There had been some changes at the bowl since last season. I was surprised to see the restrooms completely re-done. Not just new paint, it appeared they had ripped out everything old and revamped it all right down to the floor plan. Yes, I was impressed by the restrooms. LOL
Though we have seen many Pink Martini concerts, it had been a while and we were not even aware they had brought in a second vocalist. Storm Large joined the group in 2011 when China Forbes had surgery on her vocal cords and was unable to sing. China has since made a full recovery, and the group has maintained the relationship with Storm, and we were very fortunate to have both voclists perform during this show.
I was a bit dubious when I heard about a second vocalist. I mean, really, China Forbes IS Pink Martini. When I heard Storm sing, my doubts faded away. She is amazing and fit the group almost perfectly. The voice was a perfect match for this group, but Storm also sports a HUGE tattoo across her back that says LOVER, and sported a backless dress to show it off. This is not the classy, neat and immaculate image we are used to from Pink Martini.
This is a photo from Storm's my space page showing the tatoo.
I don't think this was their best performance, I was not as mesmerized as I had been at previous concerts, but still I was definitely well entertained and will seek them out again for sure.
And also I was amused at the barefoot Storm Large during the finale.
