Artist Of The Day: Galactic

posted by Shane German on 11/20/2019

Drawing upon the vibrant funk, R&B, and jazz traditions of their native New Orleans, Galactic have built a loyal following with their own brand of jam-based grooves.

With inspiration from legends like the Meters and the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Galactic is always interested in cross pollinating their sound and the band continues to evolve by incorporating Hip Hop, Electronic, Jazz, Blues and World Music into their recordings and live shows.

Since they formed in 1994, they have released over ten studio albums and have played with a variety of artists such as Mavis Staples, Macy Gray, The Roots, BB King, Trombone Shorty and The Allman Brothers Band.

Their latest effort is the 2019 album Already Ready Already.  The band just announced a 25th Anniversary Tour that will feature a rotating roster of guest artists like Southern Avenue, Jackie Greene, and Anders Osbourne.
