The funky quintet known as Galactic was formed nearly 20 years ago in New Orleans. They started playing in their city's, and our country's, biggest party: Mardi Gras. They are well accustomed to playing a huge all night celebration, and still bring that same stamina and energy to every stage they take. Are you ready for an authentic Mardi Gras experience in Big Sky Resort when Galactic perform at the 2013 Spruce Moose Festival?

Galactic and their music is still very much rooted in the New Orleans culture. The band, after all these years, has finally made a carnival album (last year's Carnivale Electricos). They also still rely on their skills, experience and stamina for their annual Lundi Gras show at Tipitina's in New Orleans. This legendary show goes until sunrise (leading into Mardi Gras day).

Check out this performance from one such show a few years ago, featuring Grammy Award winning New Orlean's Neville Brother Cyril Neville (whom they often play with). Just a taste of what Big Sky Resort will be in store for at this year's Spruce Moose Festival.

2013 Spruce Moose Festival: Featuring Ozomatli, Galactic and Chali 2na, Friday August 30th and Saturday August 31st, at Big Sky Resort. Tickets available at Cactus Records and Online
