Jeremy Lyons has entertained thousands on the streets of the Crescent City, armed with no more than his naked voice and a National guitar. His band The Deltabilly Boys, a favorite of the New Orleans club circuit, is a mainstay at New Orleans' Jazz Fest. The group has toured Europe and the US, most recently opening dates for the world famous Preservation Hall Jazz Band.

Jeremy Lyons, formally of New Orleans, is a displaced Katrina refugee now living in Cambridge, MA.
New Orleans' loss is New England's gain!!!
Although he continues to play select dates in and around New Orleans with The Deltabilly Boys, his Boston group consists of Jerome Dupree on drums. Jerome was a founding member of the seminal Boston jazz/rock band Morphine. Robbie Phillips, who played bass with the legendary Howard Armstrong during the last years of his life, plays the diddley bow (a two string bass instrument of his own invention) with Jeremy.

"Jeremy Lyons has invoked the spirit of Robert Johnson and his contemporaries. The fluid finger picking and searing slides set the swinging rhythm ablaze. The resulting sound is thick with tradition, yet somehow refreshing and unconventional."

-- Where Y'at Magazine, New Orleans, LA

"Big Easy trio Jeremy Lyons & the Deltabilly Boys go down like cold beer on a warm afternoon."

--Blues Revue

"They kick up a hellacious dancing groove that all the nouveau swing bands would shave their goatees to posess."
-- Blues Access
