Seminal New Orleans group Galactic, featuring singer Erica Falls, performs jam-based grooves inspired by the vibrant funk, R&B, and jazz traditions of their hometown. Opening the show is San Francisco-based Baby & The Luvies, a high-energy, soul-inspired, 10-piece dance band.
“Formed in 1994, Galactic is led by co-founding members guitarist Jeff Raines and bassist Robert Mercurio. Galactic has gained a loyal following with a near-constant touring schedule, epic hometown throwdowns, and collaborations with artists like Macy Gray, Mavis Staples, Trombone Shorty, Maceo Parker, and Medeski, Martin & Wood.”
“Echoing retro sounds with tight horn arrangements and powerful vocals, San Francisco-based Baby & The Luvies is an original 10-piece dance band based in San Francisco. Baby & The Luvies has performed throughout the Bay Area supporting national touring acts including Fantastic Negrito, Con Brio, Beat Mosaic, Gene Washington and the Ironsides, and more.”
