I was a little disappointed when they played a few years back, a band of their quality being reduced to a backing group for a couple of rappers (although it was their creative decision). However, both their sets this year were fantastic - Cyril was incredible and Corey Henry almost singlehandedly brought down the Jambalaya tent on Thursday night with his unbelievable trombone. Incredible! And Stanton Moore.....phew...what a drummer!

Hangin' out on Frenchmen

Agreed. I have a new respect for the trombone! Haven't seen anything like that before. Great stuff.

Was also disappointed with Galactic two years ago (I think), but thoroughly enjoyed them this year, as many did at Mojo - great for the crowd to see such a band.
Bonerama have a brilliant trombone player who even uses wahwah - have a look at them - awesome band that even does Black Sabbath!!!! Heavy version of Galactic.
