Galactic has been on the touring music scene for well over a decade.  Through the life of the band, they have managed to continually evolve and bring something new to the table year after year.  Many of Galactic’s previous visits to the Cincinnati area, the band chose to play the dirty and blighted Bogart’s on Short Vine.  The last time they performed in the area was as an opening act for Widespread Panic’s performance at US Bank Arena on 4/9/2008.  Prior to this, is was November 3, 2005 that Galactic last played Cincinnati at Bogart’s.  Fast forward to 2011 and Galactic is out on the road to support their recent album Ya Ka May.  This past Sunday night, music fans in Cincinnati had a chance to catch this New Orleans based funk machine deliver their goods. Not only did Galactic finally make it back to Cincinnati, they brought Corey Glover from Living Color fame to add his flair to the performance.  The sold out 20th Century Theater in Oakley was host to this evening of quality music from one of the most admired bands within the legendary New Orleans music community and the world.  The Noble Visions offers a look into this truly remarkable and memorable performance.
