The Delta Sonics music takes a Chicago Blues base and seasons it with Swing, Delta, N’awlins R&B, and some early Rock n’ Roll. They were Westword’s best blues band in Denver the last six of eight years. The band made the semi-finals in the Memphis (International Blues Challenge) in 2012. They have been featured at many of the major festivals in Colorado and Wyoming.
Al Chesis supplies vocals & foot-stomping showmanship but it’s his harmonica playing that grabs you. He has been a Hohner endorser since 1992. Bob Pellegrino supplies the dazzling, slide guitar. Bob was the Colorado Blues Society’s best slide guitar player in three years in a row. Rising bass star Alissa Chesis and Stefan Flores on drums ‘drive the bus’ and are a grooving rhythm section.
