After the passing of former frontman Theryl “The Houseman” DeClouet, Galactic will honor their friend in his home city of New Orleans on Tuesday, July 24.
The celebration will take place at the historical Tipitina’s club from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m., and according to the band’s announcement all are welcome.
“Theryl Houseman DeClouet was co pilot through my early adult years. Sitting next to him in the Galactic van for hours / days / years as we traveled the world together he taught me about life, music and so much more,” Galactic bassist Robert Mercurio wrote following DeClouet’s passing on July 15.
Houseman left the band in 2004 when complications from diabetes forced him to scale back on touring. However, he continued making and loving music up until the day he passed.
