'Sweet' Johnny Guitar
Armand has been in blues and rock and roll bands for more than 50 years; starting getting together with groups in the 60's, then moved to Oakland Ca and discovered a vibrant music scene developing. He has since been playing in the SF bay area as it has evolved, joining the Delta Dogs in 2007.
Roger started playing guitar in high school. He had played in several bay area bands during what has turned into a very lengthy musical career. He joined the Delta Dogs back in the glory days of playing the Roundup on Thursday nights. When not playing with the Delta Dogs, Roger hosts a very popular open mic in the south bay.
Dennis Erokan has had as a lot of fun on stage with most of the great music stars of the Bay Area for 25 years as the Executive Producer of the Bay Area Music Awards. That meant he got to jam after the show with some of these incredible stars. He has played bass along side Sweet Johnny Guitar for most of his life and still finds notes to play. Dennis launched the second coming of Bay Area Musician's Magazine. The world wide web will never be the same.
Don first starting performing music (bluegrass) on bango in the streets of Montreal during college.
He played on college radio and at street fairs like the St Laurent Street Festival, and folk venues such as the Yellow Door Coffee House.
A native of Toronto, he later returned to Ontario and did some community TV with a local folk group, Shanty.
The change came when he bought his first Fender electric guitar; Don realized his love for blues, rock, R&B, and Rock-a-billy.
After moving to Northern California he spent some time studying with Bay Area blues legend Johnny Nitro.
A long time fan of Creedence Clear Water Revival it was happenstance that connected Don with Josh Fogerty (John's son)
and the Delta Dogs. It's all good, Rock-on friends
Rock & Roll and Electric Blues Band
Josh has played in several groups over the years. He has ventured into other styles of music (Bluegrass / Metal but not at the same time...yet?) He usually finds his way back to Rock n' Roll and Blues bands.
