Verdugo Swing Society

August 22 I sang with Verdugo Swing Society big band at “Dancing Under the Stars” in Glendale put on by the Glendale Department of Parks and Recreations. It was a beautiful day for this outdoor event. Attendees brought picnic baskets and blankets. It was wonderful to see so many people young and old get up to dance…September 3, I sang with them once again. This time it was at beautiful Descanso Gardens in LaCresenta for a wonderful Labor Day event. The crowd was delightful and the gardens were breath taking..It was such a pleasure to perform with this wonderful 17-piece big band. Many of the musicians are active and retired studio musicians. Plans to perform with them for future events are in the works.

The Year to Date

This has been a busy year for me. I just want to keep you up to date on some of the things that I have been doing. I want to be a good blogger In February of this year I presented a reading from my one-woman show, “170hh Rainbow”, for the Claremont Relay for Life (American Cancer Society). The show tells of my bout with lung. Immediately after my reading I sang “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”, and they released white doves. At a previous Relay for Life event I sang at, Hannah Montana the young star of the Disney show sang on the same bill as me. It was a delight to meet her and her manager. She was very sweet.In May and June I performed at Noho Gallery LA with guitarist Tim Moran. The Noho Gallery is a wonderful art gallery in the Noho district of North Hollywood.

How I Got the Name of My Group

November 8, 2006 – Wednesday

Current mood: happy

 Well, my name is Scotti. People always greet me with Beam Me Up. Like from Star Trek when they used to say it. So when I was looking for a name for the group I said why not Scotti and the Beam Me Ups. I wanted something a little bit different, and up to date. Sometimes in my repertoire when doing a show, I do a part about songs with a space theme. Jazz songs that is. For example, “Moon River”. Any song about space, the moon, stars, heaven, etc. I like trying new things

The Retro 1940’s Look

Current mood: happy

I just love that the 1940’s style is back in fashion. I’m singing music from that era so I feel at home. I love the platform shoes, and poka dots are a big thing this era. Everything comes back into fashion every 10 years or so. When I was in high school I went through a faze where I was wearing pillbox hats and looking like that Andrew Sister.I love fashion and I feel good when I am dress when singing. I study what the old singers where. But I add my own fashion sense to it. I give it my personality, so what I where when I perform is sometimes the old stuff with the stuff folks where today. I all depends on my mood that day. I to where the the long gowns and long gloves. But sometimes I go for a more casual look. Still dressy but more laid back.I think that fashion is very important. I have always been interested in it sense I was younger.

The Love of Music

November 5, 2006 – 

Current mood: happy


Category: Music
I love jazz and I love all the instruments. I respect all the instruments. However, the horn really sets the mood for me. I just love the sax. Although, I’m not a big scatter. It’s just that the horn can bring out so many emotions. It adds joy. It can make me happy and sometimes it makes me want to cry. If it were a family—the horn would be the baby. The playful one.
