STAGE TUBE: UNDER THE STREETLAMP heads to Nashville for TPAC Performance

Under the Streetlamp will bring the sounds of early rock and roll, doo wop and Motown classics to an entirely new generation, reminding the original fans why great music is timeless. The four young men who make up Under the Streetlamp will bring their acclaimed new show to the Tennessee Performing Arts Center's James K. Polk Theater on Thursday, June 14 at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets are on sale now and available at, by calling (615) 782-4040, or visiting the TPAC Box Office at 505 Deaderick Street in downtown Nashville.

Formed in Chicago in 2010, Under the Streetlamp quickly earned a devoted local following and came to the attention of Charlie Blum who runs the Star Plaza Theatre in Merrillville, Indiana.

"I've put on and seen thousands of shows but was instantly struck by the boys clearly authentic love for this music, their amazing showmanship and rapport with one another, their numerous standing ovations and their total commitment to delivering these classics songs in a phenomenal fun filled way," Blum said. "They are having a big party and the audience is invited to join in. I noticed that their audience included all ages and everyone left the theatre smiling."

As a result of the huge following Under the Streetlamp has developed in the Chicago area, Blum confirmed that the first leg of their national tour will start in May and include performances in Chicago, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Nashville and New York.

All four members of Under the Streetlamp-Shonn Wiley, Michael Cunio, Michael Ingersoll and Christopher Kale Jones-appeared at one time or another in the Chicago or national company of Jersey Boys.

"When we all started doing cabaret together in the Chicago area, we realized that the audience was responding not just to these great songs but the synergy between the four of us," explains Michael Ingersoll.
