George Porter, Jr.
George Porter, Jr.
George Porter, Jr. is best known as the bassist of The Meters, along with Art Neville, Leo Nocentelli and Joseph Zigaboo Modeliste. The group was formed in the mid 60's and came to be recognized as one of the progenitors of funk then called R&B. The Meters disbanded in 1977, but reformed in 1989. Today the original group still plays the occasional reunions but the Funky Meters, of which Porter and Neville are still members, most prominently keeps the spirit alive.

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 then four decades, Porter has not only made a deep impression with his work in the Meters, 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, 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, The Lastie Brothers again to only name a few.

Porter is also the band leader of his own unique long term project the Runnin’ Pardners, well respected not only as a quintessential New Orleans band, the touring band continues to receive accolades on the jam band and festival scene. He has assembled some seasoned and talented musicians to join him on this project. 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). George Porter Jr. plans to keep a smile on his face. “I feel like I am working towards something that will be remembered.”

Terrence Houston
Terrence Houston
Terrence Houston was born and raised in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Houston was raised in a home where music is the focal point. He received his first drum kit at age four, by age seven was playing every Sunday in church. Houston’s family had a gospel group that included his mother and aunts. Up until age 14, he studied with Lawrence Jackson, who is currently the director of bands at Southern University. In high school, Houston’s passion and love for drums and music grew, and he became the Snare Drum Section Leader and Drum Captain. His studies in music performance continued at Southern University under the tutelage of Herman Jackson & Derrick Hillard. Houston was quickly becoming recognized for his talent, and began touring and performing with hip hop act 2Hipnotic, and shortly after that with a rock cover band on Bourbon Street in New Orleans. He has also performed and recorded with Jermyn Poole, Tyree Neal, Level Six, Fathat Band and Déjà vu.
Shortly after moving to New Orleans, Houston’s talent was heard by George Porter Jr (legendary bassist for the Meters), who quickly hired him to play drums in his solo project, George Porter Jr. & Runnin’ Pardners. There he met Khris Royal (saxophone extraordinaire) forming Khris Royal and Dark Matter shortly thereafter. Porter fondly labeled Terrence the “Groove Guardian”. His attention to the pocket, steady rhythms, and energetic presence is exciting and infectious as well as catching the attention of everyone who sees him.
Houston can be found currently touring and recording with George Porter Jr & Runnin’ Pardners, as well as with Khris Royal and Dark Matter. He’s also in demand playing around New Orleans with “Pocket Time” feat Cornell Williams and Derwin “Big D” Perkins, Up Close & Personal.
