2008 FINALISTS in Blues Foundation's International Blues Challenge in Memphis TN, out of 100 band representatives from blues societies all over the world. 

Voted "Best Band" Oakland/East Bay by Oakland Magazine and the East Bay Express.

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.

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.
