Bob with Stanton Moore, backstage at the 9:30 Club in Washington, DC

Stanton Moore is the drummer for the New Orleans funk band Galactic, a job he's held for a couple of decades now.  Stanton has made a life-long study of the music of his hometown and he's especially proud to join the long line of notable drummers from New Orleans. Stanton Moore is a musician, but he's also a scholar of music, a teacher, an entrepreneur and the bandleader for several groups of various sizes around town. We first visited with him during the 2010 Jazz Fest around his kitchen table. This time around, Stanton joins Bob Edwards backstage at the 9:30 Club in Washington, DC. Galactic's latest studio release is called Into the Deep. Erica Falls was the band's guest vocalist on tour when we recorded them in March.
