‘Monkee’ to perform Nov. 22 in Bloomington

“An Evening with Michael Nesmith” is coming to the Buskirk Chumley Theatre in Bloomington at 8 p.m. on Nov. 22. Doors open at 7.

Nesmith has made his mark on popular culture as a songwriter, performer, author, film producer and actor. He is best known as a member of the rock band The Monkees and co-star of “The Monkees” television series.

Nesmith has produced more than 15 solo albums and is widely known as a key pioneer in the development of country rock music, most notably for his work with The First National Band.

As a songwriter, he has written music for such performers as Linda Rondstadt, and has had songs covered by artists ranging from Run DMC to Andy Williams. In 1980, Nesmith was one of the men behind the launch of the revolutionary television channel, MTV. In the following year, Nesmith won the first Grammy Award given for a long-form music video for his one-hour show, “Elephant Parts.” His most recent solo work, “Rays,” was released in 2006 and has been described by Rolling Stone magazine as “the greatest music never heard.”
