Foundation Of Funk w/ Eric Krasno & Neal Evans :: 5.20.16 :: The Hall At MP :: Brooklyn, NY
Foundation Of Funk featuring legendary members of The Meters George Porter Jr. on bass and Zigaboo Modeliste on drums joined by Soulive/Lettuce guitarist Eric Krasno and keyboardist Neal Evans brought a Northeast run to The Hall At MP in Brooklyn on Friday night. The quartet performed in front of a capacity crowd at the Brooklyn venue following a set from hometown funk act The Pimps Of Joytime. Foundation Of Funk focused on classics from The Meters’ repertoire throughout a long set including “Cissy Strut,” “Funky Miracle” and “Pungee.” Vocalist Alecia Chakour of the Tedeschi Trucks Band came out in the middle of the set to join the foursome on “Leave Me Alone” and a cover of the Beatles’ “Come Together.” Photographer Adam McCullough captured the action on Friday night:
