Description: Fleet fingerpicking, stinging slide guitar. 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, since Hurricane Katrina and the New Orleans levee failure, Jeremy Lyons has relocated to the Northeast. He plays mostly with new friends, but also with his old Deltabilly Boys when the opportunity arises. Lyons started out his professional career in the early 1990s on the streets of the Crescent City, playing his National guitar with the infamous Big Mess Blues Band, led by Augie Junior. (Other members included Lissa "Washboard Annie" Driscoll, Butch Trivette, Kenny Holladay, Corey Harris, Steve Lewins, Johnny Duff, Greg Schatz, Nervous Duane Norman, Scott Kirby, Bobby Lewis DiTullio, Paul Kemnitz, Norman Lee Shepperd, etc.) "Jeremy Lyons & the Deltabilly Boys" was formed in 1997 with drummer Paul Santopadre and fellow busker Greg Schatz on upright bass. Hundreds of gigs a year in smoky New Orleans dives and international festivals solidified their sound. Jeremy played on vintage electric guitars, mixing rockabilly beats and southern picking with slide guitar, stretching out on surf and western instrumentals, and playing the New Orleans swamp blues with startling intensity.
