Years of being compared to the music of The Meters has paid off, this year, The New Mastersounds lead a workshop at High Sierra Music Festival entitled "Funkify Your Life: A Look Into The Music of The Meters." After Art Neville, founding member of The Meters, caught wind of the video he could barely contain his excitement and reached out to form a funk alliance. Catch them on October 31 for their first time ever performing an entire night of music together.
