Galactic and JJ Grey & Mofro will co-headline a Jazz Fest after show at the the newly-renovated Orpheum Theater. The show–presented by WWOZ–will take place on Saturday, April 30, just a few hours after Stevie Wonder headlines the festival proper at the Fair Grounds Race Course. New York City saxophone duo Moon Hooch will be on hand to open the night.
Galactic took home Album of the Year for their latest release, Into The Deep, at last week’s Best of the Beat Awards. The band’s own Stanton Moore was also honored with Best Drummer accolades at the ceremony. Their upcoming show at the Orpheum is their third New Orleans show on their 2016 schedule, which also includes two Mardi Gras gigs at Tipitina’s in early February.
WWOZ will release a limited number of pre-sale tickets for the Orpheum Theater show at 11am on Tuesday, January 26. Tickets will go on sale to the general public on Friday, January 29.
