Pink Martini

When: Thu., July 16, 7:30 p.m. 2015

It’s not often you find a musical act that has won multiple awards in France (Best New Artist and Song of the Year to name a few), topped pop charts in Japan, contributed to film soundtracks in Italy and received incredible reviews in America for a holiday album. But it's not often you find a band like Pink Martini. Their most recent album, 2014’s Dream a Little Dream, features the famous vocal group The Von Trapps. It combines Latin-infused jazz and lounge with moving vocal harmonies. One of the album’s standout tracks, “The Lonely Goatherd,” features an unlikely combination. While the Von Trapps provide some soothing backing vocals, raspy-voiced Wayne Newton contributes a colorful narrative about a lonely little girl stuck in the goatherd. It’s symbolic of just how exotic the band’s sound can be. For the current tour, expect the band to play music from its extensive discography.
