Gary Portnoy

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”.

His songs have been recorded by a diverse group of notables including Dolly Parton, Phish, Air Supply, and Leon Redbone. In addition, his self-titled album on Columbia Records was recently re-issued on CD by Sony Japan.

Over the years Gary has made occasional television appearances- including one on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno and another on the TV LAND Awards.

Gary’s recent CD releases include “Keeper” (2004), “Destiny” (2007), and “Songs Along The Way” (2010).
