Southern California’s, DELGADO BROTHERS iconic sound brings traditional blues to life, with powerful vocals and well-crafted lyrics rooted in rhythm and rocking blues. If you love the blues, then this band belongs at the top of your musical library. Rock solid musicianship is a sonic force connecting listeners to a wave of resonant unity.
Driven by fierce independence, unified by family, and fortified by the brotherhood of music.
THE DELGADO BROTHERS have been delivering passionate, powerful original music to new and dedicated fans for decades. Though they came out of the same East L.A. scene as Los Lobos and El Chicano, they forsook traditional Hispanic inspiration, veering toward traditional Blues, Americana, Roots Rock and R&B with strong harmonies. The Brothers’ sound has long been embraced and celebrated both locally and globally by a wide spectrum of people undivided by culture, age or socioeconomic status.
Performances featuring vocalist and frontman, “Joey D” Delgado, a powerfully gritty blues guitarist with signature solos and masterful licks, big brother and boss bass player Bobby Delgado (former member of the innovative band out of East L.A. “Thee Exotics”); fueled by blues and soul foundation of younger brother and vocalist, drummer, Steve Delgado. The add-on brother, Indiana bred David B. Kelley came West in search of “groove and diversity”. An incredibly gifted musician, David’s playing on his “Vintage 1972 Hammond B3” adds tone, depth and texture to the sound and songs. Each member brings a unique style of musicianship to the Delgado Brothers band.
Propelled by their 2016 1st place International Blues Competition and “Albert King Award” wins, the Delgado Brothers embarked on a new nation wide tour and invited audiences to travel with them! To attend their spirited live performances is to witness the synergy, passion, emotion, work ethic and their true musicianship.
For over 30 years the Delgado Brothers have been music makers, collaborators and ordinary citizens; raising kids, grieving the loss of parents, marrying & divorcing. Life experience lends to their flare for soaring lyrics projected by soulful and rocking’ rhythms.
