Michael Nesmith is an American musician, songwriter, actor, producer, novelist, businessman, and philanthropist, best known as a member of the rock band The Monkees and co-star of The Monkees TV series (1966-1968).

In 1965, Michael Nesmith won a role on A New Television series about a rock group modeled after the Beatles. The Monkees, which also featured Davy Jones, Peter Tork, and Mickey Dolenz, debuted in September 1966, and this made-up boy band developed a real following.

The Monkees' popularity soon translated into pop-chart success. They reached the No. 1 spot with "I'm a Believer" and "Last Train to Clarksville." The group sold millions of albums, but they struggled with their reputation as a manufactured act. Nesmith and the other band members began to take more creative control with 1967's Headquarters, which featured numerous songs penned by the quartet. They also played many of the instruments for the recording as well.

Founded in 2003, the 1,367-seat Bergen Performing Arts Center, or bergenPAC, is the area's cultural mecca.
