Delta Moon

Delta Moon - Delta Moon Live - 2003 - Delta Moon
Delta Moon beat over 50 competitors to win the International Blues Challenge in Memphis in January 2003, and in June, the same year they released this great live album recorded at Tree Sound Studios in Atlanta. The abum features the Southern blues swamp sound at it's best. Great vocals from Gina Leigh and brilliant guitar work from Tom Gray and Mark Johnson add to the great sound of this album, and the bass and drums by Jon Schwenke and Johnny McKnight respectively, really deliver some knockout punches. Delta Moon have been winners of the Best Overall Music Act in Atlanta by Creative Loafing Readers, and deservedly so. The band have toured N.America and Europe but could still do with more exposure. In 2004 Gina Leigh left the band, and was replaced by Kristin Markiton as Delta Moon's female vocalist. Check out their 2004 album, "Goin' Down South," and there's info on their great debut album, "Delta Moon" @ DELTAMOON

Delta Moon -- winner of the Blues Foundation's International Blues Challenge held in Memphis, February 1, 2003 -- formed in the late 1990s when Gina Leigh, Mark Johnson, and Tom Gray all lived within a few blocks of each other in Atlanta's Inman Park neighborhood. The three got together regularly in Mark's livingroom to work up arrangements of classic blues and original songs for two slide guitars and voices. Soon, joined by a rotating cast of percussionists, drummers, and bassists, the band was playing in rib joints, nightclubs, and festivals around Atlanta and neighboring cities. Following the March 2002 release of their debut CD, imaginatively entitled "Delta Moon," the band started ranging farther from home, taking their energetic stage show across the US, Canada and Europe. As one audience member said, "Thanks for inviting us to your party!" © 1999 - 2008 Kweevak.com
