Billy Vera & The Beaters

Formed in 1979 around songwriter Billy Vera (b. William McCord, 28 May 1944, Riverside, California, USA; vocalist, guitarist), Billy And The Beaters was an aggregation comprised of Los Angeles studio musicians. A 10-piece group, whose best-known member other than Vera was Steely Dan / Doobie Brothers guitarist Jeff ‘Skunk’ Baxter, the other members at various times included Barry Beckett (keyboards), Gene Chrisman (drums), Tommy Cogbill (bass), Ron Viola (saxophone), Pete Carr (guitar), Jim Ehinger (piano), Jimmy Johnson(guitar), Lon Price (saxophone), Beau Segal (drums) and Jerry Peterson (saxophone). The band initially came together to work a club date at LA’s Troubadour nightclub. They banded together officially following that engagement and solidified their act during a six-week residency there. ‘Here Comes The Dawn Again’ was their live showstopper, featuring a biting saxophone solo. In 1981 they signed with the small Alfa Records and recorded a live album at LA’s Roxy club. Two singles, ‘I Can Take Care Of Myself’ and ‘At This Moment’, became moderate chart successes, but the latter made a comeback in 1986 after being used in the US television programme Family Ties, and ultimately became a million-selling number 1 in the US. Vera has since become a highly respected songwriter and record producer, in addition to working as a vintage soul and R&B album compiler.

Billy has some great tunes, most rarely if ever played on the radio.

Not many comments recently. I followed Billy and the Band in the 80's. Listen to O What a Night (to be missing you) and the great - Room with a view of the Blues. Also, Private Clown. Anyone else catch The Beaters at The Troubadour on the Tuesday Midnight shows?

"At This Moment" _was_ an overplayed song for a while after that sitcom appearance, but it's nice to hear it again. I wish the live album I got of him The Beaters I got on cassette ages ago would be reissued--it ' s a great r&b bar-band album, on the order of Southside Johnny, but more soulful. "At This Moment" isn't even the best track on that album.

I really enjoy hearing "I Can Take Care of Myself" on Pandora. I've given it a Thumbs Up, hoping that "At This Moment" would sometimes be played. I NEVER hear it. Sometimes I don't get Pandora.

I didn't know anything else about this guy besides remembering his name as the artist for "at this moment." I have tried to find the song as a ringtone for 3 different phones, and can never find it!
