Bio

Music Director and Bandleader for The Conan O' Brien Show, Jimmy Vivino and Executive Producer Greg Williamson have brought together some of the finest musicians in New York City and throughout the East Coast to pay tribute to The Blues. In Vol. 1 of "Jimmy V's NYC Blues Revue" artists will cover songs by legendary bluesmen such as Muddy Waters, BB King, Robert Johnson, Howlin' Wolf, Albert King, Eric Clapton and many others . All proceeds from this concert will benefit the Blues Foundation in Memphis,Tennessee .

The Blues Foundation is Memphis-based, but world-renown as THE organization whose mission is to preserve blues heritage, celebrate blues recording and performance, expand worldwide awareness of the blues, and ensure the future of this uniquely American art form. Founded in 1980, The Blues Foundation has approximately 4000 individual members and 200 affiliated local blues societies representing another 50,000 fans and professionals around the world. Its signature honors and events--the Blues Music Awards, Blues Hall of Fame, International Blues Challenge and Keeping the Blues Alive Awards --make it the international center of blues music. Its HART Fund provides the blues community with medical assistance for musicians in need, while Blues in the Schools programs and Generation Blues scholarships expose new generations to blues music. The 2015 opening of the Blues Hall of Fame Museum, in Memphis, TN, now adds the opportunity for music lovers of all ages to interact with the music and the history. Throughout the year, the Foundation staff serves the worldwide blues community with answers, information, and news. Support The Blues Foundation by becoming an affiliated blues society, blues business associate, or individual member, or by making a charitable donation.
