Leo Nocentelli

Known throughout the music industry as the “funkiest, fast-fingered” guitarist there is, a musician who can control your mind, body and soul with his experience, superior talent, musical mastery and inimitable style, he is LEO NOCENTELLI. Leo is the lead guitarist, composer, innovator & the musical originator of the syncopated funk-style that won international acclaim for him and the band known as the “Pioneers of Funk”, THE METERS, the 2001 Gramy Lifetime Achievement Award Winners. Leo has recorded with a list of Grammy Award Winners such as, Stevie Wonder, Bonnie Raitt, The Supremes, The Temptations, Paul McCartney, Dr John.

Stanton Moore

Born and raised in New Orleans (and living there still, when he’s not on the road), Stanton Moore is very much a product of geography, culture and creative networking. He grew up in the thriving music scene of his hometown that included Professor Longhair, Doctor John, the Meters and countless other Big Easy mainstays.

Moore has also been keeping busy with numerous side projects, including new albums with Galactic and Garage a Trois. He’s also working on his second book/DVD project, Groove Alchemy, an instructional package focusing on groove drumming (Groove Alchemy is the followup to a similar instructional package in 2005 that focused on New Orleans drumming styles).
