Hailing from the soggy streets of New Orleans, the Meters essentially invented the second line groove, influencing Funk music like no other artist (OK, aside from a singer by the name of James Brown). These cats are essentially one unified rhythm section, with expertly timed drum breaks, bass driven grooves, bluesy chicken scratch guitars and Southern sing along choruses.

Their 1975 album Fire On The Bayou established once again that The Meters were still the undisputed masters of Funk. Tracks like “Can You Do Without”, “Out In The Country” and the title track have become staples in the Meters’ songbook.
