"If I could not perform tomorrow, I know that I would still feel good about where I am today" -George Porter, Jr.

A brief look at George Porter, Jr.’s career will prove that he is the premiere bass player and performer.

Unmatched and in a league of his own, his career has spanned nearly thirty years working with artists as diverse as Robbie Robertson, Tori Amos, David Byrne and Earl King.

Further inspection at the roster of artist with whom he has performed is a virtual Who’s who of the entertainment field. Beginning in the 60''s, his career started with Eddie Bo and Irving bannister & His All-stars.

His recording career also began at that time, recording hundreds of songs with Allen Toussaint, Earl King, Lee Dorsey and Johnny Adams.

1965 began a collaboration that has lasted to this day with the Legendary Meters, considered by many, the best Rock-Fusion Band in the world.

The seventies and eighties took George Porter, Jr. into the realms of Rock and Pop working with Dr. John, Paul McCartney, Robert Palmer, Patti Labelle and Jimmy Buffett, amongst others.

The nineties might very well prove the most auspicious, as he gains further recognition due to his work with Robbie Robertson, David Byrne, Tori Amos, Gov''t Mule and The Funky Meters.

Born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana, George Porter, Jr. continues to live there; although his career has kept him on the road a good deal of the time. When not touring he can be found in the recording studio, performing in New Orleans, or sharing valued time with his wife Ara, and family.
