MINDI HADAN, a rising star on the San Francisco music scene, has been playing to Standing Room Only audiences at the popular nightclub, “Jazz At Pearl’s” with her unique blend of R & B influenced, country flavored, jazz standards.
Born in Nebraska and raised in Texas, Mindi had a true musical education from the Heartland. The youngest of eight children, Mindi grew up singing in the church choir. She spent every Sunday night watching Lawrence Welk, which lead to forming an Acapella four part harmony singing group with her sisters. During these formative years, Mindi’s mother introduced her to Big Band music, Polkas and Yodeling.
A turning point of “living in the sticks” was when Mindi discovered the discount cassette bin at the local gas station with $1.99 collections of Patsy Cline, Connie Francis, Judy Garland, and surprisingly, Marilyn Monroe. This eclectic treasure chest was the beginning of Mindi’s musical alchemy of combining styles and bringing new interpretations to vintage classics.
