Pink Martini Wows Boston, Again 3/10/08

By Charlotte Robinson, February 17, 2008
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
