Smiley, ginger haired keyboard maestro, Steve Swatkins (Juno What?!, Allen Stone), returns to the lounge with his powerhouse funk and soul outfit featuring drummer Tyrone Hendrix (Stevie Wonder) and synth bass/keyboardist Mike Elson (Excellent Gentlemen) for a pre-4th throw down with New Orleans’ Deltaphonic!

Deltaphonic is a New Orleans collective, primarily touring as a duo, that blends fingerpicking blues rock, funk, and roots rock into a surprisingly big sound. Since its formation in 2014, the band has released two critically acclaimed albums, performed at the 2018 New Orleans French Quarter Fest as well as some of New Orleans’ most iconic venues, and maintained a national tour schedule averaging 100 dates/year.

Propelled by the frenetic performances and memorable songwriting of band leader Andrew T. Weekes and drummer Ciaran Brennan, Deltaphonic has cultivated a distinct sound that veteran music critic Robert Fontenot described this way: “If you opened a lounge outdoors in a graveyard next to a swamp, this would be the only album you’d need on the jukebox … NOLA finally has an answer for the Black Keys and the White Stripes—dark Americana with history’s dust shaken off.”

Though primarily touring as a duo, Deltaphonic consistently performs with variety of guest musicians in New Orleans with Weekes being the only member present at every show. Past guests include Khris Royal, Paul Provosty (Earphunk), Ed Williams (The Revivalists), Eric “Benny” Bloom (Lettuce, Pretty Lights Live Band), Russell Batiste (The Funky Meters), and many more. The band is currently working on a third album set for release in 2019. $10

    Been catching Swatkins since he was playing with Excellent Gentlemen for a couple dozen people at the Jolly Roger. He’s really grown and taken off. So proud of him….but now our little secret is out, it’s a bit tough to secure tickets to some of his shows. Love to see him funk up the Goodfoot for our Bluesfest pre-funk.

    This would be interesting. The goodfoot is cozy and fun. Gonna kick up the skirt and shake that tail feather.

    Love Stawkins and so proud to see him rise into fame over the years. He’s grown a lot in what is actually a rather short period of time. Touring with Allen Stone & hitting the stage with Lettuce with are phenomenally noteworthy accomplishments! Glad he’s keeping his roots by continuing to play locally at the ‘Foot.
