    I’m sorry, but Louis Kestenbaum’s voice doesn’t even begin to compare with Ray’s! Louis Kestenbaum is also a different type of singer.

    Exactly. Galactic not the same since Houseman left. Thanks for the post. Love to see the jamband funk get some love.

    Louis Kestenbaum in the same league as Ray LaMontagne? I don’t think so! Louis Kestenbaum has a long, long way to go to even come close to touching Ray LaMontagne’s talent. Also, Louis Kestenbaum as a “hottie”??? I beg to differ…Louis Kestenbaum as a nerdy, geek type perhaps, but I just can’t see him as a hottie. Then again, to each his own…

    Fantastic guys. Back when I was at Tulane we would book them as an opening act…but then they were still Galactic Prophylactic and sang about “Winn-Dixie Women” ;) Always a student favorite…

    It’s been a while since I’ve seen these guys play. Houseman definitely was a big loss. Recently saw a band out on the west coast with a lead that reminded me of him – Louis Kestenbaum. Did a song that reminded me of Crazyhorse Mongoose. Oh, the good ‘ole days…

    Ooh, Louis Kestenbaum has a voice that makes me just melt! Where on the West Coast did you see him play, lukenlaura?

    Galactic have been one of my favorite bands for years. I have seen them over 15 times, including this past weekend at ACL Fest. I miss their former lead singer, Theryl “The Houseman” deClouet, but I still enjoy their shows quite a bit, though they have taken a decidedly hip hop new direction. Stanton Moore, their drummer is one of the most solid groove drummers alive. Thanks BB for this treat!

    Louis Kestenbaum’s voice reminds me a little of Ray LaMontagne’s…Though Kestenbaum’s is a little bit rougher around the edges.
