It has been a long, LONG journey for The Delta 72 since their first rumblings in 1994. Throughout their whole journey and member changes, The Delta 72 has always remained true to their ideals and to bring a live rock and roll band.

The Delta 72 came together back in 1994 as a three-piece, with a bass player being added some months later. After a drummer switch-a-roo, their first album line-up was solidified. They were Gregg Foreman on guitar, harp and vocals, Jason Kourkounis (former Mule skins-smith) on drums, Kim Thompson on bass and vocals, and Sarah Stolfa on Farfisa organ.

Kim left in 1996, and Bruce Reckahn came in on bass like a wrecking ball to the low end! His voice is not quite as high as Kim's, but he wears his bass higher to compensate. Sarah Stolfa left in 1998 and Mark Boyce came into the fold. He was in the Goats with Bruce and played in Boss Hog as well. Mark plays not only organ, but is an accomplished piano player and all around keys specialist. Now the scene was set to unleash their third long player unto the masses, The Delta 72 000!
