You're only gonna lose your cash in Nashville They won't give you the time of day in L.A. Your dreams will only be history in NYC Why don't you just stay here and play? You'd waste even an evening in Cleveland They'd make you look silly in Philly, PA You'll never recoup your costs in Boston Why don't you just stay here and play? In Detroit... you still have a home In Detroit... the river keeps on flowing In Detroit... there's nothing left but hope In Detroit... you best get going...`cause the best get gone You'll never win the battle in Seattle You'll only get burnt in Orlando, FLA There's nothing new to see in Memphis, Tennessee Why don't you just stay here and play? You're just gonna get lost in Austin There's no golden gate waiting at the Frisco Bay you know you got no home in Sweet Chicago Why don't you just stay here and play? CHORUS You're never gonna make the scene in New Orleans Las Vegas will just strip and spit you away There's only misery in St. Louie and KC Why don't you just stay here and play? (BREAK) Why don't you just stay here and play? (a capella) CHORUS (EXPLODE!) JAM endlessly

I'll be a fool for you - anything to see you smile I'll be a fool for you - anything to see you smile They may stare, I don't care - you make living worthwhile When I lost you - my world came to an end When I lost you - my whole world came to an end Nothing nobody could say - couldn't make `em comprehend Deep in the pit of my heart felt like an anchor sinking down Deep in the pit of my heart felt like an anchor sinking down Pulled below the undertow - knew I was gonna drown JAM on VERSE I cried out loud - it was my final choice I cried out loud - it was my final choice thought all hope was gone, gone – but somehow you heard my voice and you reached out and you rescued me… So I'll be a fool for you - anything to see you smile I'll be a fool for you - anything to see you smile They may stare, I don't care - you make living worthwhile c.3/10/2013 by Bob Young

It won't be long (it won't be long) until I'm feeling no pain (it won't be long) It won't be long (it won't be long) until I'm feeling no pain (no, it won't be long) A little help from my friends (just a little help) I'll be happy again Yesterday was hard, I couldn't break a smile Yesterday was so hard, couldn't even fake a smile Tonight my friends are around me and life is worthwhile CHORUS Sometimes it gets so dark, don't know how I'll survive Yeah, it gets so dark, I don't believe I'll survive but the light of my friends keeps the flame alive CHORUS JAM If you're down and out, don't know what you should do If you're down and out, and you don’t have a clue Call a friend or two (or three or four) – you know they’ll see you through And it won't be long (it won't be long) until you're feeling no pain (it won't be long) It won't be long (it won't be long) until you're feeling no pain (no, it won't be long) A little help from your friends (just a little help) You'll be happy again © 7/17/2013 by Bob Young

Lord, I've been working, working hard every day Now the factory's shuttin’ down, all the jobs are goin’ away I looked my baby in the eyes…I didn't know what to say I just hung my head down low, tried to force the tears away But it's just no use – feels like the blues are here to stay so I got on my knees - I began to pray (what can I do but pray at a time like this?) I cried, "Lord, Lord, Lord – what can I do or say? You know the bills will still keep coming, I won't have dollar one to pay; I ain't looking for a hand-out – I want to work my blues away - can you help me out?" JAM I want to work, work, work - work my blues away I want to work, work, work - work my blues away I ain't looking for a hand-out - I'll do my part to earn my pay. I want to work, work, work - work my blues away I ain't looking for a hand-out… I want to work my blues… away. © 3/15/2010 by Bob Young

We have exported our future and imported our chains and our precious little vision is now swirling down the drain we have sacrificed tomorrow for some self-serve gasoline that will hold us like the levee held the tide in New Orleans We have seen the truth... we changed the channel instead. We have lived the lie... Picked the blue pill, passed the red. In the matrix of our suburbs rot the vacant domiciles In the malls where we worship prey the priests and pedophiles In the parks we used to wander now they drill for liquid gold In the city lights our human rights are all but bought and sold We have seen the truth... we changed the channel instead. We have lived the lie... Picked the blue pill, passed the red. And now we finally wonder in the glare of our flat screen Is it all remotely true - this American dream? But maybe we should ask: is it what we really need? Is there a better vision that can nourish more than our greed? We have seen the truth... we changed the channel instead. We have lived the lie... Picked the blue pill, passed the red. © 2/2/2012 Bob Young

I used to take that junk so personally like a slamdance, everybody hammering me You could say the worst and I would believe that it's nobody’s fault except for me, but - ooh - maybe it's you (4x) Maybe mommy never said I was any good Maybe dad got mad when I did the best I could When your cold hard slap came out of the blue Tried to blame myself, then I thought it through - CHORUS Did you have a bad day? Did the bed bugs bite? Are you just a jerk looking for a fight? I'm a little naive, not that bright, But I think I finally see the light... So you can take stuff you're shoveling me spread it all around for my friends to see manipulate, fabricate, bait the hook but I won’t give it a second look, because - ooh - maybe it's you (3x) ooh - it’s probably you. Did you have a bad day? Did the bed bugs bite? Are you just a jerk looking for a fight? I'm a little naive, not that bright, But I think I finally see the light... ooh - maybe it's you (3x) ooh - it’s probably you. Definitely you. ©2/2/2012 by Bob Young

WC Handy - he kept the score Robert Johnson thumbed a ride and opened up the door of that car at the crossroads where he first got the blues We're just another generation trying to walk in their big shoes There was Jack Owens/Bud Spires, old Son House, Sonny Boy singing “One Way Out” Skip James lost his woman to the Devil’s noose (he wouldn’t cut her loose) We’re just another generation trying to walk in their big shoes. The blues will rock you, blues will roll The blues got rhythm and a ton of soul The blues sticks with you win or lose So we can’t help trying on these shoes McKinley Morganfield crossed the muddy waters Little Walter blew his harp and stole their daughters Chester Burnett howlin’ at the moon while Willie Dixon wrote the tune We're just another generation trying to walk in their big shoes The blues will rock you, blues will roll The blues got rhythm and a ton of soul The blues sticks with you win or lose So we can’t help trying on these shoes Bo Diddley, Elmore, Blues Boy King T-Bone, Buddy, Etta shakin’ her thing John Lee, Alberta Adams, Johnnie Basset, too (the Detroit Crew) We're just another generation trying to walk in their big shoes The blues will rock you, blues will roll The blues got rhythm and a ton of soul The blues sticks with you win or lose So we can’t help trying on these shoes We're just another generation trying to walk in their big shoes. © 3/15/2010 by Bob Young

Delta Twins plays fun, engaging Classic Rock, Motown/Soul, and Blues music... beyond the same old cover band choices. And Delta Twins has a fascinating way of making these classics truly their own.

Delta Twins also crafts award-winning original songs with passion, humor, groove, and lyrics that blow your mind and expand your heart. And they weave it into their sets strategically for a roller coaster ride of emotion that you'll want to experience time and time again.

Delta Twins has captivated crowds along the Detroit River, amphitheaters in Milford and Farmington Hills, and packed clubs from Saginaw to Monroe, from St. Clair Shores and Lake Orion to Ann Arbor, Jackson, and Lansing.

Delta Twins features the powerful vocals of Bob Young (plus his keys and harmonica), the tasteful tones and scorching fire of guitarist Terry Birkett, and the rock-solid rhythm section of Tom Kozanecki (bass) and Doug Austin (drums).

Delta Twins understands some venues want an engaging original act, others need a background blend of mostly covers, and other rooms just care that their crowd can dance the night away. Delta Twins arranges their set lists and volume to best suit each environment.

And you'll find they are truly nice, professional guys... as well as intelligent and thoughtful about what they do and why they do it. It's a unique combination of skill, substance, and spirit.

Deep Blues/Rock for the Soul... Delta Twins.

PRESS:

“A spiritually blues-driven experience…that’s the journey the Delta Twins take you on the moment they hit the stage”
- Jill Jack, Singer/Songwriter/Detroit Music Award winner

“Delta Twins infuse the blues with their own unique style of soulful songwriting voodoo…The original tunes tend toward a slick blues sound right in line with the band’s Midwestern roots. The covers present on the album show the band’s dedication to blues and classic rock… [they] make good on their promise of delivering American blues and rock in an entertaining manner.”
- Bryan Rodgers, Album Review

"The Seasons & The Scars… kudos to the people behind the desk because it sounds great…[and] the songs are strong."
- Brett Callwood, MetroTimes (Nov 05, 2013)

"You guys are too good to be playing at a place like this!"
- Customer at anonymous venue

“The Delta Twins ROCKED Arts, Beats & Eats. The crowd was having fun with the Blues!”
- Roger Burghdoff, Arts Beats & Eats stage manager

"The Delta Twins put on a high energy show that left the audience wanting more. I really enjoyed their take on Blues, Americana and Classic Rock."
- Bill Keith, Trinity House Theatre

"This acts as a reminder to the rest of the world about the powerful music force that Detroit was and continues to be.”
- Heath Andrews, Album Review

“The frontman, Bob Young, voices a distinctive american-modern, rhythmic-soul far from resembling folk. Lead guitar, Tom Kozanecki, plays with grace, inviting listeners to focus their attention. As their gregarious personalities welcome your participation, they also make you laugh between songs.”
- Jenna Ounanian, The Examiner

“The Delta Twins may just have what you’re looking for. It’s difficult to find music like this in all the super saturate pop-madness. The lyrics are considerate of the human condition in ways consistent with blues and folk traditions. These are songs for the working class, not only to inspire but to empower and protect.”
- Julian Gorman, Album Review

“That was great… but it was deep, too…I didn’t know whether to slit my wrists or change my ways…”
- Anonymous @ The Pike Room, fan comment

“I really enjoyed listening to you folks last night. I enjoy your animation and energy when you sing. Detroit sure has a lot of great talent.”
- Laurie Lacross-Wright, Rusty Wright Band (Blues Challenge Winners)
