IBC Memphis 2017- Here we come! 

My music duo partner, Smilin' Jack Campbell and myself are headed off to the 2016 IBC in Memphis TN this winter. We won the solo/duo category at the Natchel Blues Network yesterday at their sanctioned IBC competition in Hampton VA along with our good friends and fellow bluesmates The Billy Joe Daniels Trio, winners of the band category.

We're all pretty excited about it as you can imagine! Great big shout out and humble thank you's to event coordinator Bobby Blackhat Walters, NBN Blues Society, judges, fans and supporters of The Campbell Stevens Project!  

Campbell Stevens Project 

I'm delighted to announce that local Hampton Roads harmonica player, Jack Campbell, and myself have started a duo to bring live performances in the blues and beyond in the local Hampton Roads 757 music venues. We call it The Campbell Stevens Project.

Our debut gig will be at one of my favorite venues Bill & Debbie Bickel's Froggy's Cantina. Located right on Shore Dr. just a stone's throw west of the Lesner Bridge. This is a great weekend hotspot for live music, full bar, off street parking and some of the best food being served in Virginia Beach!

Come out and join Jack and myself on Sunday Mar 20 ... 4-7pm and support our first gig... The Campbell Stevens Project! Be sure to visit Jack's new website:

Busy summer with my band 

Check out my band webpage The Delta Daggers... staying pretty busy with the boys! Come check out our shows! We're playing the blues all over the Hampton Roads area! Our newest band member singer/songwriter guitar player from Austin Texas Boy Wells is a must see! 

Bluesy summer begins! 

Summer is nearly upon us and my band, Cole Stevens and The Delta Daggers is staying very busy in local Hampton Roads blues venues and clubs! It seems we are gaining blues fan support every week in Virginia Beach, Hampton, Williamsburg Yorktown just to name a few towns that come to mind. We're working on wiggling our way into the local and regional blues festivals in Virginia, so far we are quietly gaining steam playing local venues featuring our kind of blues music.

One of the things I'm delighted about is I'm beginning to feel a renewed wave of original songs emerging lately. The band is incorporating them in our current shows and hopefully soon we'll be able to record them. For now, arrangements and ideas for my new songs are constantly evolving and maturing in a practical process into their slicker presentations. It's a process that I believe helps the songs along and makes them ready for future recordings. Since the beginning of this year I have been writing more and more, so I'm anxious to push out a train load full of new songs this year.

I would like to reach out to our Delta Dagger fans and first thank you for all the wonderful and encouraging support lately! We also want to remind you that if you hear or know of any blues clubs or venues, wine festivals or blues or jazz festivals in Virginia that you feel we should be playing at, please contact us so we can follow up. We're looking to branch out beyond the Hampton Roads area and play out spreading the blues gospel according to us in Richmond, Charlottesville areas and beyond. Private parties, fish fry & BBQ and beer festivals is what we're all about. Intimate house concerts and house rent parties is one our specialties!

One of the great things about my band, we really got the greasy delta and New Orleans grooves down. We even weave Chicago style blues, West Coast Swing and the raw Mississippi Hills into our music. We not only are playing in a full electric contemporary blues format, we are now doling out bigger doses of acoustic country blues style music using upright acoustic bass and shiny metal body National resonator guitars! Yeah I'm even throwing in a bit of cigar box guitar here and there. You can go to the band website an see video examples of each. So there's a lot more diversity my band is presenting itself with in new and unique ways! Please check us out at 
deltadaggers.com soon!
