Paul Shaffer spent 33 years fronting the World’s Most Dangerous Band as David Letterman’s music director, and he’s also recorded with many of the world’s top musicians and served as musical director and producer for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremonies.

He chronicles his career in his best-selling memoir, We’ll Be Here for the Rest of Our Lives, which David Ritz co-authored. As part of the Tri-C Performing Arts Series, he and Ritz will tell stories, play music and share clips from Shaffer’s life in show business at 7 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 13, in the Fran and Jules Belkin Theatre at the Gill and Tommy LiPuma Center for Creative Arts at Tri-C’s Metropolitan Campus.

“It’s rare to have such an intimate event with a music celebrity,” says Terri Pontremoli, director of Tri-C Performing Arts and Tri-C JazzFest, in a press release. “The audience will feel they’re part of an evening out with friends.”

Tickets range from $5 to $15 and can be purchased at If available, tickets can also be bought at the door the night of the program.
