If You're Around in LA This Weekend - Sept 15-16 - Come To My Sister's Performance In Studio City

Sierra Rein and Matt Demars

Update 9pm - due to airport hell coming down in Oakland this evening (more on this later), I'll be at tomorrow night's show, instead.
I've decided to hop down to LA tonight to see my sister,
Sierra Rein
, perform in L.A. It's a classy singer/piano gig that comes with dinner.

It is a bit pricey, at $50 a couple -- But I'll give you $25 back if you show up and come over to say hi during the show. It's a nice dinner too.

My sis is pretty talented! I'm sure you'll have a good time. It's her first time performing this new act she's been working on for a while, so it would really great to have you there!

(If you decide to go Saturday night, I can paypal you the $25 :-)

When: Friday and Saturday, September 15 and 16, 2006
Time : 7:00 dinner (8pm show)
Place: Sterling's Upstairs, Vitello's Restaurant, 4349 Tujunga Ave, Studio City, CA 91604
(818) 981-3077 or (818) 769-0905

Here's the letter from Sierra explaining the show:
Hello Y'all!

Hello Friends! Family! Classmates! Castmates! Industry peeps!
Former lovers (you know who you are!)!

Have a hot date this Friday or Saturday? Love music, great singing,
and fun piano playing? Want to see me in a sleek, skin-tight black
satin dress?

Spend a special night this weekend with me and my friend Matt DeMars
as we debut our Cabaret nightclub act, DEMARS AND REIN.

It would mean a lot to me to see you in the audience. A lot, as this
is our first Cabaret show. I know, I know, I know $50 may be steep
right now, but I won't be lying when I tell you a great night of music
(perfect for a birthday gift, a date, or a special night out with your
loved one) is in store for you. We will knock your socks off, and if
you're not wearing socks I'll knock something else of yours off,
guaranteed. Live theater, cabaret music, and a meal all in one is not
a traditional or easy-to-find venue in Los Angeles. Come and support
new acts, great food, and the pleasure of live performance.

And may I remind you about the sleek, skin-tight dress?

"DEMARS AND REIN" at Sterling's Upstairs, Vitello's Restaurant
(818) 981-3077 at 4349 Tujunga Ave
September 15th and 16th, 7pm seating, 8:30 show.
Dinner and Theater in one! $50 gets you a four course meal and an
hour of music!

See you there for two very special nights!

On September 15th and 16th, Sterlingís Upstairs presents the exhilarating Cabaret debut of LAís own DeMARS and REIN. Classically trained on the piano since the age of 7, Matt DeMarsí repertoire includes nearly 500 songs ranging from 1920ís Jazz to the Great American Song Book. Influenced by Billy Joel, Nat King Cole, and Andrew Lloyd Webber, his composing talents resulted in Pieces of My Heart which debuted in 2003. Sierra Reinís love of singing began at age two, when her familyís kitchen table became her first stage. She was inspired and instructed how to belt out tunes by watching video tapes of MGM musicals starring Judy Garland, Kathryn Grayson, Anne Miller, and Dolores Gray. Ms. Reinís romance with Broadway musical theater in Los Angeles includes starring roles in The Sound of Music, Camelot, The Little Shop of Horrors and appearing as Edith Piaf in The Night of the Black Cat, to name but a few.
