@LMBNOLA: George Porter TRIO @ Maple Leaf Bar – 8/25/11
Although Johnny V got called to active duty with Voice of the Wetland All-Stars, the Thursday Trio gig pressed on and Terrence Houston did an exceptional job in his stead, Mike Lemmler manned the keys and cookies were still served. George is off to Colorado and Tennessee for the weekend and won’t be back for a Trio gig ’til November. Check out the photo gallery and video from last night’s scorchin’ mini-Runnin’ Pardners gig below.
