The Funky Meters: Hey Pocky A-Way, Live

Happy Mardi Gras! We’re celebrating with the grooves of the one and only George Porter, Jr. Here’s a great clip of Porter with the Funky Meters, including fellow original Meters member Art Neville, guitarist Brian Stoltz, and drummer David Russell Batiste, Jr.

The quartet sets a slow burn on the Meters classic “Hey Pocky A-Way”, which has become a standard in New Orleans for Carnival time. Porter’s big, fat bass lines lay the perfect foundation to get the crowd in the right mindset.
