While in college, he created a band to perform for credit, an anthology of the evolution of the blues from it’s birth in field hollers to it’s electrified form in the big cities like Chicago.The band started by playing the clubs in Oakland – Esther’s Orbit Room and The Continental Club, and Mandrake’s and The New Orleans House in Berkeley. Around this time, Lowell Fulson sat-in with the DELTA WIRES at the New Orleans House in Berkeley and Ernie sat-in with the Freddie King Band at Mandrakes in Berkeley. This was followed by a performance with Buddy Guy and Junior Wells at Keystone Berkeley. The Delta Wires then began to open shows for these blues greats, and continued to grow as musicians and as a band. The DELTA WIRES name was derived from the image of a band playing a high-energy electrified musical style born in the field hollers of the Mississippi Delta which evolved into the blues and ultimately led to the migration to Chicago of the Delta bluesmen. What began as a college project and anthology of blues music from the Mississippi Delta to the South Side of Chicago, inevitably evolved into a band which has become known for its originality, versatility, and crisp, tight, exciting sound.
