You still might be able to get tickets to Vicci Martinez’s Sunday show

The benefit hometown hero Vicci Martinez is playing Sunday at Jazzbones sold out almost immediately. But the man who it’s being held for, Reed Riley, tells me more tickets will be made available today.

Riley doesn’t know exactly how many and when but if you really want them keep checking the Jazzbones website, Riley says. Martinez wants a full house and is adamant that there be no guest list, Riley says.

Riley was Martinez’s booking agent for 10 years and now he’s facing an upcoming open heart surgery. Martinez is the headliner for Sunday’s 6

Sanjaya is back and he’s at Jazzbones

All this excitement over Vicci Martinez reminds me (tangentially) of another local turned TV talent show star: Federal Way’s Sanjaya Malakar.

Fanjayas, you have something to celebrate: the “American Idol” alum will be playing Jazzbones Sunday in a 7 p.m. show. It’s a stop on his State of Independence tour.

Vicci Martinez feels the love…and vindication

I just got off the phone with Tacoma’s own Vicci Martinez. She literally had just come off the stage at “The Voice” but had a few seconds to tell me what it felt like to advance to the top eight.

Martinez closed the show tonight with a performance
