Mersey Delta Blues Band
I wonder if you could spare a few minutes to read about my band.
My name is Ian Boyle, I live in Bebington, Wirral and I have been playing the blues harmonica for many years mainly playing for fun.

But in the last three years I have taken the instrument far more seriously and have managed to push boundaries of the instrument to an extremely advanced level. I have studied and taken lessons from some of the world s top players.
Eighteen months ago, I decided to put together a blues band. It needed to be something a bit special so, I began by researching and watching all the top blues bands in the Liverpool area and although there are a few good ones I felt I could improve on what is on offer. After widening my search and checking out bands and attending gigs all over the UK a plan started to form.
I began my search for musicians who were not only talented but could think out of the box and had a good sense of dynamics. After a few false starts I eventually came up with a fantastic line up of experienced local musicians who have bought into a Harmonica led Blues Band and The Mersey Delta Blues Band was born.
A rock solid base man (Bri Elmer) along with one of Liverpool s best drummers (Phil Bernia) ensures our engine room is pumping along with plenty of energy. A Liverpool legend (John Hall) that specializes in blues slide guitar provides that authentic taste of the back-porch blues and our amazing pro lead guitar/sax player (Neil Gaskill) who will bring his experience of playing around the world to the table and promises a taste of New Orleans. Then of course there s me the wailing honking front man born to play the blues.
