Tonight – Monday June 7 – George Porter Jr. will return to New Orleans’ Maple Leaf Bar for two shows.
The Meters bassist, who has hosted regular residencies at the club for years, will perform with his Porter Trio. The set marks his first shows at the space in front of an audience since the pandemic hit.
Later this month, Porter will also join Dumpstaphunk and Jon Cleary for some New Orleans Road Revue dates.
The Big Easy celebrations will take place at Denver’s Levitt Pavilio on June 24 as well as the Hotel Jerome and Belly Up in Aspen, Colo. from June 25-27 as part of the JAS Aspen Snowmass.
Porter recently sat in with some members of Dumpstaphunk and some other local musicians for a few Meters tunes at the New Orleans’ Zony Mash.
