Singing Around the City

Hi folks, I had the urge to sneak out to some local piano bars during the last few weeks of December. Thanks to Jim and John for coming out and listening to me perform classic show tunes and soon-to-be-classic power ballads. Many thanks, also, to all of the new folks who joined my email list! I'm gearing up for new performances in 2008 so check back for details. Take care, Vandana

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
