Join us May 27, 2023 at 6pm and listen to Live Music featuring the Delta Sonics
The Delta Sonics music takes a Chicago Blues base and seasons it with Swing, Delta, N’awlins R&B and some early Rock n’ Roll. They were Westword’s best blues band in Denver the last six of nine years. The band made the semi-finals in the Memphis (International Blues Challenge) in 2012. They have been featured at many of the major festivals in Colorado and Wyoming. The Delta Sonics have played the Taste of Colorado, Pearl St. Blues & Brews, the Greeley Blues Jam, Boulder Creek Fest ,Parker Days, Denver BBQ Fest, Cheyenne Frontier Days, Cherry Creek Arts Fest, Blues On The Mesa and many others.
Al Chesis supplies vocals & foot stomping showmanship but it’s his harmonica playing that grabs you. He has been a Hohner harmonica endorsee since 1992 and recently received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Colorado Blues Society. Bob Pellegrino supplies the dazzling, slide guitar. Bob was the Colorado Blues Society’s best slide guitar player in three years in a row. Rising bass star Alissa Chesis and Stefan Flores on drums ‘drive the bus’ and are a grooving rhythm section.
The Sonics have been the Mile Hi ‘go-to’ band for touring Blues national acts for 15 yrs. The band has backed national blues acts like Big Bill Morganfield, Steadyrollin’ Bob Margolin, Ronnie Baker Brooks, grammy -nominated Lurrie Bell, grammy-nominated John Primer and the late Pinetop Perkins, & the late Bo Diddley.
The Delta Sonics opened for BB King (twice) Robert Cray ( three times) and Jimmy Vaughn (twice) among many others. Al Chesis is a featured guest on Big Head Todd’s album “Black Beehive ”
