I was so excited to welcome in 2015 with my fellow fans of Pink Martini, Kim Holt and Spring Halland. We love Pink Martini, but the Walt Disney Concert Hall is a fabulous place to hear them (or any other music. We caught a glimpse of the Los Angeles Grand Park NYE Celebration and the giant projections onto the iconic City Hall building. We enjoyed our champagne and tailgate picnic in the warm parking garage (yeah - 70 degrees while outside was closer to freezing).
If you have never heard of Pink Martini, it is challenging to explain the music they perform. Of course I was listening to them while writing this. Looking at the genres listed in iTunes you can find a single song listed with classical, jazz, Latin and lounge and then another would be classical, African and disco. I think I finally have a was to explain them to the Pink Martini Newbie. They a genre-blending multicultural musical integration. Got it? No. Well, go listen and see for yourself.
