Galactic ends Meijer Gardens summer concert series in Grand Rapids with Heavy Hours
Galactic served as the grand finale of the “Fifth Third Bank Concert Series at Meijer Gardens” in Frédéric Meijer Gardens in Grand Rapids, MI Sunday. Louisiana’s future funk outfit has been associated with The heavy hours after a late cancellation by Salad.
The two prolific funk groups were supposed to close the concert series, which hosted performances by McGee of Umphrey, Saint Paul and the Broken Bones, and more this summer, until Lettuce clears his September tour schedule due to a positive COVID-19 test within the group. The Cincinnati, OH Heavy Hours answered the call, however, heading to Grand Rapids after a set at Summer festival in Milwaukee, WI earlier this weekend.

Galactic is off the road until an appearance on October 2 at Maple wood before heading to the group’s own Tipitina in New Orleans on October 9-16. Lettuce is set to return to the stage with an appearance on October 28 at Suwannee hulaween in Live Oak, Florida.
