The GRAMMY Museum is thrilled to welcome GRAMMY-nominated singer/songwriter Jhené Aiko to the Clive Davis Theater for an intimate conversation on her rising career and new album, Trip, followed by a live performance. The evening will be hosted by Lyndsey Parker, Managing Editor for Yahoo Music.

Aiko was already more than a decade deep in the music game when she arrived at Def Jam in 2011; having been featured on singles, albums and mixtapes by A-listers Kendrick Lamar, Wale, Big Sean, Logic, J. Cole, Drake, and many more. Aiko made history when Sail Out, her 2013 phenomenal No. 1 debut EP, became the biggest-selling EP in Def Jam history. The EP’s success was propelled by her sizzling BET Award-winning and GRAMMY-nominated No. 1 platinum crossover hit "The Worst" (over 108 million combined YouTube views to date). The momentum kept up when she joined Drake on his 39-city North American Would You Like A Tour? She appeared with him on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live,” which led to her own solo dates on TBS’ “Conan,” CBS’ “The Late Show with David Letterman,” and NBC Universal’s “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.” Aiko’s brilliant 2014 solo album, Souled Out, entered the Soundscan R&B chart at No. 1, featuring the song "The Pressure," described by Billboard as “an otherworldly neck-snapper” (over 11 million combined YouTube views to date). The release of Souled Out was celebrated on NBC’s “The Today Show.” In 2016, Aiko collaborated with fellow multi-platinum Def Jam superstar Big Sean on their debut duo project, TWENTY88. On Sept. 22 Aiko wowed her legion of fans with the surprise release of TRIP, her 22-song masterwork of love, loss and discovery. In support of the album, on Nov. 14 Aiko will embark on a 16-date North American tour.

In conjunction with the year-long centennial celebration of Buddy Rich, the GRAMMY Museum invites you to a special evening to commemorate the life and legacy of the iconic award-winning drummer. The evening will feature an intimate Q&A featuring Cathy Rich, the only child of Buddy; Gregg Potter, the drummer for the current incarnation of the Buddy Rich Band; and Red Hot Chili Peppers/Chickenfoot drummer Chad Smith. The conversation will be followed by a special performance.

Born in New York in 1917, Buddy Rich, whom Gene Krupa defined as “the greatest drummer to ever draw breath,” was honored with a President’s Special Merit Award from the Recording Academy; induction into the Downbeat magazine, Modern Drummer and Playboy Halls of Fame, and the Palm Springs Walk of Stars; five GRAMMY nominations; the Jazz Unlimited Immortals of Jazz Award; numerous reader’s polls; awards for his philanthropic efforts; and he was named the World’s Greatest Drummer by Modern Drummer. He rose to fame playing with the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra, where he met lifelong friend Frank Sinatra, who gave the eulogy in 1987 at Rich’s funeral.  Rich toured around the globe, performing for millions of fans and numerous world leaders including the King of Thailand, King Hussein of Jordan, Queen Elizabeth of England, and U.S. Presidents Franklin D. Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy and Ronald Reagan. After her father’s passing, Cathy Rich devoted herself to preserving the legacy she was born into. It was her father’s wish to keep his band and music alive for young people in future generations, and it has been her mission to make sure that wish comes true.

Legendary Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, GRAMMY® winner, New York Times best-selling author, and co-founder and chief lyricists of The Beach Boys, Mike Love released a special double album, on Nov. 17 through BMG. Titled Unleash the Love, the album features 13 previously unreleased songs and 12 re-recordings of Beach Boys classics. Produced by GRAMMY winner Mike Lloyd, the album is a testament to, and continuation of, Love’s remarkable career. The new tracks range from rock, gospel, R&B, and pop and celebrate Love’s journey to find personal love and peace. Love's history with transcendental meditation anchors several songs, including "Ram Raj," which celebrates the divine; "Pisces Brothers," a tribute to the late George Harrison and the experiences they both shared in India in 1968; and "Cool Head, Warm Heart," a breezy pop song that borrows its title from a saying by Maharishi Mahesh. The special double album also features new versions of classic hits recorded by members of The Beach Boys touring band such as "California Girls," "Help Me Rhonda," "Good Vibrations," "Do It Again" featuring Mark McGrathand and John Stamos, as well as "Darlin'" featuring AJR. The GRAMMY Museum is thrilled to welcome Mike Love to the Clive Davis Theater for an intimate conversation on his career and new music, moderated by GRAMMY Museum Executive Director Scott Goldman. Following the conversation, Love will perform a special acoustic set.

The son of an African-American jazz musician and classically trained British opera singer, recent two-time GRAMMY nominee Clint Holmes was raised with the best of two musical worlds. Not only a singer, Holmes is a consummate entertainer, performer, and recording artist. Whether performing selections from the Great American Songbook, contemporary classics, or stirring original pieces, every performance is a one-of-a-kind experience. Skilled with a powerful tenor voice, magnetic stage presence, and a entertaining comedic streak, Holmes’ 40-plus-year career has taken him to the top of the charts, to concert halls, on TV screens, and also cemented his legacy as a veritable Las Vegas institution. His new release, Rendezvous, is a star-studded jazz collective produced by three-time GRAMMY winner Gregg Field. The album offers a diverse playlist that reinterprets modern day and classic pop hits, soulful R&B, theatrical tunes, and numbers culled from the Great American Songbook. Rendezvous features guest appearances by GRAMMY winners Patti Austin and Dee Dee Bridgewater, and multi-GRAMMY nominees Ledisi, and Dave Koz. The GRAMMY Museum is pleased to welcome Clint Holmes, along with Gregg Field, Jane Monheit, and Christian Tamburr, to the Clive Davis Theater for an intimate conversation on Holmes' new music and brief performance, hosted by Museum Executive Director Scott Goldman. Prior to his GRAMMY Museum appearance, Holmes will perform a full concert featuring songs from his new album at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts as a part of The Sorting Room winter session on Friday, Dec. 15. Information is available at www.TheWallis.org/SortingRoom.
