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.
