Gretsch Drums has partnered with legendary funk stylist Stanton Moore to present a clinic tour at select Gretsch dealer locations across the USA. Stanton is best known as a founding member and drummer of the New Orleans-based funk band Galactic. Clinics will focus on the April release of Moore's new multimedia project, "Groove Alchemy" featuring an instructional book, DVD (Hudson Music) and a 12-track cd (Telarc). All three facets of the project explore the roots of funk drumming by examining the work of pioneers like Jabo Starks, Clyde Stubblefield, and Zigaboo Modeliste — each of whom made their mark as the engines driving James Brown's and the Meters' legendary rhythm sections and in turn tracing their influences back to the rhythms coming out of New Orleans in the earlier part of the 20th century. Audience participation is encouraged during the clinics. As Moore demonstrates technique, he often invites an audience member to join along with him at a second drum set, providing guests with an interactive, hands on experience. Clinics also feature a Q&A session between Stanton and Gretsch product manager, John Palmer, and Gretsch snare drum giveaway at each event. 3/9 6:00 PM Memphis Drum — Memphis, TN
