    Drawing from a mix of sources that includes R.L. Burnside, Little Feat, Mississippi Fred McDowell, John Hiatt, early ’70s Stones and more, DELTA MOON is a genuine grassroots blues phenomenon.

They’ve since become a local and regional powerhouse draw in a time when many blues venues are struggling. How far will they go? “www.deltamoon.com” less...

Onstage, these guys are serious about being an entertaining blues band. Offstage, bandleader Carlos Capote is just as committed to advancing the band to the next level. less...

    Costello and band demonstrate genuine passion for blues, jazz and roots music. Costello recorded and toured with Grammy-nominated Susan Tedeschi in 1998, but by year’s end was back in Atlanta, musically adrift. Now 21, he has rebounded mightily. His second CD, Cuttin’ In, released in February, has earned airplay in the U.K. and Holland. He’s touring nationally, playing festivals and such top blues clubs as Buddy Guy’s Legends in Chicago and Black Diamond in Memphis. less...
