What You'll Get
Smooth jazz is the sound of sophistication, unlike rough jazz, which is the sound of Louis Armstrong blasting chili out of his trumpet. Lend your ear to upscale scales with this deal to see Pink Martini, presented by Grog Shop at the State Theatre in Playhouse Square. For $25, you get one ticket for seating in dress circle B on Thursday, May 10, at 8 p.m. (a $50 value, including all fees).
Envisioning themselves as the house band of the United Nations in 1962, Pink Martini’s 12 musicians perform an eclectic songbook of pieces drawn from globe-spanning jams, American lounge tunes, and jazz. Guest vocalist Storm Large, who has appeared on the reality show Rock Star: Supernova, takes over the lead-singing reins for Pink Martini’s summer tour. With a style described as “powerful, at times operatic” by the Guardian, Large fills the gap left by former singer China Forbes and her classy charisma and potent purr. Originally opened in 1921 as a vaudeville house where Fred Astaire and Judy Garland once dropped jaws, the lavish State Theatre aligns with Pink Martini’s elegant visions of jet-setting cocktail parties.
