People are always amazed at the "huge voice" that comes out of this "petite package". She is truly commanding in formal arenas and has earned kudos for her performances at Boston's Hatch Shell, as well as other festivals and music conferences, including Rockrgrl in Seattle, NEMO in Boston, Crossroads in Memphis and MobFest in Chicago.

Vykki has shared the stage with Lynyrd Skynyrd, Jonny Lang, Les Paul, Tom Hambridge, Max Creek, the Indigo Girls, Cyndi Lauper, Ronnie Earl, Susan Tedeschi and CJ Chenier among others.
