In the last couple of years, the Delta Generators have shared the stage with such acts as Robert Cray, Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Three Dog Night, James Cotton, Jimmie Vaughn, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Johnny Winter, Walter Trout, Popa Chubby, Bonerama, Candye Kane, Michael Burks, John Lee Hooker Jr. and Sonny Landreth among many others.
There is a real buzz around the fourth album from the Delta Generators which should be out soon, which isn't surprising. Every album they have released so far has been getting increasing attention with the last one winning the Blues album of the year from the Independent Music Awards. The new album, which has already met its Pledgemusic fundraising goal, is tightly written and produced should hopefully get them the international attention they deserve; you can get a taste here. Some of their older music can be found here, and I would particularly recommend ‘Hard River to Row (video below)'
We are really pleased to be back at George’s for this show, despite the fact that we had a lot of fun at Ducky’s which we will continue to use from time to time. As you know, a lot of work has gone into keeping George’s operational and we are committed to investing some TLC this time before the show to make sure that we have a pleasant evening in there…we hope therefore to see lots of you at the show…we can’t do it without you!
The last show of the lineup is:
The Johnny Max Band (Toronto) Friday, April29, George’s Roadhouse, 9 PM (part of the Bordertown Festival)
Touring on the back of his 7th album (2 of which have been nominated for Junos), Johnny will be bringing his original brand of roadhouse soul to our very own Roadhouse. Johnny plays more than the usual 12 bar blues, borrowing heavily from R&B and soul in his delivery so that you can expect a foot-stompin’, shoulder-shaking evening from a veteran Canadian band.
