Galactic

The New Orleans-based jazz-funk ensemble Galactic formed in 1994; originally an eight-piece, the group soon pared down to an instrumental sextet comprised of guitarist Jeff Raines, organist Rich Vogel, bassist Robert Mercurio, saxophonists Ben Ellman and Jason Mingledorff, and drummer Stanton Moore. Later adding Crescent City music scene vet Theryl deClouet on vocals, Galactic built a fervent local following on the strength of a relentless live schedule that included opening slots for group heroes including the Meters, Maceo Parker, and Medeski, Martin & Wood. In 1996 Galactic issued their debut LP, Coolin' Off; upon signing to major-label Capricorn, they re-released the album two years later, soon followed by the all-new Crazyhorse Mongoose. Since that time, they have released a handful of albums including Late for the Future in 2000, Ruckus in 2003, and From the Corner to the Block in 2007. The band itself released a pair of live albums of its sets at Jazz Fest in 2008 and 2009. In 2010 they issued their most ambitious project to date with Ya-Ka-May, a wholesale New Orleans recording featuring guest appearances by everyone from Irma Thomas and Big Chief Bo Dollis to the Rebirth Brass Band and Walter "Wolfman" Washington. Galactic decided to explore the various connections between New Orleans' annual Mardi Gras and the nearly nationwide Carnivale of Brazil. Carnivale Electricos did exactly that. Enlisting help from Cyril and Ivan Neville, rappers Mystikal and Mannie Fresh, Mardi Gras Indian Big Chief Juan Pardo, the KIPP Renaissance High School Marching Band, and Al "Carnival Time" Johnson. Galactic stretched itself toward Brazil's native samba by covering Carlinhos Brown's "Malagenha." They composed two tunes that bridged the continents: "Guero Bounce," fusing NOLA bounce and Brazilian rhythms, and "Julou," titled for the band's own outsider Mardis Gras parade. They also include the traditional Carnivale number "O Côco da Galinha" with the help of samba poet Moyseis Marques on vocals. Carnivale Electricos was issued on Mardis Gras Day in 2012. ~ Jason Ankeny & Thom Jurek, Rovi

not so great? I disagree , must be stuck in the past, innovative is the word, you cant play one galactic song on any instument i bet, leave your negitive s**t at the door
Their first few albums were great, but the last couple were not so great.

To Nicholas, and whomever, Galactic is always touring. If you haven't seen'em, check'em out, tightest live show you are liable to ever see!
Rollin down the boulevard, with your arm out the window...che c k ' n out the hotties and show'n your groove thang...
I love Galactic!! I usually love singing in my music (which is hard to come by in Galactic's stuff) but I love their melodies and textures!! Does anyone know if they are touring or anything? This is one group that I would definitely like to see live even though it is not my usual musical association! (but I like a ton of different stuff anyway)
More highly superior music to enjoy!!!!
caught galactic in norfolk va in 2001 I think...easy my mind was...blowin g
Now that's FUNKY

Every time Galactice comes up on the queue, my ears go, wooooww all by themselves. Nice groove.
One of the best live music bands out there. I've seen them over 50 times! Do yourself a favor, next time they come to your town go see them.

groove holmes......
Love um
I remember meeting these guys while I was @Tulane and living in New Orleans circa 1994, I believe they were called Galactic Prophylactic (great name) then, and they were jammin' @Checkpoint Charlie's, while people were doing laundry in the bar/ laundromat. It's cool to see how they have continued to bring the Nola funkified vibes to the world, including performing recently with Cyril Neville... keep funkin' it up!
If you are in NOLA for Mardi Gras, you NEED to see Galactic play Tipitiana's on Lundi Gras(the night before Mardi Gras). I've seen them start at midnight and jam till 5 a.m. Unbelieveabl e show.
Beyond Jam! New Orleans Y'all!
Stanton Moore is the best drummer you see Live in a small Venue. Love the Funk.
Galactic is ridiculous! see them live, I think the correlation between them and Jam is that they play alot of music festivals that headline jam bands so their live shows tend to be more jam then their recorded ones! awesome funky sound!
I hear a lot of influence from Herbie Hancock and his "Headhunters " and "Manchild" albums
came up on my Greatful Dead Chanel many times....I like...but to categorize them as jam.....not too sure
great jazz funk band from new orleans
Every dude who loved WSP etc. when I was in college also loved Galactic. Pandora is one step ahead of you
Some funky dudes!! Got introduced to them in Colorado. & I find out they'replayi n in Cleveland. Now, if I can only find a friend that boogies!!
funky mother f**kin meters , hell i even like it when galactic did there little hip hoppy thing its good when you wanna get in that rob a bank mode ,ya know...peace
Reminds me of Blackaliciou s

There new album From The Corner To The Block was awesome. It sounds like what Hip Hop would have sounded like before the turntable was invented.
