AXS TV and Good Cop/Bad Cop Productions—the company behind Live From Daryl’s House—continue their strong partnership, bringing 10 additional episodes of the acclaimed music series to the Network’s lineup this fall. In addition to eight fan-favorite episodes, viewers will be able to enjoy two never-before-seen entries when the series returns to AXS TV with a new day and time, airing Thursday, October 1 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
The series kicks off with a pair of star-studded sets broadcast for the first time worldwide, starting with Hall’s jam session with STYX front man Tommy Shaw on October 1, featuring intimate performances of STYX signatures “Blue Collar Man,” “Too Much Time On My Hands,” and “Renegade,” as well as Daryl Hall and John Oates’ hits “Delayed Reaction”, and “It’s A Laugh”. Then, on October 8, Hall joins Ty Taylor, lead singer of L.A.-based R&B quartet Vintage Trouble, for a night of music featuring Vintage Trouble originals “Another Man’s Words,” “Nobody Told Me” and “Can’t Stop Rollin’”. They also perform The Spinners’“I’ll Be Around,” which was covered on the Daryl Hall and John Oates album “Our Kind of Soul.”
Live From Daryl’s House was created in 2007 by Rock & Roll Hall Of Famer Daryl Hall, who wanted a creative refuge from the grind of touring where he and his talented friends could hangout and rock out in a relaxed atmosphere. The Webby Award-winning program quickly took the music world and the internet by storm with its unique format, as Hall welcomed a new artist into his domain each week to enjoy some local cuisine and conversation, before hitting the studio for an unforgettable jam session. Since that time, Live From Daryl’s House has transformed into a nationally syndicated television series, attracting some of the biggest names in the industry and amassing a loyal cult following of fans eagerly anticipating the next new episode.
Other highlights include appearances and performances by guitar mastermind Joe Walsh (Oct. 15), chart-topping Goo Goo Dolls frontman Johnny Rzeznik (Oct. 22), jazz and soul songstress Kandace Springs (Oct. 29), Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Cheap Trick (Nov. 5), R&B trailblazer Smokey Robinson (Nov. 12), alt-rock mainstay Ben Folds (Nov. 19), legendary ZZ Top guitarist Billy Gibbons (Dec. 3), and iconic soul outfit The O’Jays (Dec. 10).
In regard to the upcoming season’s lineup, Daryl Hall said, “There are so many great moments.
The O’Jays one gets to the core of what I’m really all about.”
“I’m excited that AXS TV is debuting the Tommy Shaw and Ty Taylor episodes, as the fans have been asking for new episodes. Our partnership with the team at AXS TV keeps getting stronger, so I’m proud that we’re able to deliver new content, especially during these challenging times,” said Executive Producer Jonathan Wolfson.
“Live From Daryl’s House really resonated with our viewers when it debuted on our Network last April,” said Lucia McCalmont, Vice President of Programming and Scheduling, AXS TV. “We strive to give our audience the best seat in the house to unforgettable performances and unprecedented access to their favorite entertainers, and this series is a perfect reflection of that. We are proud to have the opportunity to feature it in our programming lineup once again, and we are pleased to be able to extend and build upon this successful partnership with Good Cop/Bad Cop Productions.”

A person listens to a lot of music in fifty -five years.
Almost immediately upon birth, music is introduced. Chances are a soft nursery rhyme or perhaps classical music is dangling above your head as you lay comfortably in a crib. More likely; Mom is singing you to sleep.
Please listen below to some of the songs that started my love affair with music over the past fifty-five years.
If The Beatles did not play live, there would have been no records and no radio airplay.
What would the world of music and the world itself be like if that did not happen? Artists need to grow and be heard if music will continue to soothe the souls of the planet. The souls need music more than ever right now.

Born to a middle-class African-American family in New Jersey, Bey formed a vocal group with her brother Andy Bey and sister Geraldine Bey (de Haas), known as Andy and the Bey Sisters. She performed in local clubs and toured North America and Europe. After moving to Toronto in 1964 and playing the jazz club circuit, she became known as “Canada’s First Lady of Blues”.
Bey appeared on Broadway in Your Arms Too Short to Box with God, for which she was nominated for a Grammy Award for her work on the cast album. She put together a blues & jazz cabaret show on the history of black music, Indigo – which earned her the Dora Mavor Moore Award for outstanding performance. The show was later taped for TV networks.
Bey recorded two albums with Horace Silver, and released live albums of her performances with the Montreal Jubilation Gospel Choir and at the Montreux Jazz Festival.
She was part of the Canadian super-group Northern Lights which performed the charity single “Tears Are Not Enough” in 1985. Bey can be seen in the music video for the song singing the line “Every woman, child and man” with Mark Holmes of Platinum Blonde and Lorraine Segato of The Parachute Club.
Beginning in her early sixties, Bey began showing signs of dementia. As of 2011 her illness had progressed to the point that she could no longer perform.
“We hear that phrase when presidents or judges come into the room,” says Porter, “but I’m thinking all of us rise – not just one person being exalted. We are all exalted and lifted up by love. This is my political thought and my real truth. It comes from my personality, my mother’s personality, the personality of the blues, and of black people. It’s this idea of making do with the scraps, of resurrection and ascension, and of whatever the current situation is, it can get better through love.”

Selwyn Birchwood is a master storyteller—both lyrically and musically. He’s an impressive, hard-crunching, modern blues guitarist. His fretwork is high-energy, raw and vivid…knife-edged leads and roadhouse-rattling grooves. He is graced with a depth and maturity that would be impressive in a grizzled veteran, let alone a fresh-faced young man.” —Living Blues
Shemekia Copeland is one of the great blues voices of our time. No one comes close to the sheer firepower that Copeland conjures at will.” —Chicago Tribune“

Jimmy Heath, a prolific saxophonist, composer and bandleader who played alongside some of the biggest names of jazz, including Miles Davis and John Coltrane, has died.
Heath died Sunday morning in Loganville, Georgia of natural causes, his grandson told NPR. He was 93 years old. His family was at his side, including his wife of 60 years, Mona Heath, his children Mtume and Rozie, his grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and his brother, drummer Albert “Tootie” Heath.
In a career that spanned seven decades, Heath brought the bebop he loved to big bands — and into the 21st century.
Heath is best known as a saxophonist, but he wrote and arranged music throughout his life. In 2013, when he was 87 years old, he told NPR it was important to be a complete musician. “Not just to stand up and improvise,” he stressed. “You know, you got to compose. I want to be a person who can compose, and leave something here for posterity.”
