About the Artist
Delta Moon 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 settled on a permanent rhythm section - The Quarter Ton of Fun: Johnny McKnight and Jon Schwenke - and started ranging farther from home, energizing crowds with their powerful and imaginative stage show. As one audience member said, "Thanks for inviting us to your party!"
