“I am really excited to launch my show on SiriusXM’s B.B. King's Bluesville. Hosting and sharing music with people is one of my passions. I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I do, bringing this new show to you,” – JB
Joe is taking over the airwaves and mixing up the blues with his own Sirius XM radio show! He is joining B.B. King’s Bluesville station to do a new weekly blues show called Different Shades of Blue with Joe Bonamassa. Joe plans to explore all aspects of the blues genre while also curating his favorite blues songs with an eclectic mix. Joe will venture from the 1920s early originators through 1980s blues renaissance, touching on the British Blues catalogue of music from genre titans Eric Clapton, Peter Green, Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, and expanding to modern day heavy hitters like The White Stripes, The Black Keys and many more.
Different Shades of Blue with Joe Bonamassa airs Mondays at 6:00 pm ET 3PM PT on B.B. King’s Bluesville, via satellite on channel 74 through the SiriusXM app on smartphones and other connected devices, as well as online.
The new weekly show will also feature “Keeping the Blues Alive Spotlight,” where Bonamassa will share select tracks from emerging blues acts to showcase inspiring new music from younger generations. The segment coincides with Bonamassa’s foundation of the same name (Keeping the Blues Alive), which promotes “music education for the next generation,” donating instruments to schools across the country, funding scholarships for college education and more.
