“Sandy Zacky is a treasure, a master of song interpretation, following in the footsteps of Rosemary Clooney and Mabel Mercer”—songwriter Adrienne Anderson (“Could It Be Magic,” “I Go to Rio,” “Déjà vu,” etc.)
Veteran vocalist, Sandy Zacky, has been a popular performer with an extensive series of engagements at leading venues across the western states. Sandy has worked as a solo artist as well as with her partner, Mike Clifford.
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 its 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.
The act developed a cult following including renowned vocal coach to the stars Richard Loring, who introduced her to pop icon Mike Clifford. Sandy''s collaboration with Mike resulted in an entertaining show that evolved into a long-standing stage attraction (working with small group or orchestra) and after many years, the release of their first CD containing memorable recordings of treasures of classic and contemporary pop music.
Sandy and her husband Ron are well known philanthropists in the Los Angeles community. They serve on the board of governors of Cedars-Sinai Hospital, as well as generously contributing their time to several other worthy organizations.
