G'day  <<First Name>>,

If I seem very excited, it's because I am!  :-)  I can finally announce my new cabaret show Il Decimo Figlio.  Sounds like a good date night idea. *hint hint* ;-)   Those of you who do not reside in Sydney will have to catch me on the flip side.  However,  I hope to get a bit of video to post online.   Because of Covid-19, seating is limited to 30 peeps, so please don't wait too long to buy tickets.  Hope you enjoy this month's MJM-zine.  Later!   xx  Mad
Il Decimo Figlio
Dinner & Show $100.00.  Limited Reserved Seating.  Covid-safe precautions in effect!  No sing-a-longs. ;-)
Claire's Kitchen @ Le Salon 35 Oxford Street, Sydney 6:30pm - 10:30pm. (French cuisine)
Madison McKoy has nine older siblings and in keeping with Claire’s Kitchen Viva il Divo theme, he presents his cabaret ‘Il Decimo Figlio’ -- The Tenth Child. Being the youngest isn’t always what it’s cracked up to be but sometimes... it is. Madison has released an album of original compositions of the same name -- a couple you’ll hear in ‘Il Decimo Figlio’. Rest assured, no singing will be attempted in Italian. Join Madison on an alacritous journey in story and song from his stage-life to his life-life. You’ll hear some immediately recognisable tunes as well as originals. Madison will be accompanied by the lovely, Bev Kennedy on keys. [image credit: Benjamin Williams]

What rights do songwriters have to protect their original jams from becoming political anthems? The unauthorised use of songs by politicians at their rallies is a hot topic.  Because use of the song may be seen as endorsing a certain brand or philosophy, the political party must deal directly with artist and songwriter to seek clearance.  READ MORE

 Dexter Villahermosa 
Dexter started out in the original Australian cast of Miss Saigon and eventually played in the West End production shortly after. As well as his love of performing in the theatre, which included playing Jesus in Superstar, he also enjoys other avenues of musical creativity including songwriting, music production and being a multi-instrumentalist (“master of none” an apt if not altogether flattering descriptor). He was thrilled and honoured to reunite with Madison on stage a couple years back at the MJM Entertainment production, April Baby, and most recently has been performing in clubs and theatres in a tribute to Musicals and Lloyd Webber in a show called “Music of the Night”. Presently, he is playing sold out shows to the millions in his head that fill up the vast quantities of empty seats in his living room -- “Thanks Covid!”  He remains ever thankful for the greatest blessings in his life – his two young sons and his wife, and his Beatles LP’s.  Check out Dex singing and playing a bit of Bob Marley at #AprilBaby.  You can say g’day to Dexter on his socials. xx

Easy Lemon Magic Pudding aka Lemon Delicious!
One evening a few weeks ago, I was craving lemon!!  So, I went on the search for a lemon dessert and found this one.  They called it Easy Lemon Magic Pudding but I know it as Lemon Delicious.  AND IT WAS!!!  I'd never made one before and admittedly, was a little nervous pouring liquid on top of my cake before popping it into the oven, but all worked out fine!!!  Unfortunately, the entire thing was eaten in one sitting (I don't recommend that!)  Give me a yell on Insta or FB if you try these recipes.  Post a pic as well and hashtag #MJMAustralia.  :-)  xx
5 ingredients -- no eggs!!
