A fresh episode from 'Live from Daryl's House'

Live from Daryl's House is back from a year-long hiatus. The first new episode begins the year with Daryl Hall and ZZ Top guitarist Billy Gibbons for the 63rd and latest edition of the critically acclaimed, award-winning, web-to-cable series.

The opening episode of what promises to be a jam-packed 2014 premieres on Daryl's website on Jan. 15, followed by its cable debut on Viacom's high-definition music channel Palladia on Feb. 6 at 11 PM ET.

Hall and Gibbons perform a seven-song set of Daryl Hall and John Oates and ZZ Top tunes, along with a vintage cover of Jimmy McGriff's 1963 instrumental, "Kiko." The pair also perform such deep Daryl Hall tunes as "Bank on Your Love" and "Love You Like a Brother." The pair do four ZZ Top songs: the band's cover of Sam & Dave's "I Thank You," "La Grange," "Sharp Dressed Man" and the group's version of the Nightcaps' '50s rave-up, "Thunderbird."

"Playing Live from Daryl's House is a regular, down-to-earth, big bash," said Gibbons about the experience. "Good groovin' to the core."

"Being in a room with Billy Gibbons is like dipping your toe into the deep wellspring of Texas rock, blues and soul," said Hall.

The past seven years have seen Live from Daryl's House receive a Webby Award for Best Variety series (from more than 10,000 entries) and an O Music Award from MTV.
