Last night at the Pantages theater in Tacoma, I got to sip (along with a SOLD OUT crowd) Portland's eclectic, modern, jazzy, 50's inspired band, Pink Martini. It was delicious. The vocals and musicians were truly spectacular often translating their toe tappin' music into a world affair. Songs were sung in Italian, Spanish, French, and even Turkish. The joint was jumping and it was exciting to see downtown so alive and moving.
Here are a couple of samples of their music. I dare you NOT to move to the beat. And to think, this band is from these parts, the Great Northwest! So cool. Way to kick off the 2009-2010 theater season, Broadway Center of the Performing Arts!
