What better way to end your St. Paddy's Day than with some funky good times at The Fox Theatre!? If James Brown is the Godfather of Soul, The Meters are without a doubt the Forefathers of Funk. Meters' legendary bassist George Porter Jr. with special guest Joe Marcinek will be on the hill in Boulder to tap off your day.
The Dead Funk Summit is a culmination of everything Joe Marcinek has done with the Joe Marcinek Band. It started with a concept of a different lineup every weekend using players from all over the country. This led to meeting and playing with prominent members of the Grateful Dead world and the New Orleans Funk scene. It sparked a dream Joe had of bringing together George Porter Jr and Melvin Seals. This historic summit of the two worlds will be the first time the two have shared the stage!
