From a talent point of view, tonight's TOP DOG show is headed for “Be Good or Be Great” status!  It will be pure Amateur Night entertainment at its best!

Tonight's highlights include: Jawan Mathis (for the ladies), Nicole Vanessa Ortiz (always an Amateur Night favorite), Christian Guardino (Our new kid vocal phenom), Sung Lee (the man of many sounds and featured in CBS Sunday Morning) and our own 15 year old Minnie Riperton - Sydney Arterbridge, just to name a few! The level of talent at this Top Dog is what Amateur Night is all about!  Stop by yourself and send some folk.
