About john (J.D.) delves

neil young acoustic SHOW

The first song that J.D. Delves ever learned to play on guitar was the Neil Young classic Needle and the Damage Done. J.D. is a long-time Neil Young fan and enthusiast of Neil’s unique song writing and guitar style. He recreates the acoustic sound that is unique to Neil Young. The result is a memorable experience that resembles a Neil Young live acoustic show performing all of the great songs you want to hear from Neil’s catalogue such as Heart of Gold, Out on the Weekend, Cinnamon Girl, Down by the River, Alabama, Harvest Moon, My My Hey Hey, Powderfinger – the list goes on.

70’s & onwards solo SHOw

These days J.D. has been focusing on a more acoustic approach to his solo shows celebrating the music of artists such as Bruce Springsteen, Pink Floyd, Crowded House, John Cougar Mellencamp, Cat Stevens, Neil Young, Counting Crows and others. J.D. is not only big on having a good time whilst performing, but also having a great sound and as such, keeps his sound equipment right up-to-date using the latest Bose equipment which has a compact footprint and professional sound.
