House Blend | 11/2011 SCV House Blend Music Show: The Deltaz
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Above the beautiful beaches and glamorous neighborhoods of Malibu, deep in the secluded mountains, you can hear the pulse of Mississippi Delta Blues, the harmony of American folk music, and the rumble of a retro rock power trio — this sound is THE DELTAZ. The Deltaz began with two brothers — John and Ted Siegel. Since they were boys they idolized the great musicians of the past. As soon as they were able, they sought to imitate the subjects of their admiration.
First John picked up a pair of drum sticks, and soon after Ted became infatuated with the local music store’s window display guitar. They played, they listened and they forged what would become The Deltaz core sound. Through vocal harmonization, insightful songwriting, and powerful musicianship, The Deltaz experience is truly unique. The raw energy and authenticity of their live shows is captivating and unforgettable. Although The Deltaz play music that is unmistakably influenced by the artists of the past, they provide audiences with a new take on some of the greatest popular music in history.
At their studio located within their remote mountain residence, The Deltaz are constantly writing, rehearsing and recording their music. The Deltaz perform shows at local Los Angeles rock venues, college campuses, dive bars, street performances, and campgrounds. Keep an eye out they may be in your neighborhood next!
