Martuni's Monthly Song Circle

 
Hi! I think I'm on a roll right now. My sister came out to Martuni's monthly song circle with me today and we had a blast! Sean Bart rocked the keys! This guy can really play the piano! I performed five songs this evening: As if We Never Said Goodbye When He Shines Love Changes Everything Then You Look At Me The Power of Love Take care, Vandana

SOLD OUT: "The Power of Love" Cabaret/Birthday Show at Martuni's

 
Hi! I am so excited! We had an amazing 75 minute show last night at Martuni's. All the seats were filled with smiling guests - another sold-out show! What a wonderful way to share my birthday. Guests were pleasantly surprised to receive a copy of my new "The Power of Love" CD as part of their ticket price. I was honored to have the supremely talented Victoria Theodore on piano last night - this lady sizzles on the keys! http://www.vtmusicworks.com. We ended the evening with a chocolate ice cream birthday cake. I'll post photos next week.

Project Homeless Connect 10 (PHC10)

 
Hi! Wow! It was such a pleasure to perform a 40 minute set at this important volunteer day at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium. The event was hosted by Mayor Gavin Newsom. Learn more about Project Homeless Connect at http://www.projecthomelessconnect.com/ Volunteer your time on June 9, 2006 and be a part of what makes San Francisco such a great place to call home: helping those in need. Being able to share the gift of music never felt so good! I especially want to thank the supremely talented Victoria Theodore for playing the keyboard for me today. You rock! SET LIST: The Power of Love Someone to Watch Over Me When He Shines Love Changes Everything The Nearness of You God Bless the Child As If We Never Said Goodbye Then You Look at Me And, we had a request from the audience during the middle of the set for "My Heart Will Go On - the Love Theme from the movie Titanic" We did it and I had to improvise the words for a good portion of the songs since I didn't know the words. I think of it as pulling an "Ella" when she forgot the words to "Mack the Knife" in Berlin in 1960. Remember that?? It's one of my favorite takes and it reminds me how important it is to be able to just go with the flow and have fun. Thanks to Kevin Marlatt, Blue Bear School of Music's Executive Director, for organizing our participation at this event. Take care, Vandana

Martuni's Monthly Song Circle

 
Hi, What a fun time! While the crowd was sparse (lots of rain kept many regulars away) those of us who were there had a great time! I sang two new songs, "As If We Never Said Goodbye" and "Then You Look at Me," and had enough time to sing my current fav "God Bless the Child." Thanks to James Campbell Jr. for playing piano today and to Ellen Nicholas for hosting the monthly song circle at Martuni's. Take care, Vandana

Top of the Mark, San Francisco

 
Hi folks, I had some fun this past Friday night (March 31, 2006). My friend Tony Lindsay, an amazing R&B/Jazz singer with soulful, buttery tenor vocals, sings with the Black Market Jazz Orchestra at the Top of the Mark some weeks. The band was kind enough to let me sit in and sing a bluesy version of my current favorite song from my new CD, "God Bless the Child." We rocked the house and it was so nice to see the entire dance floor full of people by the end of the song. It was a clear night (can you believe the rain stopped?) and the view from the 19th floor was to die for. Thanks to John for coming and taking that awesome photo in the photo section. Take care, Vandana

Saturday Night at Martuni's

 
Hi, I just went out tonight with my friend John to see my friend Groovy Judy compete in a battle of the bands and I was inspired to drink a really good martini. So, John and I headed to Martuni's (my fav spot) and Steve Snelling was doing an outstanding job on piano. I got to chatting with Steve and ended up doing an impromptu performance of "God Bless the Child" and a lovely duet with Vanessa from Honolulu on "Someone to Watch Over Me." Steve is amazing! You need to check him out. What a fun night! Take care, Vandana
