Death of a Street Singer
The Deltabilly Boys have been a favorite of the Crescent City Music scene for over a decade. Slide guitarist and former French Quarter street singer Jeremy Lyons fronts the group. Greg Schatz (of the Schatzy Band) sings backup and plays stand-up bass, and Paul Santopadre (of the Songdogs and Coco Robicheaux) lays down the drumbeats like only he can. After making a name for themselves at their now legendary monday night Dragon's Den gig, the trio released five albums, toured the US and Europe several times, and played the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival seven consecutive years. Since Hurricane Katrina, Lyons relocated with his family to the Northeast, where he gigs regularly with former mebers of the rock band Morphine. He returns to New Orleans to reunite with his Boys, and to release their long-awaited CD of all original material, 'Death of a Street Singer,' completed shortly before the flood that drove Lyons from his chosen hometown.
