During the tour the band will also perform at Daryl’s House, the venue owned by Hall & Oates’ Darryl Hall. The current east coast leg of the Sugar Shack tour ends on April 8 at the Boulton Center in Bay Shore, NY.

DELTA DEEP will be touring in support of their soon to be released live album ‘Delta Deep West Coast Live’, featuring songs recorded during the inaugural January Sugar Shack California west coast run. The album, due out this summer, features full performances from their sold-out shows with fans and critics’ alike raving about the bands live show. San Francisco’s BAM Magazine said of the show, “the live experience for Delta Deep is one not to be missed…Debbi Blackwell-Cook is mesmerizing!”

Collen initially started DELTA DEEP in 2012 after jamming over the course of a year with friend and relative, Debbi Blackwell-Cook. What started as a casual pairing singing Motown and classic blues staples quickly became a quartet who share a love for soul, funk and the blues when they added STP’s Robert DeLeo and India.

Jeff Beck, Buddy Guy: Summer Tour dates announced with the Blues legend!

Jeff Beck, Buddy Guy: Summer Tour dates announced with the Blues legend!


(Los Angeles, CA – March 14, 2016) Announced today, JEFF BECK will be performing throughout the U.S. this summer, beginning on July 19th in Port Chester, NY, before hitting NYC, CT, NJ, PA, VA, MI and a special stop at the Ravinia Festival in Highland Park, IL, on Sunday, July 31st. BECK will then head down to Nashville before making the trek west to Los Angeles. As was previously announced, BECK will make a very special appearance at the Hollywood Bowl on August 10th to celebrate 50 years of ‘dynamic music making’. Guitar icon Buddy Guy will co-headline all dates, except where noted below.

Over the course of BECK’s illustrious 50-year career, the trailblazing guitarist has earned many accolades. He’s been inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame – twice! First, as a member of the Yardbirds in 1992 and then again, as a solo artist in 2009. Rolling Stone Magazine ranked him as one of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time” and he has earned a total of 8 Grammy Awards during his long career. In addition, BECK has been a guest performer at scores of sessions with everyone from Stevie Wonder and Buddy Guy to Tina Turner and Mick Jagger. Throughout his career, BECK routinely makes the fantastically difficult sound effortless.

Currently, BECK has been hard at work on his first book, focused on his twin inspirations - hot rodding and rock'n'roll - now bound together. The London-based Genesis Publishing Group plans to release BECK01, a high quality “signed, limited-edition” book, this year. In BECK01 Jeff Beck takes us on the journey of a lifetime. Over five decades, he has blazed a trail, forging a unique guitar style lauded by critics, fans and fellow guitar legends.

John Mayer: PRS Guitars and John Mayer Introduce Limited Edition Private Stock Super Eagle

PRS Guitars and John Mayer Introduce Limited Edition Private Stock Super Eagle

(STEVENSVILLE, MD) March 11, 2016 –PRS Guitars and John Mayer have announced a special run of Private Stock “Super Eagle” instruments. The Private Stock Super Eagle is the result of a very close collaboration between famed guitar maker Paul Reed Smith and Grammy-winning musician John Mayer. The goal of the partnership was to create a highly-sophisticated and unique instrument that at once reveres the history of guitar-making and guitar tone but pushes the boundaries of materials, design, and craftsmanship. The result is a truly new PRS instrument that embodies the PRS Private Stock culture of meticulous workmanship as well as Mayer’s keen eye for playability, tone, and detail.

“Working with John has been a truly rewarding experience. His knowledge and understanding of guitars is highly sophisticated,” said Paul Reed Smith. “We were on the phone on a literally daily basis attacking this project, and I am so proud to see this guitar on stage and in the studio with John and to be able to offer it to musicians and collectors to enjoy.”

Some of the more distinctive and personalized specifications Mayer and Smith decided on for this special run of instruments include a longer (for PRS) scale length of 25.375”, specially-wound 58/15 JM treble and bass pickups with a specially-wound Narrowfield JM pickup in the middle position (with three individual coil-tap mini-switches), a JCF Audio preamp with treble boost, as well as a hand-signed sticker in the f-hole of the guitar that was designed by Mayer’s friend David Smith (who also designed the cover art for Mayer’s 2012 “Born and Raised” album). The pickups deliver a bright, clear tone that has been heard in venues across the USA in Mayer’s recent performances with Dead & Company.

But according to Mayer, this guitar won’t stop with Dead & Company. "Paul and I worked very closely to create this guitar, and the result is an incredibly refined and elegant instrument. It has a completely new sound and spirit. It's been a joy to play and I'm excited to share that experience with other guitar players," John Mayer.

The Private Stock Super Eagle is available for order from March 11, 2016 – April 1, 2016 only. PRS will be capping production at 100 instruments. Images, video, and full specifications can be found at To order your Private Stock Super Eagle, please contact an Authorized PRS Private Stock Dealer
