Yoshi's Local Talent Series: Free Live Music in The Lounge 6:30pm to 10pm!
"Her tone is rich and sexy, her phrasing is smooth, the delivery balances carefree passion with subtle humor. Amanda King is the right girl for the very best in American songwriting."
- Seán Martinfield, San Francisco Sentinel
Amanda King is a classic chanteuse who performs little known gems from the 1930’s and 40’s, as well as jazz standards and popular songs from the Great American Songbook. Possessing a smoothness of voice and surety of style, she has been hailed by critic Stephen Holden in the New York Times as one of the nightclub world’s “exceptional rising talents”. Combining the best of the jazz and cabaret worlds by focusing on the words, the music, and the swing, Amanda masterfully interprets the music she adores.
