About Delta Shakedown

Delta Shakedown plays classic and contemporary blues from influences across the genre..

Members


George Corrie, Tommy Henningsen, Henrik Torp & Kim Korgaard


Delta Shakedown was formed in August 2013, when George Corrie (UK), looking for soul mates to form a contemporary rock / blues band, teamed up with guitarist Tommy Henningsen (DK). Performing just a few shows, it was soon clear that a rhythm section was needed to complete the band. Bass player Dionisis Frantzis (GR) and drummer Kim Korgaard (DK) soon filled the empty spaces and the band would now be ready to take on the first shows as a quartet.

Early 2014, Dionisis Frantzis unfortunately had to leave the country for personal reasons and the band was now without a bass player. Considering whether to disband or not, the remaining members continued writing songs and not long after a new bass player, Henrik Torp, joined in. Now back in full setup, the band quickly got to work preparing for the upcoming shows.

About Plug 'n' Play

Plug 'n' Play is run by local people, for local people.

About ten years ago, Phil Caton recognised that there was a need for a venue in Penrith where musicians and singers could perform live in front of an audience. Over the years, the format changed slightly and we started to invite professional artists to headline the night, with a Plug 'N' Play slot at the start of the evening. We have seen some amazing performances from international stars like Tommy EmmanuelJohn RenbourneKieran HalpinBob BrozmanMartin StephensonKristina Olsen and the late Isaac Guillory.

Many local people have made their stage debut here and several have formed bands with other performers they have met at the sessions. We have heard every genre of music played at Plug 'N' Play – rockbluesfolkjazzheavy metaljug band, appalachian – and we’ve even had poetry recitations.

If you have any names of performers you would like to put forward for future sessions, please speak to any of the team or post it to the website / facebook group and we’ll consider it when we meet to discuss the programme.

Thanks to Penrith Players for their continued support in helping us to keep Plug 'N' Play afloat.  They also supply the bar staff, who all work voluntarily, which is much appreciated.
