New Orleans native George Porter Jr. will likely celebrate the Saints Super Bowl victory over the coming days but he has much more planned as well. Next Monday February 15, he will celebrate Lundi Gras with his annual gig at Howlin’ Wolf, a free show with the Runnin’ Pardners. Then he will board a plane and head to New York City for BB King’s Fat Tuesday Funk Jam. At this Mardi Gras show he will be joined by his longtime Meters bandmate Leo Nocentelli as well as Henry Butler on keys and Adam Deitch on drums. Porter also will perform with Deitch tomorrow night (February 10) in NOLA at Tipitina’s during Papa Mali’s 3rd Annual Supernatural Ball which also features Eric Krasno, Nigel Hall and Josh Charles.
