Michael Feinstein: Shaken & Stirred featuring Storm Large
Five-time GRAMMY nominee and NJPAC favorite Michael Feinstein salutes the greatest American Songbook and pop artists in tandem with the sensational vocalist Storm Large.
Shaken & Stirred pays tribute to a wide range of talents, such as Al Green, Frank Sinatra, Bill Haley, Nat King Cole, James Taylor, Chicago, Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson, Donny Hathaway and many others. Accompanied by a five-piece band, with music spanning the Great American Songbook to the era of James Bond and Mad Men, the duo will delight you with their brilliant singing and amusing anecdotes.
For three decades now, Michael Feinstein has been a leading ambassador of the Great American Songbook, bringing the greatest American standards to a grateful world. From recordings that have earned him five GRAMMY Award nods to his Emmy-nominated specials on PBS, his acclaimed NPR series, and concerts spanning the globe, Feinstein’s combined work as performer, educator and archivist has helped define him as one of the most important popular musical forces of our time.
“Mr. Feinstein displays an undiminished passion for the American songbook and the show-business tradition,” says The New York Times. “Without (his) tireless efforts as a performer and historian, how vital would that tradition be today?”
Musician, actor and author Storm Large shot to national prominence in 2006 as a finalist on the CBS show Rock Star: Supernova and made her debut as a guest vocalist with the band Pink Martini in 2011, singing four sold-out concerts with the National Symphony Orchestra at the Kennedy Center. She has sung with k.d. lang, Rufus Wainwright and George Clinton, among others. Her memoir, Crazy Enough (2012), was named Oprah’s Book of the Week and she is featured in the film Rid of Me.
The American Song series at NJPAC is presented, in part, through the generous support of the Blanche and Irving Laurie Foundation, the David S. Steiner and Sylvia Steiner Charitable Trust, and the Joan and Allen Bildner Family Fund.
NICO Kitchen + Bar will be open for this performance.
