Kate & The Crocodiles will perform a concert at Gesa Power House Theatre on Saturday, November 2 at 7:00 p.m. Doors open at 6:00. Please join us before the show. Proceeds will benefit The Health Center.
Kate & The Crocodiles are a Portland-based quartet who perform stunning indie rock originals and covers, early jazz and jazz standards, reinventions of ‘70s and ’80s rock as ballads, classical art songs mixed with rock (yes really), and other surprises from far and wide. If the spectrum sounds broad, it is all held together by a signature sound informed by classical training and a respectful blending of many genres. It’s like a warm conversation with a few good friends — good friends who just happen to like music as diverse as they are. When people ask what genre the band is, they say they couldn’t possibly choose just one. So the sky is the limit! It’s like nothing you’ve ever heard. An evening with Kate & The Crocodiles has been called “A perfect combination of musical talent and intimate, unforgettable entertainment.”
Kate & The Crocodiles are:
- Kate Morrison – a refreshing and innovative, classically-trained female vocalist with deep roots in Walla Walla who has recently performed as a guest vocalist with Pink Martini and the Utah Symphony.
- Craig Bidondo – a colorful, energetic, and soulful keyboardist
- Gavin Bondy – the intuitive trumpeter of Pink Martini
- Brent Follis – a truly world-class, globe-trotting drummer
