Over the course of his 20-year career, drummer Stanton Moore has become known as one of the premier funk musicians of his generation. The explosive, driving force behind Galactics stadium-sized blend of New Orleans funk, jazz, hip-hop and electronic dance music, Moore is the primary figure bringing the second line drumming tradition to modern pop music, collaborating with Charlie Hunter, Maceo Parker, Tom Morello, Joe Jackson and Robert Walter as well as his own Stanton Moore Trio.
With a degree in music and business from Loyola University, Moore stays involved in music education by consistently teaching clinics, master classes, and private lessons all over the world. He has been a contributing writer for Drum!, Modern Drummer and DownBeat magazines and has been featured the covers of over a dozen drum publications worldwide. He received a Grammy in 2007 for his contribution to Irma Thomas œAfter The Rain.
When not touring, the Louisiana native serves on the board of directors for Roots of Music, a free music education and academic mentoring program, manages his own signature line of cymbals, sticks, snares, and hosts his annual œSpirit of New Orleans Drum Clinic.
