Review: Delta by the Beach

Delta By The Beach has released their latest single, which is also titled “Delta by the Beach”. Delta by the Beach plays original rocking, song-oriented juke joint music. The trio has been described as ‘Chuck Berry crossed with Muddy Waters’.

You can hear “Delta by the Beach” on Spotify below:

The self-titled single continues the trio’s signature juke joint style of music, with a simple, grooving blues riff song that features each of the member’s strengths. Lyrically, the song is all about getting back to your little slice of heaven. The track has an infectious groove provided by the simple yet effective drum and bass rhythm section that provides the foundation for a really tasteful guitar solo. The first solo soon gives way to a rocking jazz harp solo that is played through a distorted green bullet type microphone. The interplay between the guitar and harmonica is very nice as well.

Delta by the Beach is Doc Ventura, Milo Sledge, and Eddie Layman. Doc Ventura plays baritone guitar and sings, to more closely emulate the sound of artists like Jimmy Reed and Hound Dog Taylor who performed without a bass player.

Guitarist Milo Sledge plays his vintage Kay guitar in the styles of Elmore James and Hubert Sumlin. He is known for his feel for raw haunting country blues styles. He plays blues harp on many of our songs. His slide work is a regular feature of our shows. 

Eddie Layman is an accomplished jazz artist with numerous credits spanning decades. He is a veteran of the New York jazz scene and also spent time playing the famous ‘Chitlin Circuit’ of blues and soul clubs in the South.
