GALACTIC ANNOUNCE WINTER TOUR

New Orleans funk-rockers Galactic will embark early next month on a US tour that will take them from the snowy north of Detroit MI on February 4th to their balmier hometown for two special tour-ending shows February 21 and 23rd at Tipitinas.

The band writes: "We are pleased to announce that good friends JJ Grey and Mofro will join Galactic on several dates. JJ with his band MOFRO exude rocking, funky, melodic, front porch realism in every song they play. Grey comes from a long tradition of Southern storytellers, and his songs oftentimes use the loss of his natural surroundings and the marginalization of the Southern culture he grew up in as a metaphor for universal truths. The band delivers his material with brilliant musicianship, resulting in music that is thought provoking, rhythmically dynamic and texturally mesmerizing. Surprises and collaborations are expected!"

Additionally, the Mightly Underdogs - featuring Gift of Gab, Lateef the Truth Speaker and Headnodic - are confirmed to join Galactic on several dates.
