(Revisiting Trav S.D.’s Last Chance Saloon – Originally posted Sept. 24, 2010)

Trav S.D,’s Last Chance Saloon was a wonderful collection of performers from all disciplines.
Hosting the evenings festivities was non other than the man himself.
Trav S. D. invites the audience to partake in some vaudeville comic lines.
Let’s get this show ‘crackin’.
First up was a lovely songstress with a very charming voice.
Jullian Tully sang and enchanted the audience.
In between the acts Trav S.D. was there to remind us about ‘vaudeville’s roots and history.
Trav S.D. has written extensively about vaudeville in his blog and his book “No Applause, Just Throw Money, The Book That Made Vaudeville Famous.”
Next up in the amazing lineup was Lorinne Lampert.
A beautiful voice, great dancer and charming stage personality.
Sang the wonderful classic “Ta-ra-ra-doom-de-ay” with audience participation.
Music was in the air in this Saloon as DYE VIOLETS came up next to entertain.
Adam Swiderski – Guitat, harmonica,vocals – Sarah Engelke – Accordion,ukelele, vocals.
Original songs with terrific voices made this duet a hit.
TRAV S.D. is not one to miss a chance to get some funny lines in between the acts.
A multi talented musician and singer is Jenny Lee Mitchell (disguised tonight as Deirdre Theramin.)
Deirdre Theramin sings a libretto.
Jenny Lee Mitchell also performs with a hysterically funny and talented band called “The Maestrosities”.
‘The Children of the People’ was the band that Trav S.D. formed and sang with.
(Oweinama Biu, Derek Davidson, Chris Talsness,Robert Pinnock, Jullian Tully)
Last but not least was a gentleman that ‘told stories’ that were just plain funny.
Until next time…
Thanks for coming to the Last Chance Saloon!
