Grammy award-winning drummer, author, and educator Stanton Moore (Galactic) debuts his SONO Las Vegas Drum Camp, April 11–13 at the Alexis Park Hotel and Spa. Produced by MUSO Entertainment, this exclusive three-day music camp celebrates the legacy and rich musical tradition that is unique to New Orleans.
From Mardi Gras Indian and second-line drumming to the evolution of jazz and funk, students will enjoy three days of hands-on drumming. Each camp package includes tickets for the April 11 and April 12 Galactic concerts at the newly opened Las Vegas Brooklyn Bowl.
The SONO Drum Camp will offer a limited number of students the chance to play with and learn from Stanton Moore in an ultra-intensive classroom setting. Each student plays on an individual practice drumkit, allowing for an intensive educational experience.
