The Meters – Funky Music

The Meters are an American funk band based in New Orleans, Louisiana. The Meters performed and recorded their own music from the late 1960s until 1977. The band played an influential role as backing musicians for other artists, including Lee Dorsey and Dr John.
While The Meters rarely enjoyed significant mainstream success, they are considered along artist like James Brown one of the progenitors of funk music and their work is highly influential on many other bands, both their contemporaries and modern musicians working in the funk idiom.
The Meters’ sound is defined by an earthy combination of tight melodic grooves and highly syncopated New Orleans “second-line” rhythms under highly charged guitar and keyboard riffing. Their songs “Cissy Strut” and “Look-Ka Py Py” are considered funk classics.
