Music types: Rock, Country
Galleon is an Atlanta-based musical group which is making music great again. Now comprised of Elliott & June Michaels, William Easterling, Mike Shea, Martin Alvarez, and John Patka, this electric outfit plays a variety of rock, folk-rock, and modern country music; blending tastefully melodic, well-crafted original songs with choice deep-cut cover tunes, and performing it all with a very high level of professionalism and their own unique and special style. 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 very same elements which 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 Patka, Alvarez, Shea, Easterling, and Mr. & Mrs. Michaels is most evident in Galleon's cohesive and assertive sound, imposing stage presence, and commanding performance. The group has appeared often at Atlanta-area nightclubs and concert events, and they look forward to growing and progressing as they play their special brand of music throughout the Southeastern United States as soon as the virus crisis is over. Bookings, auditions, and additional information regarding Galleon are handled as follows:

Band Members:
Galleon founder and skipper ELLIOTT MICHAELS (guitar, lead vocals, songwriting) is a seasoned veteran of the music scenes in New York, Los Angeles, and Atlanta. The Brooklyn-born Michaels founded Galleon in 1994 and has been maintaining and improving it ever since. Michaels' impeccable vocal styling and right-on-the-mark songwriting are the foundation on which was built the Galleon! As for his guitar playing, well ... Elliott's a terrific singer and don't you forget it!

Galleon's current lineup also features WILLIAM EASTERLING (polyphonic synthesizer, digital organ, electric piano, harmony vocals, songwriting), a classically-trained musician with an eclectic pop sensibility; MIKE SHEA (kit drums, percussion), a sensational musician whose fierce but tasteful attack belies his mild-mannered behavior; MARTIN ALVAREZ (lead & bass guitar), a talented Florida transplant with plenty of tropical heat and a deep fondness for K*I*S*S; JOHN PATKA (lead & bass guitar, harmony vocals), a well-seasoned rocker and devoted family man with vast and varied influences; and Elliott's lovely wife JUNE ELISE MICHAELS (weapons of hand percussion, harmony vocals, lyrics, administrative support), a long-time new music devotee with lots of get-up-and-go. The spirit, enthusiasm, and professionalism of these musicians helps ensure smooth sailing for Galleon!
