Foundations of Funk
Foundations of Funk
Foundation of Funk is the newest project from the legendary Original Meters’ rhythm section, Zigaboo Modeliste & George Porter Jr. The new project will see the influential duo team with select players who have carried on the funk and jam tradition to pay homage to The Meters catalog in a unique collaborative form. Each round of Foundation of Funk shows will feature a different cast of special guests alongside Zig and George diving into the extensive catalog of Meters’ tunes to create a truly unique Meters experience from show to show.

The band debuted in 2015 with two very well received shows featuring Ivan Neville and Tony Hall of Dumpstaphunk, New Year’s Eve in New Orleans for a special performance with The New Mastersounds. In 2016, House of Blues hosted another Foundation of Funk with Ivan and Tony and then on to a Northeast tour of the Foundation of Funk with Eric Krasno and Neal Evans.
