Pepe Raphael: Coffeeshop Conversations #71 - A new project, the Blondes and Pink Martini

By TOM D'ANTONI // A new vocal/tango duo and a unique concert on Friday, August 5.

Welcome back to the coffeeshop in which we conduct the OMN Coffeeshop Conversations, that being World Cup Coffee and Tea at NW 18th and Glisan in Portland, Oregon.

With me today is the mult-talented singer, dancer, band leader Pepe Raphael, he of the Bottle Blondes, Pink Martini and his new adventure Duo Kitty ~ Raphael. A vocal duo with Megan Yvonne.

They will be staging a unique and exciting tango vocal concert, "Dueling Tango Duos" with the famed Argentinians Duo Fuertes ~ Varnerin, making their United States debut, at the Old Church, Friday, August 5, 7:30pm, $20, tickets.

How are the Bottle Blondes? How does he feel about Pink Martini? And what about his long career as a ballet and modern dancer?

There’s nobody quite like Pape Raphael!

Watch Pepe and Megan rehearse in a car!
