Stephen Hanks of Cabaret Scenes puts Marquee Five & The Salon on his Top 10 of 2011 List!

From The Times Square Chronicles (t2conline.com) comes this trio of Top 10 of 2011 lists by reviewers Joe Regan, Jr., Sandi Durell, and Stephen Hanks of Cabaret Scenes.  Hanks puts Marquee Five and The Salon on his list, and I can't thank him enough for the support and praise!  Read the full list here, and read quotes below:

3. Marquee Five: 8-Track Throwback—This exciting new singing group absolutely rocked the Laurie Beechman Theater in March and November with their wonderful arrangements on classic pop and rock songs of the 1960s and ‘70s, and followed up with a terrific CD release. This fantastic five-some is the Manhattan Transfer for the new millennium.

10.The Salon Open Mic Cabaret: At Etcetera Etcetera Restaurant (West 44th St), Host and Musical Director Mark Janas and Producer Tanya Moberly have created the classy go-to place to hear singers of every age and style on Sunday nights. Janas’ presentation of “Classic Corner” during the mid-show break alone is worth the cover charge and the minimum.
