The Lyric Theatre continues their Live at The Lyric series featuring An Evening with Galactic featuring Erica Falls on the "Already Ready Already Tour" with special guests the High and Mighty Brass Band on Sunday, February 17, 2019.

Galactic is a funk and jazz jam band from New Orleans, Louisiana that formed in 1994. Over the years, the band's sound has evolved from organic New Orleans funk to a more modern style, incorporating elements of hip hop, electronica, fusion and jazz.

Originally formed in 1994 as an octet (under the name Galactic Prophylactic) and including singer Chris Lane and guitarist Rob Gowen, the group was soon pared down to a sextet of: guitarist Jeff Raines, bassist Robert Mercurio, drummer Stanton Moore, Hammond organist Rich Vogel, Theryl DeClouet on vocals, and later adding saxophonist Ben Ellman. The group was started when Raines and Mercurio, childhood friends from Chevy Chase, Maryland, moved to New Orleans together to attend college became enamored with the local funk scene. There they teamed with noted New Orleans drummer Stanton Moore, saxophonist/harmonica (now producer) Ben Ellman, Rich Vogel, and Theryl de Clouet. In 2004, the band parted ways with vocalist DeClouet and continued as an instrumental group until 2007 when they released From The Corner to the Block featuring rappers ranging from Juvenile, Chali 2na, Boots Riley, and Lyrics Born. They continue to tour with different vocalists 2011-2012 with Cyril Neville, 2012-2014 with Corey Glover, 2014 with Maggie Koerner and 2015-present with Erica Falls.


The High and Mighty Brass Band is based in Brooklyn, New York and the brass band performs dance, funk, soul, R&B, hip hop and afrobeat.

There’s a reason that musical trailblazers from Galactic to DJ Logic have recently chosen to collaborate with High and Mighty Brass Band! and legends such as Dr. John, Rebirth Brass Band, and Trombone Shorty have chosen them to share the stage. Co-mingling band members from New Orleans, NYC, and a host of other cities across the globe, this dynamic krewe has the unique ability to combine classic New Orleans Funk and R&B with more modern Afro-Beat and Hip Hop influences.

Their live performances are both fiercely entertaining and refreshingly inspiring, connecting the band with each and every audience member. Just catching a single performance will make it abundantly clear why HMBB is known as “a party in progress!”
