Pink Martini

I don’t want to get bored: excellent 'global' cocktail!

Pink Martini, with songstress China Forbes, is coming to AB on 31 May 2018!

Pink Martini is the brainchild of pianist Thomas Lauderdale (Portland, Oregon) who established a ‘small band’ in 1994 to improve the quality of the music during meeting pauses. A year later Thomas invited Harvard study companion China Forbes to join Pink Martini as singer/composer. The first song that they wrote together was an instant success in France. ‘Sympathique’ was nominated for ‘song of the year’ and ‘newcomer of the year’ at France’s Victoires de la Musique Awards. This song’s creed (‘Je ne veux pas travailler’) is still used as a mantra during strikes in France.



Fantastische groep maar veel te warm in de zaal. Pink Martini komen terug naar België en ditmaal in openluchttheater in Deurne Antwerpen op 23 juli 2019. Daar zal het niet te warm zijn
And yes, I agree, the airco sucks...
An incredibly magic event with good wibes and joy for music. I absolutely loved it and hope PM is coming back soon.
Ce fut une merveilleuse soirée au top! Quel groupe! Quelle générosité avec le public! China Forbes a une voix sublime et un charisme ahurissant. Les musiciens sont plus que doués! Encore merci pour ce grand show!
Amazing artists! I truly appreciated the interaction with the audience, their voice and the diversity of the songs, styles and instruments. I would go to see them again in a heartbeat. I have to echo the lack of air in the venue: the air conditioning was missing and you could see the artists were suffering from it as well as the audience.
Hi. This was indeed a great concert even though the airconditioning in the concert room was INEXISTENT! This is really a pitty and also a shame, especially when the singer is also complaining. I would expect from AB a much better organisation and care for the confort of the audience and the singer. Thanks and please take care of this next time.
Un concert au TOP, avec une superbe ambiance! En ce qui concerne la salle, une chaleur au TOP également et là, c'est un assez gênant.
Pink Martini heeft mijn verwachtingen overtroffen. Mooi concert, prachtige artiesten en de special guest vocalist overtreffende trap. Dat doet niets onder van de bijzondere zangkwaliteiten van China Forbes. Ook prachtig hoe zij met het publiek omgaan. Zij maken er één geheel van.
Bijzonder leuk concert. In het begin stond het geluid niet goed maar werd snel geregeld. TOP. De zaal heeft dringend een facelift nodig.(geluid en HVAC ) Cooling is niet goed maar erbarmelijk. Ik heb me ernstig gestoord aan het soort volkje dat er een praatcafé van heeft gemaakt. SHAME ON YOU. Pink Martini graag terug !
Pink Martini 4 stars, excellent as always. On the other hand AB needs to be refurbished urgently!!!! Unacceptable venue!!! Bands should refused to perform in venues like AB.....Concert hall in the "heart of Europe".... a big joke!!!
Pink Martini was excellent but the venue was unacceptable! You shouldnt be allowed to host events without proper ventilation and airconditioning. I will never come back to AB.
Pink Martini zoals altijd magnifiek, zinderende temperatuur niet alleen te danken aan muziek,
