In case you didn't know: while gumbo and creole cooking are both parts of Louisiana culture, they’re not the same thing. Galactic is a funky band from New Orleans, but they aren't just Nawlins funky anymore. Their last several years’ worth of releases show them exploring everything from Brazilian samba, to electronica, to anything drummer/composer Stanton Moore cares to toss in. After all, a groove is composed of a little bit of this, a little bit of that, and a whole lotta OH YEAH. Stretch out your weekend for just one night by shakin’ whatcha mama gave you to Galactic. Their special guest vocalist on this tour is Louisiana singer Maggie Koerner, who sang on Galactic’s Carnivale Electricos album.

    It's incredible that GALACTIC has never made a carnival album yet, but now it’s here. To make CARNIVALE ELECTRICOS, the members of GALACTIC (Ben Ellman, harps and horns; Robert Mercurio, bass; Stanton Moore, drums and percussion; Jeff Raines, guitar; Rich Vogel, keyboards) draw on the skills, stamina, and funk they deploy in the all-night party of their annual Lundi Gras show that goes till sunrise and leads sleeplessly into Mardi Gras day.

    GALACTIC was formed eighteen years ago inNew Orleans, and they cut their teeth playing the biggest party inAmerica: Mardi Gras, when the town shuts down entirely to celebrate. CARNIVALE ELECTRICOS is beyond a party record. It’s a carnival record that evokes the electric atmosphere of a whole city  – make that, whole  cities  –vibrating together all on the same day, fromNew Orleansall down the hemisphere to the mighty megacarnivals ofBrazil. Armed with a slew of carnival-ready guests—including Cyril and Ivan Neville, Mystikal, Mannie Fresh, Moyseis Marques, Casa Samba, the KIPP Renaissance High School Marching Band, and Al "Carnival Time" Johnson (who remakes his all-time hit)—GALACTIC whisks the listener around the neighborhoods to feel the Mardi Gras moment in all its variety of flavors.
