In 2007 bassist Franher Joseph joined Delta Moon and was followed in 2015 by drummer Vic Stafford (Blueground Undergrass, Donna the Buffalo, Toubab Krewe) to complete the current line-up. The band’s constant recording and touring continues into 2015 with tours scheduled for the United States, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Austria, Poland and more. Delta Moon’s music has been featured in television shows on Showtime, Lifetime, the Food Network & more.
