On Sunday June 22, 2014 Victor Delgado and The Fabulous Diamondbacks rocked the Main Street Restaurant in Yorba Linda, Calif. From approximately 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. As Delgado put it this was a charity event—“a concert for a great friend in need—(musician) Walter Trout.”

As your rather reclusive writer took his seat with his femme fatale photog Mary Sparks, guest musician Andrew Bloom (of “The Voice”). Bloom performed several acoustic covers of pop and rock tunes including The Beatles’ ”Hey Jude”, Led Zeppelin’s “Ramble On” and The Black Crowes’ “She Talks To Angels”.

He even through in a touch of Jimi Hendrix’ “Purple Haze” as well as Ray Charles’ “Georgia” and Al Green’s “Let’s Stay Together” before turning the stage over to the main act of the afternoon Victor Delgado and The Fabulous Diamondbacks. The band’s current roster includes Victor Delgado (bass and backing vocals), Mark Sells (guitar), Eddie Taska (guitar), Ray “Hooch” Delgado (drums) and Ronnie “Bones” Baker (lead vocals) as server Lissa and crew were already providing superb service to a crowded house.

But, as regular readers know, yours truly rarely ventures to venues such as this. But when he does he prefers to enjoy himself. So don’t expect an in-depth analysis or a perfect playlist. It’s all about the overall experience and not a detailed documentation. Just be happy to hear highlights, mmmkay?

Highlights included a blasting cover of The Jimi Hendrix Experience’s “Voodoo Child (Slight Return)” from 1968, Rick Derringer’s 1970 composition "Rock and Roll, Hoochie Koo" and a bit o’ the blues with the version of T-Bone Walker’s “Stormy Monday” once made famous by B.B. King. The band ripped through their signature brand of blues power rock including some noteworthy instrumental work and a boisterous bit of Stevie Ray Vaughan’s “Pride and Joy.”

They pulled of their “power” performance with tuneful teamwork, a little humor and some guitar hero hijinks complete with audience participation, stage strolling and furniture hopping. Overall, it was a rockin’ Sunday afternoon of catchy, cool covers, hot food and strong drinks.

My name is Phoenix and . . . that’s the bottom line.
