The Delta Generators blend the fine line between rhythm and blues and Americana in a way that makes them anything but average. In 2017, they released their first live album, Delta Generators Live At The Spire, with their new singer/ harmonica player, Brian Templeton, who most know from his former Boston-based band, The Radio Kings or from his great solo albums.
The Delta Generators have accomplished a lot since forming in 2008. In 2009 they were a top 10 Finalist out of over a hundred bands in the International Blues Challenge. Also in 2009 they won an Independent Music Award for Best Blues Album for their debut album, "Devil in the Rhythm" and were voted Best Blues Band in Worcester Magazine. In 2010 the DGs were nominated for Best R&B Act in the Boston Phoenix. In 2011 their 2nd album "Hard River to Row" was selected by the Blues Foundation as a Top 5 Finalist (out of entries worldwide) in the Best Self Produced CD competition at the International Blues Challenge. This album also placed nationally at # 8 on the JamBand Radio Chart, # 17 on the Living Blues Radio Chart and #25 in the Roots Music Report. In 2011 the DGs were nominated for Best Blues Act by The Boston Music Awards. In 2013 they were nominated for Best Blues Band by Worcester Magazine Music Awards. In 2014 the DGs 3rd album "Get On The Horse" won (another) Independent music Award for Best Blues Album. In 2016 the band was nominated for a New England Music Award for Best Blues Band.
Brian Templeton - vocals, harmonica, acoustic guitar; Charlie ONeal - guitar;

Roots Music Report called them "A kickass confluence of guitars, blues harp and rhythm meets up with consistently strong vocals and an ear-grabbing array of fresh and varied originals, from the searing to the soulful."
The Bull Run is a full-service, farm-to-table restaurant in a pre-revolutionary tavern, located about 35 miles NW of Boston, with plenty of free parking and rustic, old-world charm.
