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 good friend—and at times, it’s like world-class music meets stand-up comedy because these fun four have what may be considered almost too much fun performing together. An evening with Kate & The Crocodiles is an intimate, unforgettable treasure.
