Springfield rocketed to fame with pop radio favorites like “Jessie’s Girl,” “Don’t Talk to Strangers” and “Love Somebody” and maintained Hollywood status through notable acting (roles in the film “Ricki and the Flash” and TV’s True Detective,” “Supernatural” and “American Horror Story”). His most recent album, “Orchestrating My Life,” was released in April.
Marx celebrates years of success as a songwriter, singer and producer thanks to Top 5 singles like “Hold on to the Nights,” “Right Here Waiting,” “Satisfied” and “Don’t Mean Nothing,” the latter of which earned him a Grammy Award. With more than 30 million albums sold worldwide, Marx’s record-breaking career offers numerous highlights for his set.
