Australia knew that it cherished the Delltones in 1958, when the 4 younger lifesavers,
Noel Weiderberg, Brian Perkins, Warren Lucas and Ian ‘Peewee’ Wilson, appeared gawky, gangly and hopeful on the Bronte Surf Membership, then in Australian stadium ‘Huge Reveals’ with mentor Johnny O’Keefe, on pioneering radio present Rockville Junction and tv exhibits Six O’Clock Rock and Bandstand, and at last on report with their debut prime twenty hit, the Crows’ doo wop customary Gee.


The Delltones have been a part of a burgeoning rock ‘n’ roll surroundings which largely invented itself; a part of a group which drew guitar patterns on Fantales bins
in darkened cinemas, ran sprawling suburban dances with pug nosed boxers as bouncers, blew worldwide touring acts off stage with uncooked, blustery power, and gleefully upset the social order of a younger and conservative nation.


Because the sixties, the Delltones have bee entertaining Australian audiences. Ian ‘Peewee’ Wilson is the one present member from the unique line-up. Within the mid-1980s he reworked the group from a vocal quartet, to a five-piece vocal band. This together with different stylistic modifications led to the band’s resurgence and the chart topping, rock ‘n roll revival album, Bop Til Ya Drop. The band stays as one of the constant dwell entertainers in Australia, with arguably the longest performing and recording historical past for a vocal concord band with an unique member.


The phrase “Carry on raging – to cease the ageing” was adopted by Peewee within the 1980s. True to the spirit of that slogan The Delltones proceed to report and carry out.
