Old is New Again
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."
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.
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.
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.

foray into the great American songbook made both listeners
and dancers happy following dinner. Then, for those who didn't get
opportunity to trip the light fantastic, Bob Dalpe and
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
