Del Bromham goes back to his roots with the Blues Devils at the Limelight Theatre
Del was born in West London - East Acton to be precise - and made his first public performance when he was 13 years old. This happened almost by accident due to one of the guitarists in his brother Allan's group, called The Traders, leaving unexpectedly a week or so prior to a gig.
He ended up staying with the band for a further three years, leaving only when his own band, which had formed at school when he was fifteen years old, started to take off and found it difficult to continue with The Traders. The band he formed was called Stray and that has virtually been his life's work ever since.
It wasn't until 2004 that Del recorded his first solo album, The Devil's Highway which, unusually for Del, was a more blues-based album with a combination of old songs which he remembered from his childhood and some self-penned songs in the style of the old blues masters. This coincided with the time that Del was asked to accompany and tour with guitarist Leslie West on his "Blues To Die For" tour. This was the first time that Del had played a completely solo acoustic set with no backing whatsoever. From this point Del decided to do more acoustic shows and then later formed a side project from Stray, known as Del Bromham's Blues Devils.
You could argue that it is with the Blues Devils where Del’s blues roots truly come to the fore, with storming blues guitar and Johnny Winter influenced slide.
