“The guys in Pink Martini are very supportive. After all, everybody has a thing they battle with—diabetes, other health issues—but we come together and talk about how we’re doing. Aside from playing wonderful music and being in amazing places, it’s a family environment. Everybody cares about each other.” – Anthony Jones, drummer

Our beloved drummer Anthony Jones was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis when he was twenty-one but hasn’t had a single MS relapse since he joined Pink Martini in early 2012. Earlier this month at Pink Martini Headquarters, The Oregon Chapter of the National MS Society hosted “Pink Martini Wears Orange:” a benefit that celebrated the Society’s supporters and also paid tribute to Anthony.
