Album Notes
Featuring an alchemy of gritty guitars, gospel organ, powerful drums, and creative songwriting, the Mike Delledera Band can best be described as an explosive fusion of 21st century-americana-blues-jazz-funk-driven-rock-n-roll.

WakeUpSideDowntown is an album written by guitarist/songwriter Mike Delledera, backed by some of New York City’s most talented jazz and rock musicians. Song after song, jam after jam, Mike’s diverse compositions invite the listener to experience the band’s festive-urban-sonic-engine.

Mike Delledera is a native of Syracuse, NY and currently lives in Brooklyn. He studied jazz/classical guitar and jazz arranging at Ithaca College, and is a graduate of SUNY Oneonta with a BA in Music Industry. Upon moving to NYC, Mike studied rock guitar and composition with Carlos Alomar (guitarist/collaborator with John Lennon, David Bowie, and Iggy Pop). Mike has shared the stage with platinum selling band Rusted Root as well as fellow jammers Tea Leaf Green, Ra Ra Riot, DJ Logic, and many more amazing musicians throughout his career.

Awesome Jam Music
Great Jam music from this upcoming artist. The songs are fun and bluesy, a great combination that any fan of Jam music will absolutely love. Highly recommend for fans of Phish and Tom Petty.

Sam Ashmore

Mike Delledera does it again with a great/groovy album composed of spot-on vocals, bluesy guitar riffs and an overall fun vibe. A great achievement from this band, definitely check out this album!


Americana pop at its finest
Infused with crunchy guitars, punchy drum beats, clever lyrics, and bluesy organ sounds, "Wakeupsidedowntown" by Mike Delledera also offers a classic Americana sound and is an album not to be missed. What stands out is the energy and authenticity that the band creates in these nine songs. A must have if you like Tom Petty and Phish!

John Semones

Great Jam Band!
Mike is an amazing artist with smooth vocals, and the band that stands at his side offer amazing instrumentals. Their a great NYC jam band that is bringing back the genre that our parents grew up with and loved!
