One Olive or Two
Veteran vocalist, Sandy Zacky, has been a popular performer with an extensive series of engagements at leading venues across the western states. In her teens her brother introduced her to the legendary Sam Cooke who took her under his wing and mentored her early singing career. At the time of Sam Cooke's death Sandy chose to set aside her musical ambitions for the world of fashion and quickly became a top full figure model, working with Pierre Cardin among others. She was featured in many of the important fashion magazines of the day, including several times in BBW. She was also an accomplished fine art photographer displaying her work at Los Angeles area galleries. During this period Sandy married and left the road long enough to raise three wonderful and successful sons. While working as a wife and mother she attended Cal State Northridge graduating Summa cum Laude in Literature. When Sandy returned to performing, she gravitated to the L.A. jazz club scene for it's intimacy and spontaneity. She lost none of her early magic and again impressed booking agents with her talent leading to regular appearances at Rose Tattoo, LeMondrian, Perino's, Vine Street Bar & Grill, Cinegrill, Gardenia, the St. James Club (headlining a special tribute to Sylvester Stallone). She also performed at The Variety Arts Center, the famous Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel (opening for Milton Berle), and even The "Fabulous" Forum. Sandy has worked as a solo artist as well as with her partner, pop music icon, Mike Clifford.
