For years Delta Wires have shared billing with such blues luminaries as Van Morrison, Boz Skaggs, Freddie King, Buddy Guy, Lowell Fulson and many others. These elements culminate in this finely-honed presentation of rhythm and blues stylings as an art form.

Take one talented Italian city kid with his harmonica, and his boyhood bass-playing buddy, raised in the Oakland/East Bay area - the heart of West Coast Blues - add a virtuoso guitarist and talented 3-piece horn section with Mississippi Delta and Chicago Big Band influences, all driven by a classic “fat back” drum pulse, to create this hybrid of urban sound. Anchor this explosive combination with years of heart, soul and sweat on stage and you've got a definitive representation of a generation of the Bay Area music scene.
