The 2014 New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival - New Orleans, LA - April 25-27, 2014

Events

Galactic: 19 March 2014 - Solana Beach, CA

The band played like a championship basketball team throughout the night, passing the ball around and racking up assists to make sure the squad would have balanced scoring with great shots that came from the flow of the offense.

The consistently high quality of both the performance and the songs begs the question why Anders Osborne isn't a more well-known commodity on the music scene.

Galactic + T-Bird and the Breaks: 31 October 2010 - Austin, TX

If there's a better Halloween scene in America tonight (remember the temperature is also near 70 degrees), it's hard to imagine where it might be.

Galactic + Mike Dillon's Go-Go Jungle: 6 November 2009 - Austin, TX

Galactic is a band that can always be counted on to pull in any possible special guests to enhance a show, as well to tailor their set lists based on location and vibe, so you never know exactly what you'll get.
