Our bandleader Thomas Lauderdale is a connoisseur of many a curiosity — ask him about snow globes, paint-by-numbers, View-Masters or Oregon history and you’re sure to learn more than you bargained for. Holiday music is no exception. When asked to curate a holiday playlist for our fans, Thomas sprung into action like a devoted elf on North Pole deadlines, yanking vinyl off shelves and unearthing boxes of old CDs and cassettes. After his initial selections were made, there were several rowdy hours of “Jingle Bells” dance offs and “Ave Maria” showdowns here at Pink Martini Headquarters. The result: a beautifully-balanced festive playlist from Thomas’s collection to yours.
If there is one thing Thomas loves even more than music, it’s good company. So find some jolly good fellas and bellas, and have yourselves a holly jolly holiday sing-a-long.
