The internationally-ignored Niki, now in her 27s, went to the University of Rhode Island where she graduated summa cum laude with a double major in Music and Communications. This degree proved to be as useful as a degree in pinball. She's since spent much of her time languishing away in many unexciting and unrelated dayjobs, including, but not limited to; waitress, bartender, teacher, real state agent, freelance writer, and gardener...each time hoping each leap would be the leap home. Sorry wrong show.
Niki, during this time, had given up singing, as it turns out she didn't really like opera after all and now had a pretty husky voice due to smoking, drinking, and yelling. She then attempted to work her way up through the Boston stand-up comedy ranks. After a few years of honing her wit on hecklers, drunks, and bachelorette parties, she hooked up with fellow URI music grad, Lainey Schooltree, and began their musical comedy duo act, The Steamy Bohemians, and their delinquent traveling variety show, Jerkus Circus.
Somewhere along the line, she met Dapper Dan Burke, started a glam retro cover band, and became a Marilyn Impersonator.
Niki caresses with her classically trained/abused voice then sucker punches with her bawdy patter and mastery of the absurd, not to mention the ridiculous amount of items she can pull out of her bra like Mary Poppins carpetbag.
She's appeared in the Las Vegas Comedy Festival (with the Steamy Bohemians), the Boston Comedy Festival, and was once told by Piers Morgan at the Hammerstein ballroom that she was "the most annoying woman [he'd] ever met.
With the Gold Diggers, (the Baddest Old Hollywood Jazz Cabaret Band around) she has opened for Frank Stallone, Gary Lewis (formerly of the Playboys), and Peter Tork (of the Monkees), and has been told by many fanny-pack wearing slot players after her gigs at Foxwoods Casino that she is totally going to make it."
Winner 2011 and 2013 Sexiest Musician, 2011 and 2012 Best Jazz act in New Englands Pulse Magazine and is Miss December in the Narragansett Beer 2013 Pinup Calendar. Catch her on AMC's Showville on May 30th!
