Pink Martini Concert

When you get a ‘you must go see’ concert recommendation from trusted musically knowledgeable friends – what is a hard core Boomer to do? YOU GO.

That’s how I found myself at the Kravis Center on January 21st at the Pink Martini Concert. They were great. The guy sitting next to me asked me if I was a big fan of theirs. I told him before yesterday I had never heard of them! He thought that was pretty funny. In fact we hit it off so well, I am meeting him for dinner next Tuesday. Yes he is a boomer.

I absolutely loved them! I can truly say they are probably the best musicians I have ever heard in concert.  I felt the same way I often do when I am meditating except  latin like, jazzy music was playing.

Pink Martini is a group of 10-12 musicians from Portland Oregon.  Thomas Lauderdale the band leader formed the group in 1994. They perform a multilingual repertoire drawing upon some of the most famous music from countries all across the globe – a lot of the music dates back to the 1960’s.

You can support them directly by purchasing their music at their online store @

If you want to learn more about them or see if they will be performing any time soon anywhere near you go to their website (

  1. Pink Martini, Ohhh I am so jealous. Madonna wasn’t/isn’t on my bucket list but I’ve followed Pink Martini for years. Agree, wonderful music. Susan
