Born of the concept that in combining members from the "best of the best" of the West-Coast's Soul-Jazz Boogaloo bands with those of the "best of the best" from New Orleans to form a Super group so damn funky and exceptional that it would be the cause of an out-and-out, general freak-out for those that witness this sensational group! Donald Harrison Having recorded with the Headhunter, this sax player from NOLA is a true legend. He also combined jazz with Afro-New Orleans traditional music on his critically acclaimed and influential albums "Indian Blues" in 1991 and "Spirits of Congo Square" in 2000.

Robert Mercurio New Orleans local, and founder of Galactic, this bassist knows how to get groovy. Mercurio has been performing in the funk scene for decades, and never falls short of bringing his unique sound to the table. Robert Walter Robert Walter performs all his own stunts.
