Actor Molly Ringwald is moving from the big screen to the small stage for performances with her jazz band in Australia in June.
Molly released her debut album ‘Except Sometimes’ in 2013 which includes her jazz cover of the Simple Minds classic ‘(Don’t You) Forget About Me’, from her 1985 movie ‘The Breakfast Club’.
Molly performed in her father’s jazz band when she was a kid. “I had quite the musical repertoire,” she says at her website. “It was pretty much traditional jazz but there was some Bessie Smith and Helen Kane, the original Betty Boop.”
