An Evening With Gary Portnoy - The Story of the Cheers theme song
Join us for an intimate evening with a legendary songwriter for an evening of music and story. Learn about Gary’s personal story and evolution, his Jewish roots and how he became a legendary songwriter and singer.
Gary is best known for co-writing and singing “Where Everybody Knows Your Name,” the theme from the hit television series “Cheers.” Thanks to that song — as well as the themes to “Punky Brewster” and “Mr. Belvedere” among others — Gary was honored by ASCAP (The American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers) for having composed the most performed television themes for six consecutive years
Gary is a two time Emmy nominee — for the Cheers theme and for “I Still Believe In Me,” a song he co-wrote for an episode of “Fame.”
