Sandy Kastel is a daughter of the footlights. Literally. Her father played saxophone in the Harry James Band and behind all the vocal greats and her Texas-born mother earned entertainment stripes as part of a popular sister song-and-dance act. Growing up in Las Vegas, Sandy sat in light booths watching Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Ann-Margret and dozens of others make magic. By 18, she was singing and touring the country professionally, and three years later she won the Miss Nevada crown in the Miss America Pageant. She’s been a fixture on the Vegas music scene ever since. Her new album—the third she’s recorded—is a country music gem called Indiana Rain. Six of the songs are her compositions. Now kids are sitting in light booths watching her.
