metersNew Orleans funk band Funky Meters originally started off in the 1960s and 1970s as The Meters.

Today, founding members Art Neville and George Porter Jr., are joined by Brian Stoltz on guitar and Russell Batiste Jr. on drums and are known officially as the Funky Meters. They play all the great hits of the Meters that will get everybody moving on Brown’s Island.

Also playing will be Mekong Xpress and the Get Fresh Horns, who play regularly at Mekong and are a sight to behold.
