Galactic’s omnivorous musical interests make easy classification utterly impossible. “I’ve never
been able to put a label on what we do,” explains band member Benn Ellman. “I could say it’s
funk or I could say it’s R&B or jazz or whatever else, but really, it’s all of that.”
Formed in New Orleans in 1994, the iconic American jam band has released 13 studio albums
and toured around the world. 2019 marks Galactic’s first new studio album in more than three
years, ALREADY READY ALREADY , released on their own Tchuop-Zilla Records.
