Hear the reverb. Feel the love!
The Delineators was formed sometime during the year of 2004 with the three founding members being Will Shapiro on drums and vocals,
Fia Shafone on bass and vocals, and Gando Ganzbero on guitar and vocals. All three members have an extensive musical history prior
to the Delineators and it would be tedious to list all the previous bands, experiments and mistakes. Membership has stayed steady to the present day
as much as we care to admit. What more do you need if you have reverb and a totally bitchin guitar? The musical style has remained consistent also throughout
the years, focusing mainly on surf instrumentals and surf inspired songs with vocals. To be more precise: About two thirds of the
songs are instrumental surf songs, with the other third being vocal oriented songs that utilize the surf style as much as possible.
The bands repertoire includes over forty songs, or three fifty minute sets. A good majority of these songs are cover songs from such
classic surf bands as The Ventures, The Surfaris, Dick Dale and others. But some of the cover songs are of obscure origin for those
who prefer to hear something unexpected. The band has played mostly in the Rogue Valley but has also played occasionally as far
south as Sacramento and Reno, Nevada. The Delineators plan on expanding their choice and range of venues in the future in the hopes of
spreading the gospel of reverb.
Aside from finally finding the motiviation to wake up and start practicing again, The Delineators are currently working on a concept album about nothing.
They have not yet begun recording any songs, and probably
won't in the foreseeable future because they want to fully explore all the conceptual realities behind the subject matter. They plan on calling the album
Special Collector's Edition/Discounted Price. It is assumed that
the album will first be released on eight track tape. After the album is released they plan on
touring extensively in the Rogue Valley, or perhaps only in their own little part of it.
In other news, (seriously-this piece of news is not a joke) Fia Shafone (the bassist for the Delineators) has had some nerve problems in her hands, and although
the problem temporary, it is long term enough that the Delineators have had to cancell any headline or opening shows. Fortunately the recovery is moving
along so the Delineators will be able to play a short set August 5th opening for
Shark in the Water and Step it up and Go
