EVANS AND ROGERS
 

Variety Artists – Sharon Evans and Rick Rogers
Vaudeville style musical comedy/song and dance

      Called “vaudeville sensations” by Vanity Fair Magazine, the musical comedy team of Evans and Rogers is Hollywood’s best kept secret.  Since their beginnings in 2006, Sharon Evans and Rick Rogers have performed for some of Hollywood’s best and brightest stars and personalities.
    The combined talents, experience and creativity of Sharon Evans and Rick Rogers have given birth to a style of variety entertainment uncommon in the industry today.  As purveyors of such rarities as vocal ragtime and the vintage songs of Tin-Pan-Alley, they bring a rare and authentic vitality to stage and screen.  Aside from appearances at local venues, festivals and in the occasional film, Evans and Rogers write and produce their own variety shows, presenting their unique brand of musical comedy and some of the best performers on stage in the Los Angeles area.   Their latest CD is titled Standing Right Beside a Rainbow.
