The GRAMMY Museum is thrilled to welcome Americana soul band The Dustbowl Revival to the Clive Davis Theater for an intimate conversation about their career, moderated by GRAMMY Museum Executive Director Scott Goldman. The conversation will be followed by a special performance. Comprising of eight full-time members, The Dustbowl Revival are known for their unique sound that combines New Orleans funk, soul, pre-war blues, and roots music, into a genre-hopping, time-bending dance party that coaxes new fire out of familiar coal. The band is currently on tour in support of their self-titled, fourth studio album, which spent three weeks on the Billboard charts, hit No. 1 on Amazon Americana-Alt-Country, No. 2 on Amazon Folk, and spent four months on the Americana radio chart, peaking in the Top 20.

The band was founded in 2008 in the bohemian enclave of Venice Beach, Calif. Over the last five years, Dustbowl have toured over 200 days per year and become known for their free-flowing and joyous live shows, combining their funk rhythm and brass section with a fast-picking string band section —- opening for bands as diverse as Lake Street Dive, Trombone Shorty, and The Preservation Hall Jazz Band. The band also reached a larger audience with their music video featuring Dick Van Dyke that went on to garner more than 10 million cumulative views and be featured in an HBO documentary. While the band have been known for their old-time and bluegrass roots, they have departed from those styles and evolved more into modern soul music. Now, with GRAMMY Award-winning producer Ted Hutt (Old Crow Medicine Show, Gaslight Anthem, Dropkick Murphys), Dustbowl’s latest album delivers 11 songs with a heavy funk and soul vibe, including "Honey I Love You", which features GRAMMY-winning blues artist Keb’ Mo’.

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.

The GRAMMY Museum is thrilled to welcome Sabrina Carpenter to the Clive Davis Theater for an intimate performance and conversation hosted by GRAMMY Museum Executive Director Scott Goldman. Nineteen-year-old singer, songwriter, and actor Sabrina Carpenter’s journey into music, television, and film began at an early age. Her debut album, Eyes Wide Open, released in 2015, reflected her life over the previous three years, while her sophomore album, EVOLution, released in 2016, launched her first ever sold-out fall 2016 headline EVOLution Tour, traveling across 35+ cities in the United States. In May 2017, she joined The Vamps as a special guest on their UK arena tour as well as Ariana Grande’s Dangerous Woman tour in Brazil in June before heading out on The De-Tour, her 30+ date summer headline trek in July. Prior to The De-Tour, Carpenter co-wrote and released her RIAA-certified gold single, “Why,” which Billboard hailed as “highly promising of what’s to come,” and proved to be a hit on Top 40 radio. Carpenter’s vocals were featured on Lost Kings’ track “First Love,” released in October 2017. In 2018, she released “Alien” with Jonas Blue, which became the #1 Breakout Song on the Billboard Club chart and has amassed nearly 20 million global combined streams since its release. Most recently, she wrapped filming on the feature film The Hate U Give for Fox, set for release on October 19, and is set to star in the independent film The Short History of the Long Road opposite Steven Ogg, Maggie Siff and Danny Trejo. Carpenter just released her new single, “Almost Love,” and her third album is slated for release this year.

Stooge is not your typical rock ‘n’ roll documentary. It’s the story of magnetic Robert Pargiter, a childlike, super-fan of Iggy Pop & The Stooges, on a fanatical quest to keep rock alive. Taking us on a fly-on-the wall trek to London, San Francisco, L.A., and Miami, the film becomes an introspection into his life, and more broadly what drives any person to obsession. Comedy and tragedy co-exist in the serious business of dealing with personal demons, and ultimately how rock and roll gives him back his joie De vivre. Nominated in 2017 for “Best UK Feature” at London’s prestigious Raindance Film Festival, Director Madeleine Farley’s epic odyssey is This Is Spinal Tap meets One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest. “Stooge is essential viewing not just for fans of Iggy Pop, but for fans of soul, passion, and above all, friendship.” – DA Film Review. Join the GRAMMY Museum for this special screening of Stooge, followed by a post-screening conversation with Producers Stephen Smith and Martin Kloiber and Director Madeleine Farley.
