If the United Nations had a house band in 1962, Pink Martini would be that band. In the words of bandleader/pianist Thomas Lauderdale, “Pink Martini is a rollicking, around-the-world musical adventure.” With sounds and influences spanning countries, cultures, and time itself, categorizing Pink Martini is almost impossible. One moment you’ll feel like you’re in the middle of a samba parade in Rio, and the next, you’re in a 1930s French music hall or a palazzo in Napoli.
Since becoming an overnight sensation with the ennui-infused single “Sympathique” over 20 years ago, they’ve intoxicated audiences with songs in 25 languages on six continents, including three sold-out trips to Anchorage. Now they’re back for another round with pitch-perfect lead singer China Forbes.
Whet your appetite for wanderlust with Pink Martini – and drink in every note.
