Janis Siegel and Lauren Kinhan's Vocal Mania on Singers Unlimited

1527182902-Vocal_Mania_Series_Janis_Siegel_Lauren_Kinhan_tickets-1.jpg

Janis Siegel of the Manhattan Transfer and Lauren Kinhan Kinhan of the New York Voices host concerts they call “Vocal Mania” every month at the Zinc Bar. Lauren sings. Janis sings. They welcome friends to sing. 

And always, singers who’ve come for the show come up and sing on the show. Janis, Lauren, and pianist John DiMartino joined me for a preview of this month's show, with laughs and songs - on this Sunday’s Singers Unlimited.
