Storm will be performing today in Pioneer Square with Pink Martini
Singer Storm Large began performing with Pink Martini in March 2011, when China Forbes took a leave of absence to undergo surgery on her vocal chords. Forbes made full recovery and both she and Large continue to perform with Pink Martini.
I always hoped we could find a way to collaborate. She is a brilliant, beautiful, charismatic and seductive star who would give Jayne Mansfield a run for her money. While we are disappointed that China is unable to perform with us full-time, I am delighted be able to introduce Storm Large to audiences.

Springtime has come today in Portland and Storm, a very public figure here, public enough to have her near life size nude portrait portrayed in public at one of NE Portland’s cultural landmark’s The Mississippi Studio’s.
Storm is performing downtown at Pioneer Square in Portland today with another local icon, Pink Martini, and China Forbes today in The Square
We have been following Storm’s career since she was part of Storm and The Balls back in the 90’s, through her Rockstar Supernova competition, her book and stage play era, and now in her collaboration with Pink Martini….she will always be a “rockstar” in our minds but as you can tell she is a complex and multi-talented individual with a broad range of talents
