Michael Redman, Jr. is familiar to many audiences both by sight and by sound.
Some of Michael’s commercial novelties include singing while shaving barbershop-quartet style for Gillette Foamy shave cream; more barbershop thirst-quenching for Lipton Tea; and singing and tap-dancing, uniformed as a World War I “Doughboy” soldier, on top of a shiny, new Chevrolet. Michael’s acting career includes a starring role in a new, situation-comedy pilot taped in New Zealand, titled “The Cleaning Company”, as well as several roles on “Little House On The Prairie”, “Highway To Heaven”. In addition, he appeared on the TV series, “Eight Is Enough”, singing in---guess what?---a barbershop quartet!
Film credits for Michael include “Annie”, “Blues Brothers”, “Big”, “Lonesome Dove”, “Apocalypse: Now”, and “Oh God, Books I, II, and III”.
As a recording artist, Michael has performed and recorded with such legends as Frank Sinatra, Barbra Streisand, Ray Conniff, Elvis Presley, Henry Mancini, Dolly Parton, Kenny Rogers, and Florence Henderson. Another highlight for Michael has been the blending of his voice with the Grammy-nominated “L.A. Voices”. What a treat to perform the exciting and demanding arrangements in concert with the incomparable big band jazz artistry of “SuperSax”. These groups are popular internationally, playing to sold-out concerts and jazz clubs throughout the United States and in such places as Tokyo, Monte Carlo, Barcelona, The Hague, Antwerp, London and Paris.
Michael’s career took an exciting turn when singer-songwriter, Gail Farrell created the smooth, fun blend of voices which came to be known as the popular trio of “Gail, Ron & Michael” on TV’s longest-running musical-variety show, “The Lawrence Welk Show”. Together, the trio performs throughout the U.S. in concerts, clubs, symphony orchestras, pops concerts, festivals, state and county fairs in addition to television, film and recording projects in Nashville, Los Angeles and other entertainment centers. The trio is part of the international “Musical Family Reunion Tour” which is appearing in major metropolitan areas in the U.S. and Canada.
He continues his performance schedule of solo concertizing and recording, as well as sharing co-hosting chores with his lovely wife, Cinda, on TV fund-raisers for various charities and PBS pledge drives.
Cinda Goold Redman is a concert pianist and chamber music performer appearing with symphony orchestras and recitals internationally. Cinda is also author of the popular, celebrity book of recipes, photos and updates, Recipes For Remembrance, featuring stars of “The Lawrence Welk TV Show”.
Michael’s latest solo album is entitled “Michael Redman---Yesterday and Today”. The album is a mixture of pop, contemporary Christian, inspirational, standards, big band and a touch of jazz.
Some people recognize Michael as a cast member of such vintage TV series as The Smothers Brothers, Donny & Marie and The Lawrence Welk Show.

He can be heard also on many Walt Disney and Hanna-Barbera creations like “The Little Mermaid”, Yogi Bear and The Flintstones. And recently, the entire Redman family completed their vocal work on a Disney film, “Perfect Harmony”, in which Michael’s wife, Cinda, and their two daughters, Jennifer and Melissa, all joined forces.
