These boys ain’t no “nouveau-retro” affectation! They wear their blues credentials and big band music pedigree on their sleeves. Call ’em white-boy soul or rhythm ’n’ blues, with a generous dollop of snake oil, spit and a sly wink; The Delta Riggs are as jubilant, joyously gritty, and steeped in classic freak ’n’ roll as ever a band was.
Musically, The Delta Riggs are as comfortable careening from scuffed ol’ time country to kick-in-the-teeth rawk. “So long as it’s got three chords, a cool beat and our version of the truth, that sums us up,” laughs Guitarist and Aaron Jackson.
Sure enough, live is where the band hit their stride, and the hubbub has already started. Especially after their knock out performance at Big Sound Live showcases 2010.
Big Sound is a music industry conference held in Brisbane each September, and always attracts national and international music names. Big Sound Live showcases the best in emerging Australian music.
Big Sound is presented by Q Music, Big Sound Live recordings produced by John Robinson at Beau FM, Recorded and Mixed by Matt Dever of Song Doctor Productions.
