The Meters Covering Neil Young

Since the 1960s, pioneering New Orleans-based funk band The Meters has influenced a nearly countless number of musicians who have developed with the groove-centric style the band is famous for. Original members keyboardist Art Neville, bassist George Porter Jr., guitarist Leo Nocentelli and drummer Joseph “Zigaboo” Modeliste will reunite on April 22 in their hometown at the Orpheum Theater for concert coinciding with the start of Jazz Fest. While many of the group’s catalog of original compositions have become standards of funk, The Meters also covered the work of many other artists, including singer-songwriter Neil Young.
