Lensic Presents

STORM LARGE

October 26, 2018, at 7:30 pm


Santa Fe, NM—The Lensic proudly presents powerhouse vocalist Storm Large and her band, Le Bonheur, on Friday, October 26, 2018, at 7:30 pm.

Portland-based Large has toured with Pink Martini and sung to a sold-out Carnegie Hall. But it’s with her loyal and fearless band, Le Bonheur, that she grabs audiences by the lapels and refuses to let go. Large’s fierce and fiery show includes tunes from the Great American Songbook, Broadway tear-jerkers, rock-goddess anthems, and some of her own gorgeous originals.

Large shot to national prominence in 2006, when her bold voice and stage presence made her a semi-finalist on the CBS series Rock Star: Supernova. She went on to tour the world, singing in seventeen different languages and developing a dedicated fan base that has only grown as she’s held tight to her rock-and-roll roots while expanding into theater, cabaret, and more.

When not on stage with Le Bonheur, Large performs with some of the greatest symphonies in the world. Highlights of her 2017-18 season included debuts with the San Francisco, Pittsburgh, Phoenix, Vancouver, Jacksonville, and RTÉ National Symphonies, as well as return engagements with the Houston, Toronto, and Toledo Symphonies.

Since 2011, she has also toured as a guest vocalist with Pink Martini. Large was the featured vocalist at the band’s Lensic concerts in 2011 and 2014, and she sang on Pink Martini’s 2013 album, Get Happy.  

In addition to her musical success, Large has won praise for her work as an actor and writer. Crazy Enough, her autobiographical musical memoir, played a 21-week sold-out run in Portland in 2009. She went on to perform a cabaret version of the show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the Adelaide Festival in Australia, and Joe’s Pub in New York. Her memoir, also titled Crazy Enough, was released by Simon and Schuster in 2012 and named an Oprah Book of the Week. It was also awarded the 2013 Oregon Book Award for Creative Nonfiction.

Please note: Storm Large has a delightfully wicked sense of humor and she’s known for her edgy, often bawdy stage banter. Because this show will include adult language and humor, we recommend it for mature audience members only.
