Galeano June Residency (Featuring Grammy Winner José Galeano of Grupo Fantasma)

Tue · June 26, 2018

Doors: 9:00 pm / Show: 9:30 pm


Grammy® Award-Winner and two time nominee, José Galeano briefly steps aside from Grupo Fantasma where he resides as percussionist, songwriter and front man to lead Galeano, an Afro-Latin, roots rock band built to allow a more personal expression of José’s journey. While growing up in Nicaragua, José was influenced by the music of his uncle “Chepito” Areas, percussionist and timbale player for Santana and a Rock & Roll Hall of Famer.

José began performing at the age of six, and has since had the honor of traveling across the planet with musical legends such as Prince, Sheila E., Larry Harlow and Maceo Parker. He has performed at world-renowned events and venues around the globe, including the Montreal Jazz festival, Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits Festival, the O2 arena and the North Sea Jazz Festival.

José has gained thousands of fans though his charismatic live performances as frontman and percussionist with Grupo over the years. While he fully intends to continue in that position, he feels now is the right time to launch his own band, Galeano and is very excited to see where this music will lead him.
