Pink Martini Wows Boston, Again 3/10/08

Pink Martini played Boston's Opera House to a sold-out crowd.
They performed a fabulous 2 hour set that brought the audience
to a standing ovation & was rewarded with an additional 3 song
encore. If you're not familiar with this outstanding orchestra
here's a little taste of their performance of 'Eugene' the title song
from their latest CD. Play Video Thomas Lauderdale the band's
creator & leader wished his boyfriend Phil, who's adorable, a
Happy Birthday in the midst of the concert acknowledging how
Massachusetts is the only state where gay marriage is the law as
the audience erupted in cheers.... :) China Forbes, lead singer &
Cambridge native has released a solo CD & is currently touring
as well. For China info
Afterwards we went backstage & chatted with the band & spent
the next few hours catching up & trying to get some dish from their
appearance @ this year's Oscars Governor's Ball. :) After smart
cocktails back @ their hotel the tour buses whisked them off to NYC
where they'll be performing at Lincoln Center's Avery Fisher Hall
with the legendary actress Jane Powell. Should be an amazing thrill!!
They invited Marilyn & me to jump on the bus & join them...hmm
Maybe next time... :) For tour dates
