- THE FUNKY METERS
Alongside Booker T. & The M.G.s and George Clinton’s Funkadelic, The Meters were among the chief architects of the funk movement. And while the legendary New Orleans band’s original lineup hasn’t recorded together since the 1970s, key members Art Neville and George Porter have continued on as the Funky Meters, a band that manages to recapture that second-line funk spirit with its repertoire of both new and classic material. You can catch the group on its return visit to Boulder’s Fox Theatre March 23.
