List mates, for more in formation about Stars Cabaret see:

Several years ago we did some gigs for Delilah's Club here in the
Philadelphia area. Similarly, a Gentlemen's Club. LOVED THEM. And ask Evan
Christopher about his recent gigs at a strip joint prior to Katrina.

Beaverton seems like the ideal town for T & A plus a hot band. No wonder
those octogenarian Doctors will play there on the cheap. :-) VBG.
