“It was a religious experience seeing Russell (Batiste) for the first time.”
Stanton Moore is proudly carrying the flag of New Orleans tradition in the world of music and drumming so it can be passed down to the next generation. The founding member of Galactic and his Stanton Moore Trio, Stanton brings that New Orleans sauce into full force oozing with panache and funky attitude behind the kit. He is an absolute treasure to music. Besides his own projects, Stanton’s list of appearances as a sideman is too long to list. Just look it up though and be astounded by it.
Besides his love for performance and music, he is also an enthusiastic teacher. He has recently launched his brand new Stanton Moore Drum Academy and has been using his studio to stream masterclasses and film lessons/courses to educate his students, with an emphasis on groove. He is also highly involved with famed nightclub Tipitina’s which has a very special place in Stanton’s heart. Overall, Stanton is bringing the New Orleans sound to the next generation and I think it is important that we understand a bit more about where he comes from and his expression within music.
