Galactic Brings The Funk To Brooklyn Bowl

first_imgNew Orleans funk favorites Galactic have been around the block, playing festivals and iconic venues left and right, but they clearly feel right at home at Brooklyn Bowl. Their annual mid-summer run at the Williamsburg staple always feels like a giant Jazz Fest reunion, and last night was no exception.Vocalist Erica Falls dominated the stage for much of the show. The powerhouse is essentially part of the band at this point, adding another level of deeply soulful flavor to the 5-piece ensemble. Longtime touring trombonist Corey Henry helped keep energy levels through the roof throughout the horn-heavy NOLA dance party.The band cycled through their career-spanning catalogue, tackling newer tunes off their most recent release Into the Deep, while getting the crowd hyped with all the classics like “Hey Na Na” and “Heart of Steel”. The New Orleans spirit in the room last night was palpable.The funk outfit will return to the Bowl for the second and final night of the run this evening.Photos by Mark Dershowitz: Load remaining imageslast_img
