The Delta Riggs wear their blues credentials and roots music pedigree on their sleeves. Call ’em white-boy soul or rhythm ’n’ blues, with a generous dollop of snake oil, spit and a slywink, The Delta Riggs are as jubilatory, joyously gritty, and steeped in genuine Americana and good time classic freak ’n’ roll as ever a band was. The songwriters behind this rollicking jamboree are front man Elliott Hammond and his bouffant-toting guitar player, Aaron Jackson. Both were raised on a staple diet of Bob Dylan, The Band, The Stones, Creedence, Led Zep and Grateful Dead. With their rootsy soul, ramshackle R’n’B, stunning gospel harmonies and swaggering blues, the Delta Riggs have picked up the torch of rock ’n’ roll’s free-wheeling spirit and are running with it.
