We first came to know him through the global smash "World Without Love" as one-half of the British Invasion duo Peter & Gordon. He returns in "Peter Asher: A Musical Memoir of the '60s and Beyond," which brings a multimedia experience to the stage, hosted by the two-time GRAMMY winner for Producer Of The Year. Asher moved effortlessly from his role with Peter & Gordon to Music Executive with the Beatles’ Apple Records, then to producer and manager, handling the careers of James Taylor, Linda Ronstadt, and a host of others. Now, finally, Asher tells first hand his tales from the eye of the cultural hurricane in this intimate evening. Featuring film footage and photos from Asher’s considerable personal archive, brought to life with a storyteller’s gift, transporting audiences back to the heart of '60s popular culture. The evening is filled with the music of Peter & Gordon, including "I Go to Pieces," "True Love Ways," and "Lady Godiva." Asher presents these timeless classics along with other old favorites from that golden era. The show brings the audience through the earliest days of Asher’s journey all the way to the present day, and projects such as the Peter Asher-produced album by Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers, The Long Awaited Album, released Sept. 22, 2017. Asher will also take the audience behind the curtain of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony, where he inducted two old friends, the Rolling Stones’ first manager Andrew Loog Oldham and the Beatles’ Manager Brian Epstein. His work on soundtracks ("Amazing Spider-Man 2," “Man Of Steel,” “Rush.”, etc), alongside the legendary Hans Zimmer, is touched on also, as well as the 2017 "Hans Zimmer Live!" tour of the USA and Europe that Asher directed. Now in its seventh year, “Memoir” continues to thrill, as the reviews attest.

Featuring a post-screening Q&A with Billy Vera and director Alan Swyer

Often called "the most famous person most people have never heard of," Billy Vera is a singer/songwriter who has been said "to have a hit every 20 years whether he needs one or not." The first white male to play Harlem's famed Apollo as part of a duet with a black woman (Judy Clay), Vera has penned hits for artists as varied as Dolly Parton, Ricky Nelson, the Remains, and Lou Rawls, and had a No. 1 song called "At This Moment," whose journey is one of the miracles of the music business. Director Alan Swyer’s documentary Harlem To Hollywood gives a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to succeed in the music industry and build a career that stands the test of time. It is the story of a man who pursued his dream, faced struggles, had downfalls and victories, reached success and through it all stayed true to himself.

The film takes viewers from Vera’s early career in New York, performing at venues ranging from the Peppermint Lounge to Harlem’s legendary Apollo Theater, and onto his reinvention in Hollywood as leader of Billy Vera & the Beaters with his No. 1 hit, “At This Moment,” made famous on the TV sitcom “Family Ties.” The GRAMMY Museum will present a special screening of this film, followed by an intimate conversation moderated by GRAMMY Museum Executive Director Scott Goldman featuring Billy Vera and Alan Swyer.
