The Delta Generators Blues the Bull Run
January 21 @ 8:00 pm
Blues band The Delta Generators’ “kickass confluence of guitars, blues harp and rhythm” come to the Bull Run Jan. 21.
The Generators and singer/harmonica player Brian Templeton, who most know from his former Boston-based band, The Radio Kings or from his great solo albums, blend the fine line between rhythm and blues and Americana. Roots Music Report called them “A kickass confluence of guitars, blues harp and rhythm meets up with consistently strong vocals and an ear-grabbing array of fresh and varied originals, from the searing to the soulful.”
The Delta Generators have accomplished a lot since forming in 2008. In 2009 they were a top 10 Finalist out of over a hundred bands in the International Blues Challenge. Also in 2009 they won an Independent Music Award for Best Blues Album for their debut album, “Devil in the Rhythm” and were voted Best Blues Band in Worcester Magazine. In 2010 the DG’s were nominated for Best R&B Act in the Boston Phoenix. In 2011 their 2nd album “Hard River to Row” was selected by the Blues Foundation as a Top 5 Finalist (out of entries worldwide) in the Best Self Produced CD competition at the International Blues Challenge. This album also placed nationally at # 8 on the JamBand Radio Chart, # 17 on the Living Blues Radio Chart and #25 in the Roots Music Report. In 2011 the DG’s were nominated for Best Blues Act by The Boston Music Awards. In 2013 they were nominated for Best Blues Band by Worcester Magazine Music Awards. In 2014 the DG’s 3rd album “Get On The Horse” won (another) Independent music Award for Best Blues Album. In 2016 the band was nominated for a New England Music Award for Best Blues Band.
