Welcome to Rez Bluez! Television producing partners Elaine Bomberry, Aaron Goldman along with first time television producer Shawn Henry, are continuing to prove that Aboriginal music is about to take centre stage with REZ BLUEZ season 2. In keeping with the high level of musicianship and excellent showmanship that made REZ BLUEZ season 1 a huge success, this year the series is brought to you in HI-DEFINITION WITH 5.1 SURROUND SOUND! REZ BLUEZ season 2 is the FIRST Aboriginal series in history to be produced and broadcast in this format.
REZ BLUEZ is committed to showcasing the best of the best in Aboriginal Blues talent from across Turtle Island. This season we have seasoned veterans like Murray Porter, Keith Secola, and Dalannah Bowen, as well as crowd favourites from the first season Derek Miller, Billy Joe Green, Texas Meltdown, Wes Mackey and The Pappy Johns Band. Just like before we are committed to giving the new breed of talent a stepping stone as well as a stage to perform. This time around we have the beautiful Shakti Hayes and her funky bass lines, the soulful sounds of Martha Redbone, the amazing harmonica playing of Robbie Antone, as well as the earth shaking guitar work of the 15 year old prodigy Levi Platero of The Plateros.
We at REZ BLUEZ like to laugh too. So we searched far and wide to bring you the comedy of such great performers as the incredibly funny Gerry "The Big Bear" Barrett as well as gut busting humour of Drew Lacapa, Skeena Reece, and returning to give her hilarious outlook on life Michaela Wasburn. So as you can see this season of REZ BLUEZ is packed to the gills with solid talent from all over Turtle Island.
