Pink Martini bandleader Thomas Lauderdale originally thought he’d enter politics and run for mayor of his hometown, Portland, Oregon.

But as he started going to fundraisers, he realized that the music most politicians played at their events was crap. He figured he could come up with something better, and he put together a self-described “little orchestra” he dubbed Pink Martini.



Twenty years on, the group is an international sensation that plays a unique mix of lounge music, jazz and classical.

On tour in support of a new studio album, the group along with lead singer China Forbes will perform on March 8 at the Cleveland Masonic Auditorium. Tickets for the concert go on sale at noon on Friday through Ticketfly and the Grog Shop box office. Call 216-321-5588 for more info.
