ABOUT

Greetings,
I am part of a local (O'Fallon,IL) two-man ensemble specializing in Americana Roots Music associated with the Mississippi River. Our music project showcases and highlights musical traditions associated with St Louis Ragtime, New Orleans Early Jazz/Blues and Mississippi Delta Blues/Slide guitar. Our goal is to not only entertain but expose these wonderful traditions rooted in Mississippi River culture to the public. Our music is upbeat, interesting and commands a presence with our two-man ensemble. I play the National Resophonic Slide Guitar which is really a presence of its own because of how the guitar is engineered. I and my bandmate, James, are looking to play strategic and sophisticated venues that compliment the direction of our niche music. We would love to enhance the overall experience at your venue and are both very positive, outgoing people. We appreciate any response and if you are interested in seeing more about what we do, please visit our website at .deltalou dot com and use the contact page to reach out. There you can listen to 9 music samples which highlight the variety of music we play. Our music in the end, represents the St Louis experience; the music is over a hundred years old but still very important for its history. Looking forward to hearing from you. Please don’t hesitate to reach out. Our stage act is called Delta Lou. We have a solid set after practicing 4 months and are ready to play gigs. We would love to add a trumpet player on fiddle/violin player. Trumpet and violin player would take us to a whole new level!
