About this Event
Don't miss this opportunity to groove in the Garden with the legendary bassist George Porter Jr. First known from his time with The Meters, along with Art Neville, Leo Nocentelli and Joseph Zigaboo Modeliste, formed in the mid 60's and recognized as one of the progenitors of R&B. Porter has since formed his own project, the Runnin' Pardners with well known New Orleans artists Brint Anderson (guitar), Michael Lemmler (keyboards), Khris Royal (saxophone) and Terrence Houston (drums). Porter has proven to be capable of the ultimate fusion of rock, funk, and R&B.
He is recognized as one of the industry's elite bass players - having performed and recorded with artists as diverse as Paul McCartney, Jimmy Buffett, David Byrne, Patti LaBelle, Robbie Robertson, Tori Amos, Taj Mahal, Ryan Montbleau and live performances with Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann, Warren Haynes, John Scofield, Steve Kimock, Eric Krasno, Dead and Company, Soul Rebels Brass Band, Willy DeVille, Robert Palmer, Johnny Adams, Harry Connick Jr., Irma Thomas and the late great Dr. John and Allen Toussaint only to name a few.
