Zigaboo Asks You to Funk Me Hard

Meters drummer Zigaboo Modelistes next album will be an archival release. _

Funk Me Hard_ was recorded live in New Orleans Sanger Theater in 1980 at a show featuring The Meters and all of their solo projects. As legend has it, the recording of this show was done by a small group of filmmakers who intended to release a video of The Meters live in concert. The bill consisted of four actsThe Meters, The Neville Brothers, George Porter Jr. & The Runnin Pardners, and, finally, Zigaboos band, Gaboons Gang. During this time, Zigaboo was just departing from the Meters and beginning to forge his own path. This musical evolution is ever present in his performance with Gaboons Gang.
According to reports, the video of the performance still remains tucked away in the archives.
