Ricky Bailey & Delegation... delivering all that's great about British 70's, 80's & 90's Soulful Funk!
Delegation one of the foremost recording and touring soul funk bands of the 70's, 80's and 90's with a string of chart hits in the UK, all over Europe and the US.
The band that recorded "Where Is The Love" (We Used To Know) and featured on the then, leading music TV programme in the UK, "Top Of The Pops" which also arrived on UK screens on Thursday nights was the only TV place to be to catch the UK chart scene, in fact if you were going out you wouldn't go out until you had seen TOP!
Those were the days when soulful music lyrics touched your heart with meaningful, life experiences, when melody still played the lead and the bands were full of stylish and flamboyant individuals. Things have changed somewhat but not the passion at the core of Delegation Band who are still hitting the stage and cutting the tracks in the studio to create beautiful music that is appreciated by the more disconcerning soul funk fan.
The Delegation Band from 2012 still has Mr Ricky Bailey at its heart. Ricky's zest for life, love and music is unrelenting and passionate. Still working hard at his craft with his soulful, rich vocals and masterful leadership... Ricky is a man with a mission and as he comments, "There's unfinished business". Great news for Delegation fans all over the world!
So with a new ensemble of experienced musical talent, with a time honoured musical craft that comes with experience, we hit the road and the mixing desks as we are busy writing, recording and performing as DELGATION BAND.
Come and join us on our journey in life, love and music. Relive some of those heady days and allow your spirit to wander back to those special times we shared but more importantly... let’s get it on and make sweet music together from a new generation of the DELEGATION BAND.
Luv from Ricky and the boys and the girls involved with DB x
