Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, followed by subsequent showings with Cee Lo
(3/16), Train (3/23), Jason Mraz (3/30) and Fitz & the Tantrums (4/6).
ďFrom the very beginning, Darylís
goal has been to get the shows seen by as wide an audience as possible, through
both online and traditional media outlets,Ē commented Jonathan Wolfson, co-executive
producer of the series and Hallís manager. ďWe appreciate the support Viacom
has shown through our relationship with Palladia, and we look forward to
furthering the branding of the Live from
Darylís House by expanding to VH1. Along with RFD, Family Net and our
syndication partners, we are well on the way to achieving those initial
ďWhen I started, I knew that the only way I could do the
kind of show I wanted to do was on the Internet,Ē Daryl told MSN.com recently. ďIt
allowed a certain freedom of format and a different set of expectations. You
canít do that on a network. After proving myself on the Internet, I was lucky
enough to be noticed by Palladia. I already had a tried-and-true format that
fit in with what they do... I don't have anyone
standing over me telling me what to do and what not to do. I think thatís what
people like about it. Itís free of constraint and purely spontaneous, real and
true. I am delighted theyíve decided to air the show on VH1.Ē
