The Funky Meters
New Orleans funk maestros reunite
This legendary NOLA band have been bringing the grooves ever since the '60s. Even cooler? The fact that they still knock it out of the park at fests like San Francisco’s Outside Lands to this day. Their bluesy dance music works across genre lines too; A Tribe Called Quest and The Beastie Boys have sampled their tracks and The Red Hot Chili Peppers covered the Meters’ song on their 1985 album. Talk about influential. They’ll be joined by the lovely Kendra Morris. General admission. Over 21s only.
"Their dense, repetitive sound, which placed the rhythm section at its very centre, earned them a mighty reputation."
