Storm Large has been called a lot of things: A young Bette Midler, a six foot Vargas pinup come to life....mostly she gets called a force of nature, and since Storm Large is her real name, it certainly fits. A performer of Wikepedian proportions, Storm has been singing and slinging inappropriate banter around the globe for two decades. A rock singer by trade, she also dons a gown and heels, wowing symphony audiences around the world, on her own and with Pink Martini. Now and then she dabbles in musical theatre, TV and film, (Randy Newman's revue, "Harps And Angels" with Katey Sagal and Michael McKean, her first feature, “Rid Of Me” out in select theatres now, she was also runner up in the CBS singing contest; "Rockstar Supernova"). In all her free time, she wrote a memoir, “Crazy Enough” released in January, 2012, (Free Press, Simon and Schuster), which just won the Oregon Book Award for creative non fiction. ("Crazy Enough" is also a rock musical, that she has performed on the west coast, Europe and Australia, set for a New York production in the future). It is safe to say, the girl has been around the block. But she has never once set foot in Carnegie Hall, let alone performed there. Now she gets to sing Kurt Weill's "Seven Deadly Sins" with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra on that storied stage, and Storm can't think of a better way to celebrate, than jumping on her other favorite stage in NYC, Joe's Pub!
You don't want to miss the victory lap of this wild child gone good, going great. See you out there.
