Delta Highway
This week:
BRANDON SANTINI &
THE DELTA HIGHWAY
SIT ON
THE COUCH


Founder / vocalist / harmonica player Brandon Santini gave birth to Delta Highway back in 2003. They are now a staple in the Memphis area. I caught their act at the Ground Zero Blues Club here in Memphis two years ago and they blew the roof off the joint.

Now with a new, improved lineup Santini has upped the ante and is looking to make a huge splash.

In 2009 Santini was nominated for a Blues Music Award for "Best New Artist Debut," joined forces with BLUZAPALOOZA for two incredible shows in Cairo, Egypt and toured relentlessly across the country. Now Brandon
brings in new and familiar faces to his exciting new project "Brandon Santini & Delta Highway."

Elliot Sowell (Guitar) hails from Texas originally and has resided in St. Louis, MO for the past several years and spent time handling guitar duties with The Rockin' Jake Band.

Tom "Slim" Louis (Bass) will be returning to the band after nearly a year and a half absence. He also recently toured with The Rockin' Jake Band and was also a member of Jason Ricci & New Blood.

Rounding out the new lineup is Derek Bonn (Drums) a St. Louis resident and a member of Los Carnales and has backed other artists such as Arthur Williams, Nick Curran, and Kirk Fletcher.

They have new music coming down the pike, and will be sitting on The Couch to giving us a peak at the future of the band and their music.

Highlighting Memphis area bands is a thrill for this Memphian!
