The Jackie Payne Steve Edmonson Band will be performing Thursday, May 10th
at The Blues Foundation's 2007 Blues Music Awards held at Memphis' Cook
Convention Center, 225 North Main Street. In addition to performing with
Jackie, the band will be backing Frankie Lee, Sugar Pie DeSanto and Johnny
Rawls. You'll also be treated to performances by soul blues great Bobby
Rush. Folks, you'll only see it at the Blues Music Awards!

 

The event brings together Blues performers, industry representatives and
fans from all over the world to celebrate the best in Blues recordings and
performances from the previous year. Each year, the Foundation presents The
Blues Music Awards to the artists selected by its members. They are
universally recognized as the highest honor given to Blues artists. 

 

The Blues Foundation's 2006 Blues Music Awards will be aired on Viacom's BET
J Network. Show dates are: April 24 at 4pm and May 8 at 4pm. Last year's
show was filmed by Jazz Alley TV, the longest running Blues and Jazz series
on television.

About the Blues Music Awards: 

The 2007 show will follow the format of the sold-out and critically
acclaimed shows of recent years which featured appearances and performances
by more than 40 nominees in a dinner table setting in the Convention
Center's new ballroom. Attendees are treated to a dinner seated with the
nominees and will enjoy unique artist performances and pairings only seen at
the Blues Music Awards. As always, a pre-party will immediately precede the
Awards and feature the 2007 International Blues Challenge winners.
