A new musical series will begin at the Feedback Lounge Jan. 7 at 8 pm called BLUES TO DO LIVE. The shows will be recorded for television and streamed live on the internet, every Tuesday night.

The show is an outgrowth of a 20 year history of northwest blues music from BluesToDo, produced by Marlee Walker. The show has had ten years of Public Access Television exposure as well. A new website, mobile app, and more are in the works.

Here are the scheduled acts:

January 7th
with special guest SEATTLE SLIM
An amazing power trio featuring one of the hottest rhythm sections in Polly O'Keary and Tommy Cook, both of whom were backing up Too Slim as The Taildraggers. The band has recently completed a new album called Compass.

January 14th
Elnah gathers amazing musicians around her and always puts on a dazzling show that includes blues, gospels, jazz and more. This night will see dynamic voices from the Seattle music scene and will be a very special celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

January 21st
This dynamic West Seattle trio features the Delvon Laamar, who plays the classic Hammond organ like you've never heard it before, and done with a contemporary Seattle twist. The band also features guitar legend Ben Bloom and drum master, Olli Klomp.

January 28th
Guitarist Rod Cook, one of Seattle's best kept secrets, plays with both precision and soul, either alone or with his top notch trio of 20 years, Toast, featuring excellence in rhythm from Marty Vadalabene or Chris Leighton on drums and the gifted John Bayless on bass – all award winning players.

Look for these shows, which are being recorded live for TV, to include interviews and a Blues CD of the Week offered every week.

Blues To Do-TV airs Fridays at 7pm on ch.23/77 on Comcast in King Co./Seattle or ch. 23 on Broadstripe and repeats Saturdays at midnight / Tuesdays at 2PM.

This will also stream at those times at seattlecommunitymedia.org. See past shows at www.bluestodo.com
