Stanton Moore is without question one of the best drummers on the planet. In addition to playing with Galactic, his main band from his hometown of New Orleans, he's no stranger to playing solo gigs and teaming up with other like-minded musicians. For those that don't know about Stanton Moore and Galactic, they are about as funky and rockin' as a band can get. They've been one of the biggest draws in the jamband circuit for many years.
