Next Friday night, March 22nd, Page McConnell will team up with three members of legendary New Orleans band The Original Meters, aka The Meter Men to perform at the elegant Grand Ballroom in New York City. The quartet features the Phish keyboardist along with bassist George Porter Jr., drummer Zigaboo Modeliste and guitarist Leo Nocentelli from The Meters.
Page and The Meter Men first visited NYC just after SuperStorm Sandy hit, limiting transportation options for some of those who were looking to attend. Those who did make it out caught a pair of memorable performances that were heavy on funk and otherworldly musicianship. From the looks of the videos we shared from the group’s first 2013 set, they are picking up right where they left off.
