The bands repertoire was never simply based on “Gimmicky” songs. Each band member is a vocalist of some note and each has a fondness for particular musical styles and songwriters. This has always been reflected in the live show. In fact a lot of the songs performed by Galleon were penned by the members themselves. They have always and continue to give there music new life and of course the “Galleon Vocal sound” always shines through in choruses.
