Storm Large: LOVE, STORM - MARCH 21 & 22 AT 7:00 PM

 

Storm Large has made a name for herself from tours with Pink Martini to orchestral appearances at Carnegie Hall to the television stage of "America's Got Talent." But it is with her loyal and fearless band, Le Bonheur, that she grabs audiences by the lapels and refuses to let go. Love, Storm is a new show featuring a playlist of songs by pop luminaries, rock goddesses, Storm's fiery originals, and much more. The show is-after so much time apart-a love letter from Storm to her fans to tell them how much she's missed them.

ACCENT: THE BEST IN A CAPPELLA - MARCH 21 AT 9:30 PM

 

In the increasingly popular world of a cappella singing groups, Accent has carved out its own niche. Inspired by the wizardly jazz harmonies of TAKE 6 and, before them, The Hi-Lo's, the six singers of Accent, all of them accomplished arrangers and instrumentalists in their own right, are taking their love of close-harmony jazz singing - the denser and more intricate the better - as far as it can go.

 

The improbable meeting of Jean-Baptiste ("JB") Craipeau (France), Simon Åkesson (Sweden), Danny Fong (Canada), Andrew Kesler (Canada), James Rose (England), and Evan Sanders (USA), six self-described "jazz vocal nerds," could have happened only in the age of social media. After becoming long-distance fans of each other's multi-tracked videos on YouTube, they joined forces in 2011, collaborating online on songs and videos.

 

Since then, they have released five albums, performed at the London A Cappella Festival, played dates across Europe, North America and Asia, and were featured in 2 sold-out Christmas shows at London's Royal Albert Hall. Their singular blend and arrangements have been acclaimed by a cappella devotees and fellow musicians alike, including Cedric Dent of TAKE 6 and Clark Burroughs of The Hi-Lo's.

 

$35 cover charge ($40 with fees). $60 premium seating ($67.50 with fees). $25 food & beverage minimum.

 

TAKE3: THE GENRE SMASHING TRIO WHERE BACH AND BIEBER COLLIDE - MARCH 22 AT 9:30 PM

If you haven't seen them yet, you have definitely heard them; their feature on Netflix's soundtrack for "The Witcher" has topped the charts worldwide and has now been released by Sony. Known for combining the refinement of a rigorous classical music background with rock-star charisma, TAKE3 serves up your favorite hits from Bach and Beethoven to Billy Joel and Bieber, reimagined. As if that weren't enough, for one night only, TAKE3 teams up with Yanni's vocal star, Lauren Jelencovich, who has sung in over 60 countries on the world's biggest stages, so be prepared for a sprinkling of Broadway classics in the mix.
