Photos / Stream / Download | funky Meters @ Concord Music Hall 2/27/15


Chicago audiences are grateful to grab a slice of Mr George Porter Jr. and Mr. Art Neville any way they can get them.

They provided the star power on Friday night at Concord Music Hall, but Stoltz and Baptiste kept their end of the bargain in an exceedingly funky night rooted in celebration of the indelible and expandable catalog of The Meters.

Have a listen to the stream below, you'll find the these guys find some great new spaces in these classic tunes --  stretching out on both the classic hits and deeper cuts. The jams get incredibly long and funky, especially near the end of the night, but that's right there in their name.


It's a pleasure to have this crew pumping out this remarkable music.

Rickie Kostiner was on hand to capture some images of the night.  You'll find plenty of smiles from the band, the fans, and even opening band Zaramela who she describes as "a very young, but groovy band melding jazz, rap, hip-hop, and rock."

The first opening band, 'Zaramela' is a very young but groovy band melding jazz, rap, hip-hop, and rock music.  I am interested to see how these guys grow in the music scene.
I hate to say it, but the other opening band, 'Woo Park,' didn't really do anything to improve the show.  Their effort was awesome, but some pieces just seemed missing.  I definitely wanted something a little more funky to warm up to the Funky Meters.
