NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) –  The US Postal Service unveiled their 27th  Jazz and Heritage Festival commemorative envelope in celebration of The Meters.

We spoke with original members Art Neville, George Porter Jr.,  Joseph “Zigaboo Modeliste, and Leo Nocentelli, and they all share how special it to occasionally play together.

Everyone in attendance at the George and Joyce Wein Heritage Center were treated to a preview performance by the ground-breaking R & B giants.
