all songs written and performed by michael van merwyk.

guitars: my always reliable workhorse, a cole clark fat lady; my 1976 dobro, given to me by my good friend piet ebenfeld; my one-string-diddley-bow made by my good friend harry fricke...chords are totally overrated!

this cd is dedicated to everybody who worked his way out of the darkness into the light.

The Delta Boys are: Gerd Gorke - Vocals, Harp Michael van Merwyk - Vocals, Guitar, Dobro, Weissenborn

The "Front Porch" is a place where music is played, taught and learned from one musician to another - no matter if you play Blues, Folk, Country or whatever comes to mind. A place, where real people communicate through music and stories.

Everybody has his own life with stories about love and loss, about joy and pain, about sunshine and rain...in the end it´s all about the song, about keeping the story alive....probably change it here and there to put your own personality into the song.

The Delta Boys turn every stage into a "Front Porch", where the music is played live, acoustic and with lot´s of soul. You can dance, clown, drink, party, listen, have fun or look for romance, they deliver the Soundtrack to a nice and soulful time.

Strong beat, big voices, wailin´ harmonica and a bunch of good songs, that´s what the Delta Boys are all about. Listen and enjoy!
