Best known best known as the bassist of The Meters, he’s forged a low end path of monster bass lines that have been studied and deconstructed like The Dead Sea scrolls by funkologoists around the world. The good news is that he’s still doing it and he's coming to town. On July 17, George Porter, Jr. & his band Runnin' Pardners play the Blue Moon for what will surely be a HUGE show.
