George Porter Jr. On Tour This Fall

Knocking on your door this fall is iconic bass player George Porter Jr. with his band Runnin’ Pardners. Porter Jr. is a favorite on the live concert and festival circuit for his all-star collaborations. His Runnin’ Pardners side project features seasoned New Orleans funk musicians Brint Anderson (guitar), Michael Lemmler (keyboards), Khris Royal (saxophone), and Terrence Houston (drums). The band will play select dates on both coasts, plus co-headlining dates in Nashville, TN and St. Louis, MO with fellow NOLA funksters Dumpstaphunk and in Washington, DC with Tim Reynolds & TR3.

Although best known as the bassist for The Meters, Porter Jr. is an in-demand bassist who has recently performed with Soulive, The Tedeschi Trucks Band, Mickey Hart, and Steve Kimock. Recent studio credits include work with Dayna Kurtz, Ryan Montbleau, Marianne Faithfull, and Ruthie Foster. He has also toured and recorded as a member of the Warren Haynes Band, John Scofield and the Piety Street Band, and Seven Walkers with Bill Kreutzmann.
