The Couples Club of Rossmoor is presenting a Cabaret on Friday, September 20, 2019 in the Donner Room at the Event Center at 7 p.m. The evening will start with signature cocktails: Kir Royale, French wines or non-alcoholic sparkling drinks. If you wish you may bring your own beverage.
Girards Catering will pass a variety of appetizers during the cocktail and social time including savory cream puffs filled with smoked salmon, cream cheese, orange zest and dill; warm French garlic bread with caramelized onions; lemon zested bruschetta with an artichoke, parmesan, sundried tomato and basil topping; roast beef French dips served in small sourdough bowls with Provolone and cabernet au jus; chicken Cordon Bleu served on puff pastry squares with ham and Swiss cheese; and marble rye rounds topped with melted brie, roasted grapes, walnut, and arugula.
At 8 pm members will be seated at tables in the Tahoe Room in a cabaret-like setting, to enjoy performances by Duo Gadjo: Isabelle Fontaine and Jeff Magidson, and the Golden Follies.
Duo Gadjo’s music is inspired by the sounds of the ’20s and ’30s when jazz was the thing and Paris was the place to be. Their style is generally called ‘French Cafe’ and their repertoire spans from Bal-Musette to Edith Piaf, and Serge Gainsbourg. They accompany themselves on guitars and the Melodica, but the real feature is Isabelle Fontaine’s sultry vocals.
The Golden Follies is a fast-paced Las Vegas-style revue, featuring performers ages 55 and over, strutting their stuff to musical sounds from nostalgia to today’s hottest sounds. These talented artists are adorned in gorgeous, colorful costumes, execute stylish choreography and set the stage on fire with their tapping feet.
They have been performing their stylized musical and dance revues for many years and have appeared at the Paramount Theatre, The Town Hall in Lafayette, and dozens of other locations.
The Directors and originators of The Golden Follies are a sister team, Diane Stawicki and Susan Bostwick. They have used their extensive performance background in dance to choreograph the shows as well as design the costumes, arrange music and concepts. They have performed throughout the US and Europe.\
At the conclusion of the show, a platter of little sweets cookies will be served along with a bottle of champagne to complete the evening. Decaf coffee and tea will also be available in the Donner Room.
The cost for the evening is $30 per member and $40 per guest of members. Send checks, payable to Couples Club of Rossmoor, to Gerda Peterson at 2625 Ptarmigan, No. 4, Entry 16. Reservation checks must be received by Friday, September 6 with no refunds or cancellations after the cut-off date.
It is advisable to get your check in early. Club members always have priority for an event until the cut-off date. Guests of single members have the same priority as members and pay member cost. Other guests are accommodated on a space available basis and in the order by date their check was received.
The event will be open seating. For more information, contact Kathy Johnson on 925-300-3754 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Many attendees showed up in costume for last month’s Oktoberfest event.
All the good food and drink with the Grand Isle Fire Brigade Band made for a fun evening.
There was lots of singing along and even that crazy chicken dance.
The committee had the buffet line set-up so perfectly that over 200 people were fed in 20 minutes.
Thank you to all the volunteers who made it all possible:
Glen & Charlote Orren, Merrie Bailey & Tom Hansen, Carol Caputo & Rich Schlenker, Marilyn & Dimitri DeDenko, Kay Doyle & Larry Ruff, Elaine & Kris Kimball, Det & Chris Kutzscher, and George Bray.
