Page McConnell & The Meter Men have become a staple of New Orleans
Jazz Fest late
nights and that trend will continue in 2014 as the quartet will play Republic on April 25
and 26. The interesting pairing of Stanton Moore and Marco
open on the 25th, while The London Souls kick things off on the 26th.
The Meter Men consists of three original members of The Meters - Zigaboo Modeliste, George
Porter Jr. and Leo Nocentelli. The quartet, featuring the three Meters joined by Phish
keyboardist Page McConnell, focus on material from the legendary funk act's illustrious
career. Doors open at 9 p.m. each night with the music set to start at 10. Tickets for
shows go on sale this Saturday, March 8, at 11 a.m. CT via Ticketweb.
Both shows are part of the 3rd
Annual Nolafunk Jazz Fest Series, which also features performances from the likes of
Dead Feat, JoJo Hermann & The New Orleans Suspects's Down On The Bayou V benefit, Tab
Benoit’s Swampland Jam and more.
