Meet Vic Stafford, the newest member of Delta Moon. As of February 2015 Vic has taken sole possession of the band’s drum throne.
Vic has been part of Delta Moon’s extended family for several years now, filling in with us from time to time at festivals and club shows. He has worked with Donna the Buffalo, Blueground Undergrass and Toubab Krewe. We are delighted to have Vic as a dedicated member of Delta Moon.
I asked Vic his favorite color and he said, “All of them.” His all-time favorite albums are Tom Waits’ Rain Dogs and Steely Dan’s Royal Scam. He keeps pygmy goats in his backyard.
We remain friends with our past drummers, although they are now in other projects: Darren Stanley, with us off and on for seven years, has been working lately with Col. Bruce Hampton. Marlon Patton, who recorded on Delta Moon’s last couple studio albums, is drumming with Larkin Poe. We’ve shared a lot of unforgettable experiences with Darren and Marlon, love them both as brothers and wish them nothing but the best.
