Derek Irving and His Combo
Derek grew up in Oakland and Sonoma County. While Sonoma County is not known as a blues hub like Oakland, Derek got his musical start in bars around Sonoma County. By the age of 20, Derek joined Mitch Woods and His Rocket 88's and toured the globe as well as recording on Mitch's Shakin' The Shake record released on Blind Pig Records. By the mid 90's Derek left Mitch Woods to form his own band The Aces, who played locally for 11 years. In 2009 Derek got The Aces a record deal with El Toro Records out of Barcelaona Spain. Derek not only front's his own band, but has been played guitar for local harmonica players as well as backing Doyle Bramhall II, Earl King and Johnny Adams on guitar. While deeply rooted and inspired by blues musicians of the 1950's and 1960's Derek use's his inspiration to play slashing greasy guitar and is a player definitely from the "less is more" school. Delivering traditional guitar lines with authenticity and conviction.
