The 501

Pink Martini


“Pink Martini is a rollicking around-the-world musical adventure… if the United Nations had a house band in 1962, hopefully we’d be that band.” — Thomas Lauderdale, bandleader/pianist

 

Pink Martini’s “little orchestra” draws inspiration from the romantic Hollywood musicals of the 1940s and ’50s and crosses genres to make an eclectic, modern sound. Their arrangements of Latin music, jazz, cabaret, and cinema scores come together in a sound that defies categorization but is guaranteed to get the audience up out of their seats and dancing in the aisles. This concert will include popular favorites from the band’s 25-year career, taking the audience on a musical trip around the world from France to Iran, Armenia to South Africa, and more.
