F E S T I V A L T V Here is an A - Z ONLINE live link to bands and artists appearing at the 2013 Teignmouth Jazz & Blues Festival. The format is a YOU TUBE LINK followed by a WEBSITE LINK. It is appreciated that not all artists or bands have either. When trawling the 'net for the Festival TV, video clips taken at a gig (some without the band's knowledge) that have poor sound or serious camera shake have not been included. If you or your band have a decent video that you would like included on the Festival TV, do get in touch. Go to Contact Us, and follow the Post from the Coast/Web Content link. Many thanks.

ARTISTS! We know life touring on the road is as much fun as root canal dentistry, but can we help you by getting maximum publicity for your gig? Could you check that at least one photo of you/the band on your website/My Space is at least I MB. This is the minimum requirement for photos in local and national press printing, and for commerical printers when publishing. Under I MB is usually OK for the Internet, but not for printed material.
