As previously reported, Galactic and Tea Leaf Green will perform together at Philadelphia’s TLA on February 4 and New York’s Terminal 5 on February 5. In addition to some other surprises, each night both bands will take the stage together to play a different fan-selected cover. Though the members of Galactic and Tea Leaf Green have appeared together a number of times over the years, this is the first time all the members of both groups have collaborated in such a formal setting. Cyril Neville will also sing with Galactic both nights.
The two groups have narrowed the Throw-down Request Live choices to a pool of six classic covers: “Don’t Do It” (The Band), “Starman” (David Bowie), “I Want You Back” (Jackson 5), “So Lonely” (The Police). “Can’t You Hear Me Knockin‘” (The Rolling Stones) and “You Can Make It If You Try” (Sly & The Family Stone). Most of these songs would be first time covers.
