Delta Generators—You’re gonna love this band. They got great reviews on their third release “Get on the Horse.” Now, they’ve stepped up everything from songwriting to production. This album was mixed by famed Grammy-winning producer, David Z. (Prince, Eric Clapton, Jonny Lang, Buddy Guy, Etta James, Gov’t Mule, etc.). The album was then mastered by Dave McNair (David Bowie, Bob Dylan, Los Lobos, Derek Trucks, etc.). “Get on the Horse” was recorded just like every other DG album, live in the studio, with a few overdubs after the fact. The songs range from roots rock to slow blues, Americana to funky soul. This album was funded by DG fans through PledgeMusic.com.
The album has also WON the 2014 Blues Album of the Year by the Independent Music Awards Vox Populi.
They also added the talents of Brian David Templeton (formerly of The Radio Kings) to the band. He is their new lead singer/harmonica player extraordinaire.
Delta Generators formed in 2008 and have since won several awards including winning the Boston Blues Society Blues Challenge in 2008 and placing in the top ten at The International Blues Challenge in 2009.
In the last couple of years, the Delta Generators have shared the stage with such acts as Robert Cray, Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Three Dog Night, Jimmie Vaughn, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Johnny Winter, James Cotton, Walter Trout, Popa Chubby, Bonerama, Candye Kane, Michael Burks, John Lee Hooker Jr. and Sonny Landreth among many others. Notable musicians have also sat in with the Delta Generators on stage including Brad Whitford (Aerosmith).
The band sees Rick O’Neal on bass and his brother Charlie O’Neal on guitar, joined by singer-harmonica player Brian Templeton and drummer Jeff Armstrong. Mixing elements of blues and Louisiana funk with ’50s rock, the band are electrifying the New England music scene one show at a time.
