UPDATED 3/1 WATCH: Damon Fowler's Sugar Shack Mondays with John Lisi & Delta Funk

UPDATED 3/1: Watch my intro (1 min.), performance by John Lisi & Delta Funk (60 min.), my interview with Lisi (8 min). Good times!

This week's edition of Damon Fowler's Sugar Shack Mondays will be spiced up by New Orleans' John Lisi & Delta Funk.

From Lisi's bio:
By the age of 15, John was playing in bands in Tampa Fl. with much older musicians, honing the skill that would later become his trademark.

Then it was on to Los Angeles, where stints with blues, funk, rockabilly, swing, reggae and even metal bands would lead to the montage of genres that defines his music today. He also did studio guitar work for popular shows such as "L.A. Law" and "Quantum Leap."

After a few years performing on stages across the United States, Europe, Canada and Mexico, John made New Orleans home and soon found himself playing with legends such as Dr. John, Cyril Neville ... Galactic ... and Tab Benoit.

Lisi was also a member and principle song writer for blues super group 6 Strings Down.

Amidst a plethora of talent, the young man made a name for himself through his offbeat portrayals of life, the honesty ringing from his sultry voice and his ability to make his fingers fly over a Dobro, mandolin, steel guitar or Stratocaster as the mood took him.
