Friday, Sept. 21, 7:30-9:00 pm – Bud Light Stage 

Native to Lansing, Those Delta Rhythm Kings play the music of jump blues and little big band legends like Count Basie, T-Bone Walker, Roy Brown, and B.B. King along with original compositions and modern classics. Initially founded in 1982 as a trio to personify the party-time culture prevalent in post-war America, they have grown through several changes to become the band they are today. TDRK play venues all over the Midwest and Canada, and have released three albums to popular and critical acclaim across the country and in Europe. TDRK have backed James Harman and have opened for artists including Roomful of Blues, Mark Hummel, Rod Piazza, Bobby Rush and many others. TDRK won the Capitol Area Blues Brawl twice and competed at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis in 1996 and 2004. In demand at festivals and community events, they swing hard and heavy, delivering knockout performances that appeal to crowds of all ages whenever they perform.
