"Delta by the Beach" is a three piece band dedicated to creating the authentic sounds of a Mississippi Juke Joint right here in California. Our heads are in the Delta and our feet are on the Beach.
Guitarist Milo Sledge plays his vintage Kay guitar in the styles of Elmore James and Hubert Sumlin. Doc Ventura plays baritone guitar and sings, to more closely emulate the sound of artists like Hound Dog Taylor who performed without a bass player. Eddie Layman is an accomplished jazz artist with numerous credits spanning decades. Together they lay it down in the authentic style, without irony or commentary or corn ball antics.
"Delta by the Beach" started as a one-time only show band. The members loved playing together so much that they decided to continue and have recorded a number of original blues songs that will be released MONTHLY in 2021.
If you like the blues, you'll like them more. If you love the blues...well you already know.
