OBF's first-ever concert at the beautiful Cuthbert Amphitheatre Sunday, July 1 features one of our state's great natural resources: Pink Martini! And another first: making her Eugene debut with the band is lead singer Storm Large.
Storm Large fills in for China Forbes, who's taking this tour off to spend some summer with her little one. Storm's been busy too: her new book Crazy Enough was an Oprah book of the week, she starred in Randy Newman's Harps and Angels at the Mark Taper Forum in LA, and will travel to Carnegie Hall performing Kurt Weill's "Seven Deadly Sins" with the Oregon Symphony.
In 2002 she moved to Portland, and with her band The Balls went from wild club act to cult status. In 2006 she was tapped to appear on CBS’ reality show Rockstar: Supernova – a three-month TV blitz that gained her worldwide fame – and in late 2006 her single “Ladylike” debuted at No. 5 on the hot singles chart in Billboard magazine. And, in case you're wondering, that's her real name.
