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, Robert Palmer, and Dr. John. The Meters acted as the house band for Allen Toussaint's legendary New Orleans Soul classics of the '60s and are responsible for bringing New Orleans second line grooves into popular music. #RealBlackHistory #Nola #504History!!
