An exciting melodic blend of bluesy folk and pop beat music with strong soulful harmonies and beautiful instrumental arrangements.
The Del Zorros' Sparkling New CD, "WILMINGTON", Takes You Halfway To Heaven…
Monty and Stede have done it again! Just when we really needed to hear something fresh and uplifting, The Del Zorro twins welcome us to enjoy their extraordinary new CD, "Wilmington". They have also given their adopted hometown of Wilmington, North Carolina, an exciting new sound and a multitude of terrific theme songs--"Halfway To Heaven" is perfect for Wilmington!
I don't know how these two seasoned artists got a sound so young and effervescent, or how these two musicians played all the guitars and drums and instruments in their enchanting symphonic band at the same time (or how they got the tympani into Stede's bedroom, where they recorded this adventuresome CD) but I do believe that "Wilmington" is the positively irresistible soundtrack that we've been waiting for, and I trust that, after folks have listened to "Wilmington" over and over again, they will be looking forward to hearing The Del Zorros perform their magical blend of bluesy folk and pop beat music everywhere from Wilmington's Thalian Hall to Carnegie Hall and beyond!

A song can magically transport us instantly to another place.
Remember the songs that made you want to visit those places?
(Gary U.S. Bond's "New Orleans," Jan & Dean's "Surf City," Gerry & The Pacemakers' "Ferry Cross The Mersey," The Beatles' "Penny Lane," and Scott McKenzie's "San Francisco" all come to mind).
The Del Zorro's "Wilmington" is an irresistible album of dreamy songs that will take you away on a magic carpet ride around Monty & Stede's adopted hometown of Wilmington, North Carolina.
This collection of 12 audio postcard love letters will make you want to board the first steamboat, surfboard, or ferry and join the musical love-in that The Del Zorros are celebrating in "Wilmington!"
