Steve Martin is a comedian unlike any other in his generation. Martin was famous for his roles on SNL, his performance in The Step Father, and his character Navin R. Johnson from The Jerk. Not only has he made people laugh for 4 decades, but he is still performing live for thousands a year. Steve Martin plays banjo with The Steep Canyon Rangers. Martin’s band performs Bluegrass music, and like his comedy acts, the music is flawless.
According to the AP the comedian turned musician will play a show with his band in Washington D.C. for the 4th of July concert “A Capitol Fourth” on the White House’s west lawn. During the event, Martin and his group will play a new song titled “Me & Paul Revere,” in celebration of the patriot who was a messenger during the battle of Lexington and Concord.
Broadway star Kelli O’Hara, Josh Groban, Little Richard,American Idol winner Jordin Sparks, and Glee star Mathew Morrison will also be performing at the 4th of July event.
