Wanna see how fast an ordinary night out at a local bar can turn into an exotic neo-hippie experience? All it takes is a few good shots and some quality time with Long Beach eclectomaniacs Delta Nove. Blending the percussive powers of roots reggae, rock, world and funk, the well-traveled five-piece never stop spreading their sound across counties, communities and clubs throughout the country, often playing with the likes of the Black Crows, Ozomatli and scores of others. Part of their legacy is the bands live jam sessions known as the Collab Lab, where they ask a band or two to join them on stage and hash out some improv jams and one-of-a-kind moments. Delta Nove continues that tradition this month at Alexs Bar every Wednesday with two sets of live music featuring a new set of guest musicians every week.
