On Saturday May 23 actor/singer Bill A.

The packed SRO crowd would surely agree. Backed by three stellar musicians, musical director Paul McDonald at the keys, Steve Pemberton on drums and Kurt Smith on bass - known as Paul McDonald the A Players - for 90 minutes the 'joint was really jumpin' '.

by Don Grigware - Apr 21, 2015

Actor Reed Shannon is currently on tour with Motown the Musical playing Young Berry Gordy, Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson.

I know Jackson performed young but I'm not sure about Little Stevie Wonder. (more...)
