Driven by a 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 and divorcing. All of this life experience may explain their flare for illuminating everyman’s joys, sorrows, triumphs, and losses. A wide spectrum of people, undivided by culture, age, or socioeconomic status, have long embraced The Brothers’ music.
Often referred to as Los Angeles’ best kept secret, The Delgado Brothers stormed to the blues world forefront this past January as they captured the title at the International Blues Challenge and brother Joey took home the prized best guitarist trophy. No strangers to the Northwest blues circuit, the Delgado Brothers have been headlining festivals and venues throughout the region. To witness a Delgado Brothers live performance is to testify to the synergy, emotion, work ethic and true musicianship of the band.
That opportunity to catch them live happens on Sunday, May 15, for an afternoon performance at The Birk, 11139 Hwy 202, Birkenfeld. The show begins at 2:00 pm. Admission is $10.00, with the doors opening at noon.
Then, on Monday night, May 16, the Delgado Brothers will be joining Jonathan “Oogie” Richards for a remote live broadcast of NWCZ Radio from The Birk, starting at 6:30 pm. Doors open at 4:00 pm and admission is $10.00. And during the broadcast, two free tickets to the Sunbanks Music Festival will be given away.
