This Friday, July 15, the Valencia Jazz & Blues Concert Series will feature the Delgado Brothers – first place winner of the 2016 International Blues Challenge held each year in Memphis, Tennessee. In addition to the band winning the IBC Challenge, Joey Delgado received The Albert King Best Guitarist Award.
The International Blues Challenge (IBC) is a five-day event that includes over 250 acts from 40 states and two dozen countries participate in the four rounds in Memphis.
“We are excited to welcome back this talented band of brothers, who have been making music for the past 45 years and entertaining our Valencia Jazz & Blues audiences for the past 10 years. Join us this Friday, as we celebrate their receiving this prestigious award,” said Barbara Myler, owner/producer of the VJB Series.
The Delgado Brothers Band deliver a mighty musical expression of artistic soul, rhythm and blues all spiced up with a fiery blend of hand crafted original music. They are a delicious fusion of soaring guitar virtuosity, melodious harmonies, and rock solid musicianship..Yet, the main reason their music strikes such a universal chord is the message in their original lyrics that reflect and reveal the ethos and pathos of our common humanity.
