Summer Concert – Delta Sonics


The Littleton Museum and the Friends of the Library and Museum are delighted to welcome families back to the museum front lawn for the 2021 Summer Concert Series. The concerts are free with first-come, first-served open seating. Attendees should gather with caution and are encouraged to wear masks and social distance, especially for those who are not vaccinated. For continued safety measures, there will be no food trucks or beverage service this year. You are welcome to bring your own blankets or lawn chairs and a picnic basket of snacks.

The Delta Sonics music takes a Chicago Blues base and seasons it with Swing, Delta, N’awlins R&B and some early Rock n’ Roll. They were Westword’s best blues band in Denver the last six of seven years and made the semi-finals in the Memphis (International Blues Challenge) in 2012, after defeating 25 other Colorado bands. The Sonics have been THE Mile Hi ‘go-to’ band for touring Blues national acts for 15 yrs, backing national blues acts like Big Bill Morganfield, Steadyrollin Bob Margolin, Ronnie Baker Brooks, grammy -nominated Lurrie Bell, grammy-nominated John Primer and the late Pinetop Perkins, and the late Bo Diddley.

Al Chesis supplies vocals and foot-stomping showmanship but it’s his harmonica playing that grabs you. He has been a Hohner endorser since 1992. Bob Pellegrino supplies the dazzling, slide guitar. Bob was the Colorado Blues Society’s best slide guitar player in three years in a row. Rising bass star Alissa Chesis and Stefan Flores on drums ‘drive the bus’ and are a grooving rhythm section .
