Pepe Raphael: A delight with or without the Bottle Blondes / Coffeeshop Conversations @ Artichoke Music #350

By TOM D'ANTONI // Pepe talks about his current ensemble The Vegan Carnivores and....well, everything including his handlebar moustache.

Welcome back to the Café in Artichoke Music. I’m Tom D’Antoni. Sitting across from me is Pepe Raphael, a singer and dancer who may be best known for his Pepe and the Bottle Blondes ensemble.

He was a member of Pink Martini too. He’s pretty much legendary around here and even more so since he added a spectacular handlebar moustache.

While keeping the Bottle Blondes always at the ready, his main project at the moment is a trio by the name of the Vegan Carnivores.

Yeah, I know. I don’t know what it means either. We’ll find out.

We’ll get to the bottom of that and a lot more in the life of Pepe Raphael.
