Al Smith & Friends
“Reefer Madness: Dispelling the Myth” combines a captivating rock and soul revue by veteran singer/songwriter Al Smith with voices from the burgeoning medical marijuana community. It is produced by EDUTAINMENT PRESENTS (EP).

The recent legalization of recreational marijuana use in states like California has increased public discussion over the popular substance. As state and federal legislators continue to debate the moral, legal and ethical questions surrounding marijuana use, citizens across the country clamor for elected officials to support legalization efforts. EDUTAINMENT PRESENTS aims to provide timely education through dynamic events and the Cutting Room event is the first in a series that is scheduled to place across the country. By combining great musical entertainment with testimonials from those most powerfully affected by the use of medical marijuana and information from industry leaders, EP hopes to create exciting and meaningful spaces for education on this issue.
Headlining the show is Al Smith, an acclaimed performer who is considered by music industry insiders as a legitimate missing link between the great classic rock and classic soul era of the 1970’s - a bridge connecting a golden era of music’s past to the eclectic music landscape of today. He will be joined by special musical guests and demonstrating several cutting edge music products, including the TC-Helicon VL3 Guitar/Voice harmonizer and a Ketron GP-1, an Italian made keyboard distributed by AjamSonic. Master of Ceremonies, Ron Barba , is an up-and-coming stand-up comedian whose style of comedy is popular with a variety of audiences. The entertainment is curated by former William Morris agent Sam McKeith, who handled the careers of the Temptations and Stevie Wonder, among others. He was responsible for signing Bruce Springsteen and appropriately enough, once served as the East Coast agent for legendary comedians Cheech& Chong.
EDUTAINMENT PRESENTS is an event-based organization that stages musical concerts with informative presentations.
