Galleon is an Atlanta-based musical group which believes life is too short for ordinary music. Comprised of Elliott and 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, combining well-crafted original songs highlighted by strong melodies, intelligent lyrics and powerful emotional content, along with selected deep-cut cover material, 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 very same elements which were fused together to forge rock music in the first place. So it's still rock & roll to Galleon!

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. He first formed Galleon in 1994 and has been busily 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 work, well ... Elliott's a terrific singer and don't you forget it!

Galleon now also features WILLIAM EASTERLING (synthesizer, organ, electric piano, harmony vocals); MIKE SHEA (kit drums, percussion); MARTIN ALVAREZ (bass guitar); JOHN PATKA (lead guitar, harmony vocals); and JUNE ELISE MICHAELS (hand percussion, background vocals, lyrics, administrative support). The spirit, enthusiasm, and professionalism of these musicians helps ensure smooth sailing for Galleon!

The chemistry and camaraderie among musicians Patka, Alvarez, Shea, Easterling, and the Michaels couple is most evident in Galleon's cohesive and assertive sound, imposing stage presence, and commanding performance. The group appears often at Atlanta-area clubs and concert events, and they look forward to playing their special brand of music for you.
