John Lisi & Delta Funk

Stephen Stills once said that the “one thing blues ain’t, is funny.” Obviously Mr. Stills has never sat in on an evening with John Lisi who, along with his band Delta Funk!, has made a career of turning the pitfalls of everyday life into funky-bluesy-body-shakin’ music that just makes a person feel better. Hailed as of the the best guitarists in Louisiana by Offbeat Magazine — quite a compliment in a state known for its musicians — John marries his sometimes humorous, sometimes serious lyrics with a guitar that can cry the blues one minute and break out the funk the next.
