WSRE created StudioAmped to produce a quality program that showcases original music. “Most of the bands are working on or releasing new albums,” says Executive Producer Bill Harrell. “We’ve got Johnny Hayes, who appeared on The Voice this year, and two bands from the new Skate Mountain Records label in Fairhope—Jimmy Lumpkin and the Revival and the Underhill Family Orchestra.
“Two of our most popular groups from years past—Boukou Groove and Sugarcane Jane—are coming back to perform their brand new albums. We’ll also have an evening of gospel music featuring internationally known singer-songwriter Solomon Bozeman. This will be the first time we’ve had gospel music on the show.”
Harrell suggests visiting the bands’ websites and streaming their songs before attending the show tapings.
“This is a different experience than seeing these bands perform at local clubs,” he says. “They are recording an hour-long concert that will last forever online. It’s a great opportunity to get their music heard, and they draw positive energy from the audience, which makes for a great show.”
StudioAmped airs on WSRE Thursdays at 9 p.m. followed at 10 by the award-winning public television staple Austin City Limits, the longest-running music program on television. Encore presentations of StudioAmped air Wednesdays at 10 p.m., and past episodes can be viewed online at wsre.org/studioamped and on WSRE’s YouTube channel.
