Kate & The Crocodiles will perform a concert at Gesa Power House Theatre on Saturday, July 22 at 7 p.m. to benefit Trilogy Recovery Community.
Kate & The Crocodiles is a Portland-based trio that presents compelling indie rock originals and covers mixed with early jazz, classical art song and reinventions of classic rock. If the spectrum sounds broad, it is all held together by a signature sound informed by classical sensibilities and a respectful blending of the genres. It’s like a warm conversation with a good friend.
The band is made up of Kate Morrison, a refreshing and innovative classically-trained vocalist and player of generally small instruments (ukulele, toy drums, etc.), performing as a guest vocalist with Pink Martini, the Oregon East Symphony and Utah Symphony; Craig Bidondo, a colorful, energetic and soulful keyboardist; Gavin Bondy, the intuitive trumpeter of Pink Martini.
An evening with Kate & The Crocodiles has been called “A perfect combination of musical talent and intimate, unforgettable entertainment.”
With some variation, the instrumentation goes like this:
Craig Bidondo — keyboards
Gavin Bondy — brass
Kate Morrison — vocals, strings … maybe a toy drum set?
Trilogy Recovery Community offers life-changing support and hope to youth, adults, and families in the Walla Walla Valley on their paths of recovery from addiction or substance misuse.
General admission tickets are $50 ($25 for students) and are available online or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500.
