The Blasters exemplify the best traditions of American Music, performing with passion and honesty that for over three decades has won the hearts and souls of fans worldwide. Composed of founding members vocalist-guitarist Phil Alvin, drummer Bill Bateman and bassist John Bazz with Keith Wyatt on guitar, they carry on a hard-won legacy as one of the most recognizable and credible bands in American Music. Their influences range from the likes of George Jones and Carl Perkins to Ike Turner, Howlin’ Wolf, James Brown and Big Joe Turner, all blending into a sound that ignores the lines between Rock & Roll, Country, Blues and Rockabilly. "Fun On Saturday Night" (Rip Cat Records) is the Blasters' sixth and latest studio album, featuring twelve tracks that extend the band’s legacy of classic recordings. Fronted by Phil Alvin's powerful vocals, the band follows through with spontaneity, power and grit that make their live performances into experiences not to be missed.
The Delta Bombers have smashed stages all over the world since 2008 and have no plans of stopping anytime soon. Driven by a hybrid of 50’s rock and roll fused with blues and the most exciting elements of rockabilly, the band’s haunting but powerful voice Chris Moinichen constantly keeps the songs fresh. The goal of the band has always been to build something people who wear gabardine, denim or mohawks could enjoy together. The Delta Bombers continue to tour new and distant places such as Russia and the Czech Republic supported by four studio albums. What started as a teenage dream has now come to fruition as a worldwide rock and roll expedition, one that should be witnessed by anyone who considers themselves a fan of music!
