Born and raised in New Orleans, Stanton Moore is a dedicated drummer and performer especially connected to the city, its culture and its collaborative spirit. As a founding member of the funk band Galactic, Moore's infectious style has allowed him to collaborate with Irma Thomas, Joss Stone, Tom Morello, George Porter Jr., Dr. Lonnie Smith and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band. Driven and inspired by the thriving music scene of his hometown which includes such greats as Professor Longhair, Doctor John and The Meters, Moore's name is now mentioned amongst these Big Easy mainstays. When not performing with his band Galactic, he plays straight ahead jazz with his trio, featuring David Torkanowsky on piano and James Singleton on bass. Join us tonight for Stanton's weekly jazz residency here at Snug.
