Durham's Delta Rae to Play DNC

It's not just politicians speaking at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte this week. Organizers have lined up a range of musicians to help keep attendees entertained and fired up. Tonight's performers include the Foo Fighters, Mary J Blige, Earth, Wind and Fire and James Taylor. But Taylor isn't the only North Carolinian playing tonight. Durham-based Delta Rae has toured with many bands since releasing its debut album Carry the Fire earlier this year. But tonight, the band is opening for the ultimate headliner. Eric Hodge talks with the band about their upcoming performance.

The band Delta Rae is brothers Ian and Eric Holljes, their sister Brittany and friends Liz Hopkins, Mike McKee and Grant Emerson. The band says they're expecting tonight's performance at the Time Warner Arena to be something special. There's more of Eric's conversation with Delta Rae -- and an in-studio performance -- on Last Motel this Sunday at 6.
