Ian Neville and Skerik Appear with funky Meters as Brian Stoltz Departs
This past Thursday and Friday the funky Meters performed at the Fox Theatre in Boulder as part of the venues 15th anniversary celebration. The line-up for these shows was different from recent performances by the band as guitarist Brian Stoltz had announced that he would be leaving the group. Appearing in his stead was Ian Neville (Dumpstaphunk, Neville Brothers) on guitar as well as Skerik on sax. As for Stoltz, he will continue to perform with two of his funky Meters bandmates, George Porter Jr., and Russell Batiste, in PBS, while focusing on his solo career as well (a live album and a studio disc are both expected in 2007). On Tuesday, PBS will appear at Sherpa and Yeti’s in Breckenridge, CO.
