As a jazz singer and performance artist, I have traveled all over the world and stayed in some of the finest hotels from Bangkok to Berlin- but the best service, advice and help I have ever experienced happened this past Friday night at the Providence Marriott. There was a wedding party in the lobby, a busy bar, a rush of people in and out and through the halls and lobby, crazy busy- and I was there for my first ever comedy stand-up bit, not to mention contest!-- in the back conference room. Comics were signing in, guests arriving to see the show, a bar was being set up in the hallway, and the waitstaff was busy with set-up and drink orders and giving directions and moving furniture-- We performers had paid $25 to Catch a Rising Star to compete and I asked at their desk, "is there water for us?" Nobody knew, nobody cared. April Jones, waitstaff member on duty, overheard me and took the time to get me a glass of water- showed me where the ladies room was, - I mean, she was busy- with drink orders and controlling the Friday night chaos, - but she took the time to make sure I was comfortable. When my friends arrived for the show, she helped them find seats in the maze. In the middle of the show, busy as she was, she took time to video tape my 5 minute performance with her cell phone camera!!!! I had mentioned that I needed someone to do it, and somehow, again, in the midst of her work, she helped me out. I witnessed her doing the same for other comics and guests that night-- as well as her fellow staff members- - April, you're a total pro and I can't thank you enough. !!
