Biography

Thomas Mack Lauderdale (Born July 14, 1970 in Oakland, California) is a musician, largely known for his work with the Portland-based band Pink Martini.

After seeing the Del Rubio Triplets on Pee-Wee Herman’s Christmas Special, Lauderdale flew them to Portland in October 1994 to do a series of concerts at retirement homes, nursing homes, and hospitals. After a week of performances and appearances, the Del Rubio Triplets performed at a fundraising concert at Cinema 21 in Northwest Portland. Stuck for an opening act for the group, Lauderdale threw on a Betsey Johnson cocktail dress, and joined by a bass player, a bongo player, and a singer, took to the stage as Pink Martini.

Pink Martini’s first concerts were often politically motivated, with performances at events for progressive causes such as the environment, affordable housing, civil rights, libraries, and public broadcasting.[3] The band remains committed to its progressive and political roots. FundFest is a biennial four-day concert series produced by the band to raise money and visibility for four different organizations. Past recipients include Reach Community Development, Oregon Public Broadcasting, the ALS Association of Oregon and SW Washington, Children’s Cancer Association, the Bicycle Transportation Alliance, Friends of Trees, and KBOO Community Radio.

Pink Martini has grown from four musicians to its current twelve. Singer China Forbes – who Lauderdale met at college – joined the band in 1995.
