New Orleans funk/jazz band Galactic is a hot bowl of jambalaya on a cold winter’s day. Nothing’s off-limits: funk, jazz, hip-hop, electronica, rock and blues get added to the dish, and the elements simmer together in intelligent jams. Every show is a dance party, with the legendary Stanton Moore on the drums and frequent guests like Trombone Shorty and the Dirty Dozen Brass Band stirring up the crowd. Like a home-cooked meal, Galactic sticks to the bones.
With Charles Bradley & His Extraordinaires.
