I'm so excited to see Pink Martini this weekend at the McCallum Theatre in Palm Desert!
Pink Martini is one of my favorite bands in the world! Pink Martini with singer China Forbes...
Drawing inspiration from music from all over the world — crossing genres of classical, jazz and old-fashioned pop — Pink Martini's diverse repertoire is a blend influenced by Cole Porter and Duke Ellington, Tito Puente and Xavier Cugat, as well as Argentine tango, Brazilian samba, Italian folk, Asian and romantic Hollywood musicals of the 1940s and '50s.
According to bandleader/pianist Thomas Lauderdale, "If the United Nations had a house band in 1962, Pink Martini would be that band."
I introduced some of my friends to Pink Martini's, "HEY EUGENE" a few years ago... and it's one of those songs you can play over and over. It just keeps getting better!
