Suzy and I saw Galactic many times in the late 1990s. They opened for Widespread Panic on a couple tours and we always made a point to catch their small Colorado mountain town shows. Their New Orleans style funk is reminiscent of The Funky Meters. The funky instrumentals lead by drummer Stanton Moore were mind blowing and the soulful voice of The Houseman was a show we wanted to see every chance we got.
Since those early days, the band's sound has changed a little but their ability to throw down serious jams has not. They've recently been touring with Living Colour's Corey Glover on vocals. If you've never listened to Galactic or even if its just been a while, do yourself a favor and watch these videos.
Check out this brand new sound featuring last week's Music Monday artist, JJ Grey on vocals.
Search for Galactic on Spotify, Pandora or your local music store or head over to their website for tour dates.
