Interstellar! Galactic is jammin’ through St. Petersburg on November 6, 2021 over at Jannus Live and you need to get yourself groovin’ (TICKETS HERE). Galactic is joined by vocal powerhouse Anjelika “Jelly” Joseph onstage, and will feature opening act, Eric Lindell.
First forming in the bustling bayou of New Orleans back in 1994, Galactic has been funkin’ it up all over the globe. Led by bandleaders Jeff Raines, Robert Mercutio, and legendary drummer Stanton Moore, have released 9 studio albums and 2 live ones, as well as a Fats Domino tribute album. They also own their own venue in New Orleans, Tipitina’s, where they play constantly and have turned into their own base of operations.
With a sound that has evolved beyond funk to incorporate hip hop, dance, electronica, and jazz, Galactic has proved that they can do it all in these modern times. They also collaborate with other artists, from Mavis Staples to JJ Grey to famously backing up Juvenile on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Even more so, their seventh album, Carnivale Electricos, features many local New Orleans musicians in a celebration of the influences of Mardi Gras and the cultures that make it up. They had a couple of years they played just as an instrumental band as well, and these jams are some of my favorites:
“Bongo Joe” (Live at Bonnaroo ‘04)
Get going! What are you still doing reading this? It’s time to dance your ass off outside at Jannus Live and feel all the beautiful vibes while you listen to some of the funkiest jams from one of the grooviest bands to grace this planet for the last 25 years. Get your tickets below!
