Galactic, other concerts coming up at Revolution Live
GALACTIC with JJ GREY & MOFRO on Saturday, January 9, 2010 at 9 p.m. at Revolution Live, 200 W. Broward Blvd.
With the release of their sixth album, From the Corner to the Block, the five-man group GALACTIC – drummer Stanton Moore, bassist Robert Mercurio, saxophonist/harmonica player Ben Ellman, keyboardist Richard Vogel, and guitarist Jeff Raines – reaffirms their standing as one of the funkiest outfits in the known universe. Galactic formed in New Orleans where they found themselves intoxicated by the sounds of the scene that nurtured The Meters, Professor Longhair, the Neville Brothers and Dr. John.
Armed with the rhythmic tradition of its hometown, the six-piece future funk outfit has spent over a decade tearing through venues across the world, leaving hordes of die-hard Galactic junkies in its wake. Constantly weaving modern and retrospective styles into its own trademark jazz-funk-rock fusion, Galactic has created a far-reaching canon informed by ongoing influence from a wide range of genres, including hip-hop, blues, pop, and electronica.
Now, with many albums and countless landmark live shows to its credit, Galactic has once again conquered new territory-for now, as an instrumental powerhouse. Galactic applies a sense of classic analog funk to a fresh, progressive dimension of creative freedom. Jazz, hard rock, country blues, and world music styles all find their way into Galactic’s slinky fusion. Each member of the band views the return to instrumental exploration as an opportunity for Galactic to revisit one of its strongest attributes. While the band has always embraced stylistic changes and relished its musical adventures, its instrumental chops have never wavered.
