         Hear that beat? Sounds familiar? YES! It's "Don't Stop the Music" by R&B artist YARBROUGH and PEOPLES and Jonathan "Sugarfoot" Moffett on drums! Released by Total Experience Records, This was the second commercially world release song (the first was " Second Line" which he recorded back in 1971 in New Orleans, La. with his band 'Stop Incorporated', still this day the 1 Mardi Gras season hit song and New Orleans anthem) Jonathan recorded and it became a 1 hit and R&B classic! Sampled by many different major rappers in the Rap and Hip Hop world. As the song says, "Don't Stop the Music" and "Don't Stop the Beat"!!!!! What about " I WANT MUSCLES" by DIANA ROSS? Or how-bout that opening drum fill and beat on "OPEN YOUR HEART" by MADONNA? And what of, "LIKE A PRAYER" by MADONNA? Even that slow pulsed-laid back beat on "LIVE TO TELL" by the ever reinventive MADONNA? Or the slow mellow pulse on "SACRIFICE" by SIR ELTON JOHN? Drummer for many major recording artists live and on records. Professional for 28 years (since 1979).

         Born in New Orleans,Louisiana with a passion for music and graphic arts. First started playing at age 6 on his first snare drum(a Ludwig marching snare). Playing at school dances, parties and talent shows by age 8, night clubs by the age of 9, making his own money with his older brother's and their friend's band The Caveliers. "They would sneek me in the back doors because I was so underage {I don't know if they paid me right, but I sure had a lotta fun playing with the big guys - HOPE THEY DIDN'T RIP ME OFF!!!!!}".

         At the age of 12 became known as " S U G A R F O O T " because of the fast, articulate and pronounced bass drum work he had developed! Playing 16th and even 32nd note figures dynamically within the rhythms. This name stuck all around town. "People didn't even know my REAL name." Played with several various popular local bands around town and in the region for 15 years to local celebrity status. A tape of the last local band I played with, the "Money Band", made it's way out of town in the hands of the lead singer of that band he had been with. "He let Jermaine Jackson of the Jacksons hear the tape and Jermaine sent for me through him. In the second week of January of 1979, I drove out to Los Angeles,California and Hollywood to meet with Jermaine. By the end of February(1 1/2 months later), I joined, THE JACKSONS".

         From seeing him on the first tours with The Jacksons, other recording artist groups such as Patti Austin, Lionel Richie, Tina Marie, Cameo, Madonna, Elton John, and eventually George Michael would call upon his services to supply the heart, power, finess, feel, dynamics and articulation of their songs and grooves. Within the world renowned Jackson family alone, Jonathan has played for 4 major recording and touring artist-and intities in the world and in the history of music- The Jacksons/Michael Jackson/Janet Jackson/ and Jermaine Jackson. " Music Is My Given Gift from GOD! My Gift To You Is Music! I Pass It On . . . . so that it may be Passed On to your souls!!! If you experience what I'm translating, . . . . . then feel it, express to it, live it, let it move you physically and emotionally. " Then, pass it on! From the CREATOR - through me - to you, through you - to others!!! Share The Spirit! Spread The Love!!!!! "___
