Teisco Del Rey

July 8, 2016 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Teisco Del Rey
Hailing from California’s San Francisco Bay Area, Del Rey played sessions with San Jose-based group the Mallards before moving to Austin, TX, in the late ’80s.
Performing on a wide array of what he calls, “el cheapo guitars,” Del Rey (born Dan Forte) brought the sounds of surf music to the Lone Star state. His 1992 album, The Many Moods of Teisco Del Rey, included guest appearances by Charlie Musselwhite, David Grisman, Jimmy Vaughn, Steve Douglas, members of Laika & the Cosmonauts, and Mel Taylor of the Ventures. His second effort, Plays Music for Lovers, released four years later, was accented by contributions by slide guitarist Sonny Landreth and synthesizer player Tim Ware.
