Astral Project

Astral Project has delighted audiences throughout New Orleans and the world with their improvisational skills and finely-tuned sense of NOLA groove.

A committed student of Eastern philosophy, saxaphonist Tony Dagradi formed the band in 1978 and named it in honor of the musicians’ dedication to seeking out a higher plane of existence. The transcendental rhythms and cutting-edge interplay between Dagradi, bassist James Singleton, drummer Johnny Vidacovich and guitarist Steve Masakowski are a joy to watch whether they’re on the stage at Snug Harbor or taking the international circuit by storm.
