The American jam band known as Galactic was established in 1994 in New Orleans, Louisiana. Galactic was formed when founding members Jeff Raines and Robert Mercurio met as children in Chevy Chase, Maryland. After the two graduated from high school, they both chose New Orleans as their university destinations, attending Tulane and Loyola Universities while at the same time forming Galactic and performing around the local area.
Galactic established a strong fan base, with its unique blend of everything from world music to jazz and hip hop. Since releasing their debut album —Coolin’ Off (1996)—the band has released the additional albums: Crazyhorse Mongoose (1998), Late for the Future (2000), Vintage Reserve (2003), Rukus (2003), From the Corner to the Block (2007), and Carnivale Electricos (2012.)
Today, the band is a sextet, consisting of Mercurio and Raines, along with Richard Vogel, Stanton Moore, Ben Ellmen, and Corey Henry. In live performance, Galactic often collaborates onstage with notable New Orleans musicians such as The Neville Brothers, Dirty Dozen Brass Band, George Porter, and Soul Rebels Brass Band. On tour, Galactic often performs as a co-headliner or supporting act for notable bands such as The Roots, Jurassic 5, Jack Johnson, Counting Crows, and Widespread Panic.
Galactic continues to perform, record, and tour with regularity. The band released their latest album, Into the Deep, in 2015.
