A Pink Martini Valentine

I’ve followed Pink Martini since day one back in the 90s, and seeing them at the Kennedy Center was the coolest of all.  We were able to go thanks to Gavin Bondy, who got us in to the sold-out concert. I’ve been doing his trumpet work for 20 years and it’s always a pleasure to hear him play. It’s serious music with a twist of fun. Some highlights:

Members of the audience dancing the Cha-Cha-Cha on stage
A duet with Thomas Lauderdale by a random person from the crowd
A guest apperance by Portland native, Ari Shapiro
And a rousing rendition of “Donde Estas Yolanda,” namesake of my valentine

Sorry about the quality of the photo, I must have been jammin’ to the music…
