Designed for the street. We know outdoor music is king in the waning time of the pandemic, as the vaccines free us from a year of silence. So, we are quite sure you want a band designed for the outdoors. Building on the ancient New Orleans traditions, but re-imagined for Calgary, there is nothing like this in the world.
Delirium was formed in 2012. Inspired by the evolving “riot jazz” brass bands (e.g. The Soul Rebels, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band, The Youngblood Brass Band ) the Calgary based musicians wanted to leave most of the jazz influence behind and push the genre further into ska, punk and party rock, focusing on high energy music like No Doubt and The Clash and strong female vocals. Until 2017 the band was headlined by Margo Laing, with increasing emotional appeal through her expressive songwriting, voice, and stage presence, the album "House of the Rising Sun" highlights this era. In 2018 the band reformed for the Banff wedding season with more drums, more horns, and two vocalists: Kevin Waites, and Margo’s kid Jace. New works include "Stroke Therapy", a healing jam song, and covers of Taylor Swift, the Cat Empire, and Queen.
The 2021 waning pandemic version has more percussion, more vocalists, and a level of precision that will impress.
With the brass and percussion instrumentation, and no guitars or keyboards, these covers are completely different yet intimately familiar, with a street-style dance vibe. Songs on Spotify or Apple Music. The new 2021 videos on Youtube show the current vocal and percussion focus, recorded at Studio D and shot at ContainR.
