FREE Concert - Billy Vera - Thursday July 31


Billy Vera performs live Thursday, July 31 at Alive @ Five!!! Sponsored by Stamford Marriott Hotel & Spa and Hilton Stamford.

Billy Vera & the Beaters were the quintessential L.A. band. Billy Vera has been writing hit songs since the ’60s including “I Really Got The Feeling” for Dolly Parton. His biggest success came when the now classic love song “At This Moment” played as the romantic backdrop on the ’80s sitcom “Family Ties.” Billy is hailed as one of America’s greatest musicians. Billy Vera's Knight Riders band were arguably among the most talented and popular rock'n'roll bands through the 1960's. They played to packed houses in Stamford Downtown at the Stagecoach and the former Ramada inn. "Returning to Stamford is a true homecoming for me," says Vera. "Stamford holds a special place in the memories of my early musical career." www.billyvera.com Two other amazing bands will open for Billy Vera!
