It’s an unlikely combination: one band, one concert, 25 languages sung in a style that defies genre and classification. What is it? A band called Pink Martini, founded by Thomas Lauderdale in Portland, Oregon over 25 years ago. From its happenstance roots (a no-show act caused Thomas to jump into action) to a decades-long legacy, Pink Martini has practically created a genre for itself, and it’s working. “It’s not every night that an audience of teens, parents and grandparents can kick up its heels together in a conga line around the mezzanine at Roy Thomson Hall,” writes the Toronto Star. From the Telegram, “Pink Martini takes the audience on dazzling ride!” What’s their secret? To audiences, it’s the joy and energy that Pink Martini brings to every performance. When times are tough and the world is getting you down, Pink Martini is here to give you a reason to smile and move your feet.
