Students at Stanton Moore’s Third Annual Spirit of New Orleans (SONO) Drum Camp will enjoy the once-in-a-lifetime chance to sit in and jam with Grammy Award-winning essential funk band, Galactic. Hosted December 11–13, 2015 at Parlor Studios located at 605 Ninth St, New Orleans, LA, the exclusive three-day music camp celebrates the legacy and rich musical tradition that is uniquely New Orleans’. On the last day of camp, students will have the opportunity to sit in and play with all the members of Galactic at the finale concert at the Contemporary Arts Center.
From Mardi Gras Indian and second line drumming to the evolution of jazz and funk, students will enjoy three days of hands-on drumming, special guests including legendary New Orleans drummers Johnny Vidacovich and “King of Treme” Shannon Powell, as well as private lessons, live performances, and much more.
The Spirit of New Orleans Drum Camp will offer a limited number of students the chance to play with and learn from superstar drummer Stanton Moore in an ultra-intensive classroom setting. Each student will play on an individual practice drumkit allowing for an intense, educational experience that guarantees results.
