New Orleans native jam band Galactic will be performing at the Fonda Theatre on March 4 featuring Cyril Neville & Erica Falls. The group has been active for more than 20 years drawing inspiration from the sounds bubbling up from their city’s streets as they do from each other.
A key part of that creative spark comes from the teamwork of Mercurio and Ellman, who, with their rest of the group, have created a fusion jazz experience like no other. The band’s latest release was “Into the Deep” in 2015, an effort that saw the band members look within themselves instead, drawing inspiration from people and ideas that have long been close to their hearts – and, in turn, close to the development of their unique sound. Shot through with soul, funk, blues and rock, the result is an organic riff on elements of Galactic’s past, filtered through the lens of where they’re headed in 2015.
Be sure to catch the band when they visit the Fonda Theatre in March!
