What's Old is New Again


THERE'S SOMETHING about Sinatra and a good martini that sets the world right. So how could I pass up a feature on a couple of "local cats" like the Martini Brothers? 
The "brothers," aka Grand Lake residents Bob Dalpe and "Mr. Rick" Fishman, have been promoting what they call the martini culture for years. But are the old standards back in vogue again? Not so's you'd notice, says Mr. Rick. "I don't see it as a hip new thing, but it seems to have really become the mainstream for the cocktail culture over the past 12 years." 
Still, finding a place for their band to play locally hasn't been easy. "We've been really involved in the whole swing thing in the Bay Area, playing at places like the Top of The Mark and the Compass Rose, but there's no place to play in Oakland," Mr. Rick laments. 
But the Martini Brothers have landed a groovy gig at one of the swankiest spots in San Francisco -- Le Colonial. "It's an upscale French Vietnamese Restaurant with long rattan bars and a lot of sophistication," says Mr. Rick, who has his six-piece combo playing there from 7:30 to 10:30 p.m. Thursday nights. 
I caught their act the other night and believe me -- it's as smooth as a hot toddy in winter. The band really draws a crowd, too, since so many people are dying to go out where they can dance and drink and get dressed up. For this, San Francisco seems like the perfect spot.

Napa Valley Wine Auction's 2004
"Friday night's Bubble Ball was a huge success, what with Ron Siegel's
exceptional dinner fare and bang-up show by Michael Feinstein, keeper
of the Tin Pan Alley flame.
Feinstein's foray into the great American songbook made both listeners
and dancers happy following dinner. Then, for those who didn't get much
opportunity to trip the light fantastic, Bob Dalpe and the Martini
Brothers
, snappily attired in complementary sky blue and yellow, served up an alfresco big band set that would have made
Ol' Blues Eyes quite happy.

"Night On The Barbary Coast"

October 15, 1999

Dear Mr. Rick and Brothers Martini:

The party may be over, but the memories definitely will linger on. You not only helped us celebrate our past history, but your performance in the Barbary Coast Cabaret made history as well.

There is nothing more satisfying than good danceable music at the right time of the evening. Your group was great, and we appreciate the energy, talent and good humor you brought to the evening.

Take a collective bow! We look forward to working with you again.

Sincerely, Jean McClathy
Night of the Barbary Coast Chairman
