xfinity Rock Series

GALACTIC cut their teeth playing the biggest party in America -- Mardi Gras!  Inspired by local legends such as Professor Longhair and the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, the band includes Ben Ellman (harps and horns); Robert Mercurio (bass); Stanton Moore (drums and percussion); Jeff Raines (guitar) and Rich Vogel (keyboards).  

Galactic’s collaborative sound has evolved from organic New Orleans funk to a more modern style, incorporating hip hop, electronica, fusion, and jazz.  New album CARNIVALE ELECTRICOS is beyond a party record. It’s a carnival record that evokes the electric atmosphere from New Orleans down to the mighty mega-carnivals of Brazil.  This show will whisk you to the heart of NoLa to feel the Mardi Gras moment in all its variety of flavors! 

Tickets: $38
