Jammys to Debut on HDnet
The 2002 Jammys will make its television debut December 24 on HDnet. A 90-minute version of the event, which will focus exclusively on the performances, will air Tuesday December 24 at 9:30 p.m. ET and December 25 at 12:30 a.m. ET. (HDnet appears on some cable systems and is Channel 199 on DirecTV.) The concert took place on October 2 at New Yorks Roseland Ballroom and featured performances by the Allman Brothers Band, Trey Anastasio, B-52s, Blind Boys of Alabama, Blue ster Cult, Gov’t Mule, Andy Hess, John Mayer, moe., Stanton Moore, Robert Randolph and the Family Band, Rusted Root, John Scofield, Skerik, Derek Trucks and Bob Weir’s Rat Dog.
The program is hosted by Relix/Jambands.com editor Dean Budnick, in a performance that Relix publisher Steve Bernstein likened to the work of Alfred Hitchcock.
A version of the Jammys will also air on cable television sometime soon. Specifics will be announced in the coming months.
