George Porter, Jr. & Runnin' Pardners
Cafe Istanbul
New Orleans, LA
Share this event:


Few bass players in the history of modern New Orleans music are as storied as George Porter, Jr.. During the course of a career spanning more than four decades, Porter has not only made a deep impression with his work in the legendary Funk progenitors The Meters (along with keyboardist Art Neville, guitarist Leo Nocentelli and drummer Joseph "Zigaboo" Modeliste), but he's notched session work with artists as diverse as Paul McCartney, Jimmy Buffett, David Byrne, Patti LaBelle, Robbie Robertson, Tori Amos, Taj Mahal and Ryan Montbleau, and live performances with Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann, Warren Haynes, John Scofield, Steve Kimock, Eric Krasno (and including recent studio releases with Warren Haynes and Bill Kreutzmann), just to name a few. Early in his career, Porter worked with seminal New Orleans artists like Allen Toussaint, Earl King, Lee Dorsey, and Johnny Adams, Irma Thomas, and The Lastie Brothers as but a few of many examples.

Porter is also the bandleader of his own unique longterm project the Runnin' Pardners. Well respected not only as a quintessential New Orleans band, Runnin' Pardners continue to receive accolades on the national jam band and festival scenes. Porter has assembled some seasoned and talented musicians to join him on this project including familiar Pardners Brint Anderson (guitar) and Michael Lemmler (keyboards), and rising stars on the New Orleans music scene Khris Royal (saxophone) and Terrence Houston (drums).

Porter has proven to be capable of the ultimate fusion of Rock, Funk and R&B, and has gained recognition as one of the industry's elite bass players. He continues to be not only an in-demand performing artist but an accomplished studio musician and producer.

Tonight, Porter features that epic bottom end with his own band the Runnin' Pardners, who will be featured at their funkiest in this, their most intimate Jazzfest 2018 performance (and the EXCLUSIVE Runnin' Pardners show during 2nd Weekend of Jazzfest).
