Not a lot of people know about the New Orlean funk band called “The Meters”. So listen to this first.

What do you think? This is off their first LP released in 1969. The Meters are know for fusing the second line rhythms of New Orleans with their funk sound. Commercially The Meters were the house band for Sansu Records and appeared on recording by Allan Toussaint, Dr John, Robert Palmer, Paul McCartney and others who recorded at Sansu Records. Listening to the music and you can hear how they influenced the funk bands of the 70s and 80s. The musicians that formed the Meters are still around and there are several spin off groups still playing this great music.

Join Chuy and Harry on Monday from 2pm-6pm as they explore the music of the Meters. Then on Fri 13 May from 9-midnight Kathleen and Harry  will be back with the Meters and Elmore James during Crazy About the Blues.
