Discovering Tony Furtado is like finding out about one of your guitar heroes’ obscure influences — someone you’ve never heard of who’s been around for a while and plays to beat the devil.
It was only a matter of time until upstate New York child prodigy guitarist Joe Bonamassa came into his own. Having explored everything from blues to boogie to Southern rock to jazz — and all between the ages of 4 and 27 — he’s back to the blues again.

They created a band with two slide guitarists. But unlike double-lead-guitar groups such as the Allmans, Skynyrd or the Outlaws, Delta Moon doesn’t employ the note-for-note unison technique. The sliders play their notes in between each other’s, creating a strange polyrhythm with a unique effect on the central nervous system. Occasionally, they’ll cross paths, and that’s when the fun begins.
