Put a little DeLay in your day!

Without music life would be a mistake.

- Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche

musicians for hire

I am the drummer and back up singer in a local Dallas cover band called

Sparky and the Blue Wonders

There are 4 of us in the band, and our lead singer, Cathy Smith, has a beautiful voice with an amazing range!

We’ve been playing together for over 6 years, and we perform rock, country, folk, alternative, oldies, and even a few jazz tunes. We like to be eclectic so that we can perform in a variety of venues.

We’ve performed at weddings, banquets, parties, coffee houses, and even played at Zoobilee, the big annual shindig at the Dallas Zoo!

Here’s a short list of some of the songs we perform. Stay tuned while we get this Web page up to speed and offer photos and audio clips!
