Guess the tune, win two free tickets *and* two drinks on me!

We have a show coming up at The Cutting Room on February 6 and we’ll be debuting a medley of three songs.

The first song is “Isn’t She Lovely” which you can listen to here.

The third song is “Knock on Wood.”

What is the second song?  That is, what is the “glue” that ties the first and third songs together?

The first person to guess correctly will win two free tickets to our February 6 show… and two drinks are on me.

Post your guesses to our Facebook page or send an e-mail to

Make your submissions before 11:59 PM on January 20, 2015.  You may guess as many times as you like.

Note: If nobody guesses correctly my wife Laura gets to enjoy the drinks.

Have a “Top Shelf” when you hear The Top Shelf

We officially launched the signature “Top Shelf” cocktail at our performance at DROM last week and it was a huge success.

Congratulations to 12 Grapes bartender Maria Andrea Prando Barrutia for her amazing Van Gogh Blue Vodka-based creation.  We received more than 40 cocktail recipes from which we selected five finalists.  We then posted a poll on FaceBook and Andrea’s submission took top honors.

Here’s a video of Andrea making a “Top Shelf”.

3 basil leaves
3 wedges of lime
1 oz. St. Germain
1 oz. Orange Juice
2 oz. Orange Vodka
Splash Club Soda


Place the basil leaves with the lime wedges and St Germain into a glass. Using a muddler, crush the basil and lime to release the flavor. Pour into a mixer glass with ice and add orange juice, vodka, and a small splash of club soda. Shake the mix with ice and strain into a Martini glass. Garnish with a small basil leaves and a lime wedge.
