The Trio and The Duo
On most Thursdays Johnny Vidacovich and George Porter Jr. perform at New Orleans The Maple Leaf. Each week the longtime collaborators are joined by a different guest musician for an evening that is dubbed The Trio. Though the musicians guest collaborator is often a surprise, we can now confirm that The Duos Marco Benevento will round out The Trio this evening. Benevento is in town for a slew of shows with a variety of different bands, including a Garage a Trois date at One Eyed Jacks (5/1), a early morning Duo show at The Colton Theatre (5/1, technically early morning 5/2), a Bustle in Your Hedgerow spot at Tipitinas (5/2) and a CD release party for his own trio at The Blue Nile (5/3). Porter can be found at the JazzFest Fairgrounds this afternoon playing with a variety of musicians, including his former Meters bandmates.
