Join The Delgado Brothers for a great night of Latin Blues and Soul. It's also keyboardist David “B” Kelley’s birthday. The Brothers will be performing songs off their upcoming album, “Two Trains” on Bell Asher Records and more.
The DELGADO BROTHERS - Driven by fierce independence, unified by family, and fortified by the brotherhood of music, the Delgado Brothers deliver the musical goods; topical anthem-worthy songs complemented by call-to-action lyrics, and East L.A. Soul. For over 30 years the Delgado Brothers have been music makers, collaborators and ordinary citizens; raising children, grieving the loss of parents, marrying & divorcing. All of these life experiences explain their flare for illuminating everyman's joys, sorrows, triumphs and losses. The Brothers' music has long been embraced both locally and globally by a wide spectrum of people undivided by culture, age or socioeconomic status.
The Delgado Brothers have longtime been referred to as Los Angeles’ best kept secret. So just who are these quintessential musicians? The Delgado Brothers are eldest brother Bob Delgado on bass, middle brother Joey D on guitar and vocals, younger brother Steve on drums and vocals, and David “B” Kelley on Hammond B3. Each member of the band brings a unique style of musicianship to the Delgado Brothers brand. Indiana- bred David B. Kelley came West in search of “groove and diversity”. An incredibly gifted musician, David’s playing on his “Vintage 1972 Hammond B3” adds tone, texture and depth to the sound and songs.
To witness a Delgado Brothers’ live performance is to testify to the synergy, emotion, work ethic and true musicianship of the band. Their 4th CD, Learn to Fly, released in 2009 is testament to the band’s long evolution and scope of musical diversity. Raising a variety of real world concerns from the topical, ‘I Wanna Know (what the fighting's about)’, to the meaningful
and brilliantly nuanced, ‘Man Without Plan’. Featured players on Learn to Fly include: Lee Thornburg, who led and arranged the all-star horn section of Paulie Cerra & Arturo Velasco. Critically acclaimed Latin jazz players, The Banda Brothers with Ramon on timbales and drums and brother Tony on bass. Slide guitar great David “Hound-Dog” Melton, blues singing sensation Sherry Pruitt, and the legendary Chambers Brothers of classic hit songs ‘Time’ and ‘People Get Ready’ fame, who sang on “If The World”.
Tug on the Delgado Brothers musical roots and you’ll find big brother Bob’s bass-playing days tied into the East Los Angeles band, Thee Exotics circa 1960’s. Yet another brother, Eddie played with Thee Ambertones during the same period. Creating a perfect musical environment, for younger brothers Steve and Joey only to aspire to. For years the Delgado Brothers band played venues, clubs and special events throughout Los Angeles and the San Gabriel Valley. In 1987 after being sighted at the in-famous “L.A. Street Scene”, they released their first album on the Hightone Records, with Dennis Walker and Bruce Bromberg, the same producers responsible for Robert Cray’s hit-making success.
