The DELTA WIRES is a big, high-energy harmonica and horns blues band from the Oakland/San Francisco Bay Area.
They were Finalists in the Blues Foundation’s 2008 International Blues Challenge held in Memphis TN, and were voted “BEST BAND” Oakland/East Bay in Oakland Magazine’s annual readers’ poll, and also by the East Bay Express. They were inducted into the California Blues Hall of Fame in 2012.
The DELTA WIRES have recorded 7 Albums. Their latest “Born in Oakland”, is receiving rave reviews and international airplay. They have appeared at the Umbria Jazz Festival in Perugia Italy, the San Francisco Blues Festival, the Russian River Blues Festival, the Monterey Bay Blues Festival 8 times, headlined the Redding Blues by the River Festival, and many many others.
The DELTA WIRES have toured or played with many noted artists including Van Morrison, John Lee Hooker, Freddie King, The Neville Bros, Dr. John, The Doobie Brothers, Buddy Guy and Junior Wells, John Mayall, Charlie Musselwhite, Boz Scaggs, Bad Company, The James Gang, Elvin Bishop, and numerous others…
The DELTA WIRES name was derived from the image of a band with modern, “electric” instrumentation, playing a style of music born in the Mississippi “Delta”. What began as a college project and anthology of blues music from the Mississippi Delta to the South Side of Chicago, inevitably evolved into a band which has become known for its originality, versatility, and crisp, tight, exciting sound.
