Steve Martin's Top Five Musical Moments; Soon to Bring His Bluegrass to Kravis with Edie Brickell
Steve Martin is a multi-talented legend, in a way that shames even Justin Timberlake. The comic icon has proven himself as a king of the funnies and master of the banjo. His music prowess is so that when talking to friends about his performance at Kravis Center on May 24, the main question is "to be funny or to play music?" Followed of course by "How much are tickets?"
I've heard stories of the beloved Woody Allen coming to Kravis and breaking hearts by playing his much adored clarinet the entire show without even stopping to complain about something or tell a silly story. Lucky for Steve Martin fans (a.k.a. everyone), his performance will not fall into this lame-ass category.
The 67-year old first-time dad (believe it) will be accompanied by his band the Steep Canyon Rangers and Edie Brickell as they present a night of bluegrass music with a comedic twang. Before we dive into a banjo headbang, let's take a moment to look at the man himself. Here are our five best Steve Martin musical moments.
