PAGE MCCONNELL AND THREE QUARTERS OF THE METERS
TO PLAY BB KING BLUES CLUB IN NYC
Zigaboo Modeliste, Leo Nocentelli, and George Porter Jr. have confirmed plans to reunite as The Metermen and join forces with Phish keyboardist Page McConnell for a historic two-night run at B.B. King Blues Club in New York City on October 31-November 1. Tickets go on sale Friday, July 20 at Noon EST. Click here and here for more information on each date.
This isn't the first time that Page will be performing with members of the legendary NOLA funk band, having toured with George Porter Jr. for a set of PBS (Porter, Batiste, Stoltz) dates back in 2008.
The Original Meters (with founding keyboardist Art Neville) have occasionally reunited for one-off performances, including one in 2005, two in 2011 (at Bonnaroo and Outside Lands), and one in 2012 at the Howlin' Wolf during New Orleans Jazz Festival.
