About the Artist
Maureen Brown Gratton - Starting her career as a professional drummer/singer/percussionist and bandleader, she made Canadian history as the first drummer in the country to be recognized as Blues Drummer of the Year, the first 3 years awarded, when she was the only woman nominated in the category. Moe's Art is her art adventure where she is an acclaimed pet portrait artist and a multi-media artist creating art on canvas, clothing, drum heads and more. Ringo Starr is just one of the many people who own a piece of Moe's Art.

Viola Smith: 1912-2020
As one of the first professional female drummers in history, she played in big bands, small groups, symphonic settings, in vaudeville and in two Hollywood films, on radio and the Broadway stage, and on the Ed Sullivan television program five times. Having studied at Julliard and with legendary the Billy Gladstone, and citing Louie Bellson as a major inspiration, she moved effortlessly from co-leading an all-female orchestra called the Coquettes, to a featured soloist with the popular, all-girl ensemble, Phil Spitalny's Hour of Charm Orchestra.
