On Oct. 12, Michael Feinstein, five-time Grammy nominee, takes the stage with vocal powerhouse Storm Large to present “Shaken And Stirred,” a tribute to a host of favorite artists. The music selections pay tribute to a wide range of artists such as Al Green, Frank Sinatra, Bill Haley, Nat King Cole, Stevie Wonder and many others.

Instead of the set list being defined by an era or style, they will be personally selected by Michael Feinstein and performed with a retro showmanship style. The evening features some of the most endearing and lasting songs ever written; songs that are begging to be rediscovered and celebrated once again.

Michael Feinstein, ambassador of the Great American Songbook, has built a career over the last three decades bringing America’s music to the world. In addition to his accolades, Feinstein has made appearances at iconic venues such as the White House, Buckingham Palace, the Hollywood Bowl, Carnegie Hall and Sydney Opera House. Feinstein last performed on the Cobb Great Hall ten years ago.

Storm Large is a musician, actor, playwright and author. She built her fan base after placing as a semi-finalist on the CBS show “Rock Star: Supernova.” The New York Times called her “sensational” after her Carnegie Hall debut with the Detroit Symphony in 2013.

As a vocalist with the pop band Pink Martini, Large has played to sold-out concerts with the National Symphony Orchestra at The Kennedy Center. She continues to tour with the band both nationally and internationally. Large recently performed at the Wharton Center’s Donor Concert in 2018.
