If you follow my blog, you’ve seen several concerts that have been shot at the JBTV studio. The people, the studio, and the TV show are at the top of my list of favorite people, places, and shows. In short, they’re amazing. They deserve every good thing that comes their way.
Well, speaking of good things, it’s been a great couple of weeks for the JBTV crew. Not only did they win an Emmy for their motion graphics, but they were also picked up by an NBC station (NBC 5.2), where they will air Saturdays at 9pm in addition to their WJYS airing every week at 11pm on Wednesdays.
Ryan Manno, host of JBTV, also hosts a show/event every Wednesday at the venue Angels & Kings called “The One Manno Show.” This week was declared a JBTV celebration week. Well, we had to go, despite the piles of work I have to do. And I’m so glad we did. It was truly a party. I love how much the Chicago music scene is one big family…. everywhere we turned, it was hugs, and another familiar face.
So, this is a post both to brag about how cool JBTV is and to show some pictures, and a sneak peek. I will be posting full sets as soon as I can from each band that played.
