    Greetings Delta Generators!

    I was on the blues train on July 31st. Loved your music, bought several cds, including one for a friend of mine in the UK – known as Bob Blues on the radio program he hosts each week on dekadance-radio.com

    You might like to check out his show on Tuesday and Fridays from 5-7 eastern standard time. Drop him a line!

    Cheers and thank you for a wonderful evening of great music. I found your music to be innovative while respectful of the old time blues…you obviously have a tight connection between members of the group and it shows. You speak to one another musically and it’s a pleasure to watch.
