From jazz vocalist/bandleader to actor/comedian/radio talk show host, it's easy to see why Wayne Powers is often referred to as a “renaissance man”.
Powers' television career spans several decades and includes his recurring role as the Cop on Laverne & Shirley, MacKenzie Phillips' boyfriend on One Day At A Time, Murder She Wrote, several episodes of Simon And Simon, Full House, Alf, Doogie Howser, along with many others, including starring for two seasons in his own popular NBC sitcom, 13 East.
The infectious charm and musical wit of 'Three Guys Named Louis'-Armstrong,

Wayne Powers and his band, Hoi Polloi, were a knockout ... one of the BEST shows
I've seen in a long time! Powers sings, mugs, scats and fairly bounces off the stage.

the audience roared their approval
