein's debut!  I hope to see you there!  The ticket link is on the homepage!  It will be a great show! Once again, I stayed and sang a song soon after the 9 pm open mic with Joseph Magdalana started.  I do love being green and sang my favorite song by a frog we all know and love :-)

Second open mic in January!

 

I love the Friday cocktail open mic with Ben Prince! So many of my friends are there and so many folks drop by and you just never know what you'll get.  I tried some new songs for fun and ended with a lot of favorites.  I even stayed for a bit for the 9 pm open mic and sang a classic Carole King song with the awesome Joseph Magdalena! 

First Open Mic of 2018!

 

Happy 2018!  Back at it!  I had a great time seeing and hearing regulars at the Friday cocktail hour open mic at Martuni's.  The fabulous Eryn Allen was sitting in that night and I had a blast singing songs from Wicked, Celine and an oldie from the 70's - Meadowlark!  No matter how I try to retire that song, it still brings the house down so you'll probably hear me sing it at a show or open mic.

Friday Cocktail Hour Open Mic with Ben Prince

 

It was great to see so many familiar faces at the regular cocktail hour open mic that Ben Prince has played for more than a decade!  I sang a bunch of standards and pop and had a great time mingling with friends and meeting new people.  

Snuck in to sing a song on a Tuesday night!

 

I attend my friend Kirten's Doyle's fabulous Edith Piaf tribute test-run performance at Martuni's and then stayed to sing a quick song (from Wicked) with the fabulous Alan Choy on the keys!  

LIVE VIDEOS: Grateful for another sold-out show at Martuni's yesterday!

 

I am so thankful that so many people chose to attend my December 9th concert at Martuni's!  It was an energetic 80 minute set with songs and stories and lots of laughs and jokes and a very full, sold-out house!  Nick Perez tore it up on the piano!  He is a truly gifted pianist and I had a great time working with him.  I am blessed to be able to do what I love and am going to keep at it!  You can watch some videos of a few songs recorded on smart phones by audience members during the show.  Scroll down for the links below.  And, here are some pictures before, during and after the show.

Fun Sunday Open Mic with loads of fabulous singers!

 

Wow!  Sunday's are known to be great days to to sing at Martuni's open mic with Ben Prince on the keys but today was something special because so many talented singers and even a sax player performed!  

Fantastic Sunday Open Mic - the Broadway National Tour of Aladdin singers showed up!

 

Wow!  What an incredibly fun night!  Sunday's are the best open mics at Martuni's!  It was great to see and hear Heikki, Jesse, Stephan and so many new singers.  We were all in for a treat when some cast members from the Broadway national tour of Aladdin stopped by and sang several songs each.  You never know who will come to Martuni's!  I hope to see you there soon.

Fun Friday Open Mic

 

Another fun, Friday cocktail open mic!  I loved seeing Austin, Mike and Chuck along with so many new faces!  I tried out a rock song that I'll sing at my December 9th show as well as my standard Broadway favorites.  What I love most about open mics is that performing at them keeps you on your toes!  It's all improvised and it's different every time.  Hope to see you at an open mic and at my December 9th show!  Thank you for your support.

Ben Prince it back at Martuni's on Sunday's!

 

What a fantastic night!  Our favorite pianist Ben is finally back after his European gig and everyone was back at Martuni's for a hopping Sunday night to celebrate his return!  It was fabulous to see and listen to good friends Paul, Jason, Chuck and so many others and meet new folks like Nick Chris and Alicia among so many others!  I had a great time singing some show tunes and classic 70's rock!  I hope you can come to my December 9th show!  Tickets are available at vbali.eventbrite.com  I hope to see you there!  Thank you for your support.
