    Stanley Randolph

    Stanley Randolph is the drummer for Stevie Wonder, NKOTB, Christina Aguilera, The Jacksons, TLC, M-Ten and New Genesis, to name just a few. Is there an Artist Stanley hasn’t played for? You don’t have to listen to Stanley Randolph play for very long before you lose your mind. Stanley’s lessons on 180 are so rich in groove that it’s hard to believe only one person is behind the drums. His latin sensibility and years experience in the pocket leads to a great sound. Pair that sound with his ability to move around the kit at lightening speeds (or greasy slow) and you have a drummer in his own league. Folks, Stanley Randolph.

    When you're playing drums, it's just gotta feel good. If you can't make the groove feel good and lead people to dance, you're not making music.
