Fleet fingerpicking, stinging slide guitar, compelling vocals. Drums, upright bass, churning out rock-solid, caffeinated swing rhythms. Playful originals, standards, and the deepest swamp blues. A favorite of the Crescent City club scene, Jeremy Lyons and The Deltabilly Boys have toured the US and Europe. They have become a mainstay of the world-famous New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. Lyons’ albums, Deltabilly Swing, Count Your Chickens Before They Hatch, Live at Fribourg, Jeremy Lyons & the Deltabilly Boys, and Live at the Dragon’s Den have received critical acclaim nationally and abroad.
“Big Easy trio Jeremy Lyons & the Deltabilly Boys go down like cold beer on a warm afternoon.” — Blues Revue
“They kick up a hellacious dancing groove that all the nouveau swing bands would shave their goatees to possess.” — Blues Access
