The Meter Men featuring Page McConnell have confirmed a pair of 2015 dates. The veteran New Orleans musicians will welcome the Phish keyboardist for shows at New Orleans’ The Joy Theater on April 24 and 25, 2015. This special two-night run will take place during the first weekend of New Orleans’ Jazz and Heritage Fest. Earphunk will open both nights.

In addition, Porter performs with original Meters keyboardist and co-founder Art Neville in the funky Meters.
