This past weekend Galactic’s Stanton Moore busied himself on the afternoon before his group’s performances by hosting a pair of drum clinics. Later this month there will be more of the same with a five date tour that also will tie in to Moore’s Groove Alchemy, a CD, DVD and instructional book collection that explores the roots of funk drumming by examining the work of pioneers such as Jabo Starks, Clyde Stubblefield and Zigaboo Modeliste. Following a March 6 clinic in San Mateo, CA on the day of a Galactic gig, the Groove Alchemy Drum Clinic Tour kicks off on Tuesday March 9 at the Memphis Drum Shop in Memphis, TN.
