GALLEON is an Atlanta-based musical group which steadfastly believes life is too short to settle for ordinary music. Now comprised of Elliott & June Michaels, William Easterling, Mike Shea, John Patka, and Martin Alvarez, this electric outfit performs a variety of rock, folk-rock, and modern country music, combining well-crafted, tastefully melodic original songs with choice deep-cut cover tunes, and performing it all with their own unique and special style and the highest level of professionalism. Thus, the band makes music that sails above and beyond all the rest!
GALLEON's music is a fusion of the best elements of jazz, country, blues, gospel, folk, and African and Latin musical styles - the same elements that were fused together to forge rock music in the first place. So it's still rock & roll to GALLEON!
The chemistry and camaraderie among musical partners Alvarez, Patka, Shea, Easterling, and Mr. & Mrs. Michaels is most evident in GALLEON's assertive but cohesive sound, imposing stage presence, and commanding performance. The group has played regularly at Atlanta-area nightclubs and special events, and they are now looking to play their special brand of music throughout the Southeastern United States once the virus crisis has blown out to sea.
