Storm Large
Presented by: Performing Arts Fort Worth
Performance to be held at McDavid Studio
Dates / Times:
Friday, 09/19/2014 7:30 PM
Information:  
Storm Large shot to national prominence in 2006 as a finalist on the CBS show Rock Star: Supernova, where, as is so true in so many reality TV shows, she lost the competition itself and yet came away with a fan base that follows her to this day.

Born in Massachusetts, yet honing her skills in rock clubs up and down the West Coast, Storm spent the 1990s singing in various bands in and around the Bay Area. Tired of the scene, she moved to Portland to pursue a new career in the culinary arts. A last-minute cancellation in 2002 at a Portland club turned into a standing Wednesday night engagement for Storm and her band. It wasn't long before Storm had a cult-like following in Portland, and a renewed career that was about to be launched onto the international stage.

Storm made her debut as guest vocalist with the band Pink Martini in April 2011, singing four sold-out concerts with the National Symphony Orchestra at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC. Storm has also sung with celebrated punk auteur John Doe, singer/songwriter Rufus Wainwright, and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer George Clinton. In 2010, she made her first foray into the orchestral world with the Oregon Symphony, and has returned for sold out performances each year thereafter. Storm made her Carnegie Hall debut in May 2013, singing Weill's Seven Deadly Sins with the Detroit Symphony as part of the Spring for Music festival. The New York Times called her "sensational."

Jackopierce is one of the most popular pop-rock bands from the North Texas area. The two-man group, made up of Jack O'Neill and Cary Pierce, spent the late '80s and early '90s touring the country, releasing records for labels big and small and helping spur interest in the North Texas music scene.

After going their separate ways in 1997, the two reformed Jackopierce in 2002, commemorating the event with a string of sold-out shows. Since then, the guys have released more albums and continue to tour near and far.

Information:  
"Hilarious" is the only way to describe THE MALE INTELLECT: AN OXYMORON? You will laugh non-stop for 90 minutes as Robert Dubac ransacks his brain to answer the age old question: "What do women want?" All while drinking a beer.

Dubac has crafted an hysterical one-man multi-character show that tackles the babble of the sexes with precision and wit. With a shrug of his shoulders or a crook of his neck, Robert Dubac seamlessly transforms himself into five alter egos - each offering their own brand of misguided advice on how to straddle the gender gap.

Hailed by critics and audiences alike, THE MALE INTELLECT: AN OXYMORON? is a rare thing - a clever combination of theater and stand-up comedy that is laugh-out-loud funny, provocative and insightful all at once.

There are two types of people who should rush and see it - men and women!
