Famous! They are just like us! If there’s one thing that unites the human race as one, we all love to do karaoke. But if you’re rich and famous, you can hire a jazz combo to back you up while you do a medley of some of your favorite songs from when you were a young actor struggling to make your screen debut in Ray Bradbury Presents. What Jeff Goldblum did, with Variety sharing, via his Twitter account, a video of the former Dr. Ian Malcolm with his backing band, the Mildred Snitzer Orchestra, laughing through “Footloose” and “Highway to the Danger Zone” at the Sun Rose venue of the Angels.
Goldblum has been performing with the Mildred Snitzer Orchestra for years, having established himself with a residency at the Dresden Jazz Lounge in the Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles. He has also taken his performance to clubs and concert halls across the country and sharing festival stages with disparate musical acts like Hurray for the Riff Raff and Neil Young.
The act consists of a bop band backing Goldblum as he plays the piano and jumps around the stage singing and joking with the crowd. While the appeal is obviously the star of Gen X favorite movies like Jurassic Park Y Independence Daythe band is a solid mix of seasoned professionals, and Goldblum’s playful joy in performing in front of a live crowd makes for a lively night of entertainment.
Though there don’t seem to be any more Goldblum shows on the horizon, according to the live music fansite. BrooklynVegan the band spent late 2021 and early 2022 touring concert venues in select cities. Most importantly, Goldblum keeps it… Mercilessly.
