Carrius Moore

Born in the small town of Marianna Florida,
Carrius Moore came from a very large family
of musicians where he quickly found a love for drums.
From the age of 8 he traveled and played in several churches
with his grandfather where he developed his ability not only
as a drummer but as a musician. Through
middle school and high school he was recognized as a standout
musician where he was able to play behind ministers
and multi award winning artists such as James Kelly,
Jevon Goode and Bob Snyder among others.
Towards the end of his high school career he received the privilege of opening up for Tye
Tribbett along with Destiny Church in the Civic Center of Dothan Alabama. Due to the great performance
given by him and the other respective members of the church band, this lead to more performances
such as being a member of the house band for guest artist Kim Burrell. Upon graduation he received a
full jazz scholarship to Troy University making him the only person in the history of his high school to
audition for All State Jazz Band as well as receive a full scholarship in Jazz to a major university. Once
enrolled at Troy he became the only freshman to be put in the top Jazz Ensemble, and Chamber
Ensemble as well as record for jazz artist Jilla Webb on her debut album “That Old Black Magic”. In his
second year he performed and gigged with Jazz Hall of Fame artist Jim Bell and was featured in some
shows such as Sounds of the Seasons. With these performances he has recently performed at the
American Bandmasters Association where the Jazz Ensemble was a featured band. He has also toured
with the American Popular Music Ensemble headed by DCI legend Eric Ward and DCI Hall of Fame and
ABA Hall of Fame inductee Robert W. Smith. His most recent performance and albums would include
musical theatre tours at the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival in Roanoke, Virginia for
“Band Geeks” and “Single Girls Guide” directed by Gordon Greenberg and music and lyrics written by
award winning Tommy Newman.
