This Thursday, July 9, the GRAMMY Museum will host Catching Up with The Immediate Family, a live online conversation with the group — a who’s-who of music industry legends involving Danny Kortchmar (guitar and vocals), Waddy Wachtel (guitar and vocals), Leland Sklar (bass), Russ Kunkel (drums) and Steve Postell (guitar and vocals).

Hosted by the GRAMMY Museum and moderated by Scott Goldman, the event is a fundraiser, with proceeds going to “… help support the GRAMMY Museum’s mission to continue its music education programs and digital content virtually while its doors are closed due to COVID-19.”

Said Goldman of the event:

“I’m so excited to speak with five of the most accomplished musicians and songwriters around. It only makes sense for them to be in a band together. These guys are both witness to, and participants in, music history! (And the new single sounds great!).”

Catching Up with the Immediate Family will go live at 7 p.m. EDT/4 p.m. PDT, and tickets can be purchased at this link. 

The Immediate Family recently premiered its debut single, “Cruel Twist,” a preview of additional forthcoming music from the group:

The quintet of seasoned music industry veterans has been working on an as-yet untitled studio album that, when released, will be the group’s first U.S. release, after the record Honey, Don’t Leave L.A., which was released in Japan.

In addition to the new musical activity, the Immediate Family will also be the focus of a new documentary film from Denny Tedesco as the follow-up to Tedesco’s acclaimed documentary on The Wrecking Crew.

The Immediate Family were kind enough to contribute a video to our All Together Now! online concert/telethon for COVID-19 relief in the Los Angeles area back on April 25 … and their submission, a cover of Warren Zevon’s “Werewolves of London,” was a treat:
