Blues On TV: Back Door Slam, Jeff Healey

Just a couple of things to look for, if you're in the U.S. Rising young UK blues rockers Back Door Slam, whose debut album 'Roll Away' recently hit #7 in the Billboard Blues Charts, will be appearing live on CBS TV's "CBS Early Show' this Saturday, March 8th, 2008. Check your local listings for exact times, but judging by the name of the show, I'm going way out on a limb here and guessing it'll be early morning. Don't miss this chance to catch one of the best young blues acts to come along in quite some time.

Also on March 8th, the great Canadian blues rock guitarist Jeff Healey, who tragically passed away from the cancer he'd battled all his life on March 2nd, will have his final televised concert "Beautiful Noise : Jeff Healey and the Jazz Wizards" rebroadcast on the RAVE HD satellite/cable channel. The one-hour special, which airs in the United States at 8 p.m. ET (7 p.m. CT and 5 p.m. PT), features Healey and his eight-piece band bringing the exhuberant sounds of pre-war jazz into the 21st century. RAVE HD, the first 24/7 music channel dedicated to delivering a larger-than-life concert experience in crystal clear high-definition and 5.1 Dolby® Digital Surround Sound, is available throughout the US on the DISH Network satellite service (Channel 9470) and Cablevision’s iO digital cable service (Channel 785).
