MUSIC

Thursday January 10th at 9:30PM on CBS Stokes premiered on his new TV show "Fam" -a brand-new 1/2 hour sitcom. He plays "Walt" - a perfect father, wine connoisseur and Broadway Star(!). 

 

Stokes' TV wife is played by fellow Broadway Alum Sheryl Lee Ralph (Dreamgirls and Thoroughly Modern Millie).  The show also stars Nina Dobrev (Vampire Diaries), Tone Bell, Odessa Adlon and Gary Cole. We shot 13 episodes last fall.  If you need some laughs and enjoy good writing with some pretty quirky characters, this is the show for you, so every Thursday on CBS and fall in love with his new Fam!  #Fam

This Saturday, January 12, Stokes will be sitting in for a few songs with the Tedd Firth Trio at Birdland Jazz club at 7PM  in NYC.  Tedd and Stokes have been working together for over 10 years now  and Stokes calls him "One of the best pianists on the planet. He is an incredibly creative and accomplished jazz soloist, accompanist, orchestrator, arranger AND he's a great guy to boot".   The other two members of Tedd's outstanding trio are Drummer Mark McLean and Bassist David Finck.
