Starting as a band in early 2007, The Delta Rockets have progressed quickly into a powerhouse musical ensemble capable of entertaining large crowds, small parties and events of nearly any size.
Their music style ranges from music you can dance to, including an entertaining mix of classic rock, old-time blues, Motown and even a sprinkle of country. The Delta Rockets were recently invited to participate and play a set at a benefit for Pepperbelly’s Comedy Club in Fairfield. Along with some other great local bands, the benefit took place at the beautiful Fairfield Center for Creative Arts on Texas Street.
The Delta Rockets return to the Dixon May Fair stage again this year from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. May 12, playing on the Leber Garden Stage, smack dab in the center of the May Fair. Bring the family and your friends out to listen to some great music that will get you moving!

The band draws from influential artists such as Eric Clapton, Joe Walsh, the Doobie Brothers, Tom Petty, the Beatles, Spirit, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Creedence Clearwater, Peter Frampton and others.
