Featured Gig:  Our eleventh presentation at Angelicas is Wednesday, August 22 and will feature, exciting jazz vocalist, Wendy Waller.

Wendy Waller’s unique and creative approach to melody and lyric embodies the vast rich landscape of American Music. Born into an artistic family of musicians, painters, and writers, Wendy spent her young years cultivating her multiple abilities, singing, acting and dancing in musical theater.
