Trio feat. Johnny Vidacovich and George Porter Jr. atMaple Leaf Bar
Thursday, February 15
Johnny Vidacovich has become one of the best drummers in a city known for its drummers. Born and bred in New Orleans, Vidacovich has the city’s unique, syncopated backbeat running in his veins. Many outsiders have sought to imitate that sound which comes so naturally to those who grew up exposed to the Big Easy’s street music traditions. One can hear the beat of the street in multifarious places, from the music of the Mardi Gras Indians to the Neville Brothers to Vidacovich himself.. Combined with George Porter Jr. of Meters fame ,and one of the best bass players on the planet, this is a musical treat that is as New Orleans as it gets.
