In their 31-year history, The Meters have grooved their way around the globe. They have toured with such talents as The Rolling Stones, and have been a studio band for such diverse artists as Dr. John, Paul McCartney, Robert Palmer, and Patti Labelle. The original Meters disbanded in the late 70's. Today founding members Art Neville and George Porter Jr., are joined by New Orleans native Brian Stoltz on guitar and Russell Batiste Jr. on drums and are known officially as the funky METERS. funky METERS tap into the roots of The Meters musical heritage while taking the sound well into the future. Their trademark sound blends funk, blues, and dance grooves with a New Orleans vibe.
The Greyboy Allstars
It has been 20 years since The Greyboy Allstars—frequenters of the scene surrounding the `70s soul-and-funk-spinning DJ Greyboy—formed in San Diego, with their producer and label owner as a namesake. The band's 1995 debut, West Coast Boogaloo, has influenced countless other artists and groups, and the Allstars' early work together launched, for each member, a unique kind of prolific and highly successful solo career.
Six and a half feet of raw emotion and sweat, with one leather boot planted in gutsy R&B, the other in taut minimalist grind. Snarling at the crowd beneath an afro pompadour, while indulging in a sly wink, singing to you directly, and here to make you dance. What does post-punk soul look like? It looks like JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound.
Emerging from the vital Chicago underground Hip-Hop community of the late 90s, his role as producer naturally kept him behind the scenes, tweaking levels and digging for 'breaks,' yet fans quickly began to associate hard, organic drums and deftly chopped/arranged dusty samples with 'The Sound of Maker.'
