Jonathan "Sugerfoot" Moffett
Coming from humble beginnings in the birthplace of funk, New Orleans, LA, Jonathan Moffett has kept the world dancing with solid grooves aplenty. At age 12, musicians gave him the nickname "Sugarfoot" because of his fast, and articulate bass drum work, playing 16th and even 32nd note figures within his funky, relentless grooves. From 70's recordings, such as the Mardis Gras standard "Second Line" or "Don't Stop the Music" (by R&B artist YARBROUGH and PEOPLES), to the polished 80's recordings he did with Madonna (Open Your Heart, Live To Tell, Like A Prayer, etc.), Elton John (Sacrifice), George Michael (with Elton John in the "Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me" video among other projects) and others - Sugarfoot has a way with a beat that attracts attention. His extensive work with the Jacksons (including solo work with Michael and Janet) kept arenas of fans bopping and disco dance floors hopping. Always out to share his talent for the groove, Jonathan Moffet is happy to see songwriters using his beats and says, "music is my given gift from God! My gift to you is music! Pass it on..."
