ADA, Okla. – Vocalists from across Oklahoma will join the Jae L. and the Crossover band 7 p.m., Saturday, April 21, on the historic McSwain Theatre stage, 130 W. Main Street.

For nearly 100 years the McSwain Theatre has offered a compelling variety of entertainment, including silent films, Vaudeville acts and live musicals. More recently, the Jae L. and Crossover show has helped the McSwain stage become a Branson-style showcase of local vocalists.

Special guests include: Missy Rude and Wiley Winters from Pauls Valley, Annie Weast from Stratford, Callie Burns from Bennington, Denmaun Hill from Shawnee and Dale Ozment from Tecumseh.

This month’s vocalists have planned performances of favorites like Queen’s “Crazy Little Thing Called Love,” LeAnn Rimes’ “Blue” (originally by Bill Mack), “Wagon Wheel” made popular by Darius Rucker and Old Crow Medicine Show, Josh Turner’s “Your Man,” Allison Moorer’s “A Soft Place to Fall” and Jo Dee Messina’s “Because You Love Me,” among others.

Jae L. and Crossover shows encourage audience participation and interaction. The band routinely takes requests and suggestions from the audience. Performances span many genres, from country to classic hits.

Crossover musicians have decades of combined experience performing with artists who specialize in all genres of music. Band members include Jae L Stilwell, Jody Teeter, Jeff Donaldson, Deni Stubbs, Greg Griffin, Wayne Morton, Mike Price, Gary Bryan, Kenny Anderson, Debbie Allen and Tara Scott.

Band members take great pride in offering high quality family-friendly entertainment.
