Galactic are the new sound of New Orleans funk. Imagine mixing the Meters and Medeski, Martin and Wood and you'd have Galactic's twin stepbrother.

The band formed in 1994 and consists of:
Jeff Raines (guitar)
Rich Vogel (organ)
Robert Mercurio (bass)
Ben Ellman (saxophone)
Jason Mingledorf (saxophone)
Stanton Moore (drums)
Theryl deClouet (occasional vocals)

Coolin' Off 1996
Crazyhorse Mongoose 1998
Late For the Future 2000

Galactic was signed to Capricorn Records in 1998, and will tour as the opening act for Counting Crows and Live this summer. Drummer Stanton Moore has a solo album also on Capricorn, but I can't remember what it's called.

Galactic is a free tape swap band that encourages recording of its shows. If you got any ISO shows /msg me:)
