In the Press: January 2007 edition of "The Northside"

 
Hi folks, Well, I'm excited to share the latest news with you. There's a feature article about me (along with a color photo!) in the January 2007 edition of The Northside, a local paper serving all of the northern neighborhoods in San Francisco, including Pacific Heights, Nob Hill, Russian Hill, the Marina and Presidio Heights. What a great way to kick-off 2007! I'm also featured in another paper this month: The India Abroad Weekly which will hit stands in North America next week. I hope you are able to pick up a copy of one of these papers and, more importantly, I hope you can come to my next show here in the City on Saturday, February 17th at Martuni's Lounge (my favorite place to sing and drink really excellent martini's). More details about that show are in the calendar section. Thank you very much for your continued support!! Take care, Vandana

My Plush Room Debut Show! What A Fun Night!

 
Hi! Thanks to everyone who attended my debut show at the Plush Room on Sunday, October 1st! What a great crowd!! I have dreamed of singing in this room and I have to say that it was well worth the wait. If you missed the show, you can catch me on December 9th at Martuni's and back at the Plush Room for two nights early next year. Thanks, also, for all of you who bought so many CD's! There were so many special moments last night. I started the show by asking people what "cabaret" meant to them. I walked out into the audience and interviewed people in an effort to bring a better, collective understanding of what cabaret means. It was a great way to start an interactive conversation and engage the audience and draw them into the show. It was a lot of fun :-) My good friends Lesli and Mark are getting married later this month and I dedicated the show to them because I think that "The Power of Love" and marriage go hand in hand. And, their new last name is going to be "Powers" so, of course, I had to mention that as I dedicated "The Nearness of You" to both of them. My good friend Austin Castillo let me sing one of his songs last night. I brought him up on stage and he told the audience that he wrote the song, "Greatest Love," with his parents in mind. His parents were in the audience and they have been married for more than fifty years. The Power of Love. I also sang a lovely song by cabaret composer Dennis Livingston called "An Ordinary Day." Reviews from TalkingBroadway.com and the San Franicsco Bay Times will be out this week. I had a truly wonderful time and felt so lucky to have had so many people there to share in a fun evening of song and story. Rory and Robert - I'm glad that you were able to attend and thank you so much for your wonderful comments after the show! SET LIST Love Changes Everything The Power of Love The Nearness of You God Bless the Child Greatest Love Someone to Watch Over Me As If We Never Said Goodbye An Ordinary Day When He Shines Summertime Being Alive Not While I'm Around Meadowlark With You ENCORE Then You Look At Me See you on December 9th at Martuni's! Take care, Vandana

Birthday Fun!

 
Hi, I met some wonderful people at Keith's friend Lori's birthday party here in the city on Friday night. It was a fun, semi-formal attire-type party with yummy finger foods and drinks. I was asked to sing several songs and I had the pleasure of jamming with Lori's dad, Larry, on a great version of "God Bless the Child." The 25 or so partygoers wanted to hear a sample of songs that I plan to sing at my October 1st Plush Room debut show so I sang "Love Changes Everything," "The Power of Love," and ended with "With You." Keith was a darling to hand out postcards for my show. I'm looking forward to seeing several people from the party at my Plush Room show. Should be a lot of fun! Take care, Vandana

More Fun at Martuni's

 
Hi folks, I'm really gearing up for my October 1st show at the Plush Room :-) Tonight, my shiny, new guy Keith and I headed over to Martuni's. As always, Katy Stephan was fab on the piano and she has such a beautiful voice! I was having too much fun with Keith but I did manage to pry myself away long enough to sing three songs: --Love Changes Everything (a softer, slower version than the one on my CD) --Then You Look At Me (faster than usual) --With You (just soaring!) I'll be out and about singing a few more times before the big day! I would truly appreciate your support and look forward to seeing many of you at the October 1st show. Tickets are on sale now! Take care, Vandana

Finally! My Voice is Back!

 
Hi, I can FINALLY sing again! It's been such a quiet month. I didn't rush into anything - just two songs (Love Changes Everything and Then You Look at Me) at the Octavia Lounge's bi-monthly open mike hosted by the ever-sooooo-talented Bill Cooper and Barry Lloyd. You must, must, must see these men in action. It really doesn't get better than MC Bill and Barry on piano. So, come on out to the next one on September 10th from 7pm - 10:30pm. Better yet, bring sheet music in your key and get up on stage and sing as well! It's always a fun time! Take care, Vandana

A Quiet Month

 
Hi folks, I have been sick with a really bad cough for most of August so I've had a lot of time to reflect this month. Singing provides an outlet for self-expression for me so I've been out of sorts a bit from not being able to sing. I've taken this time to learn a few new songs. I'm looking forward to sharing the new songs with you all soon! Take care, Vandana
