LAST CALL FOR PBS
When PBS plays Tipitina's French Quarter Friday night, it will be its last show for the funk trio with bassist George Porter, Jr. (pictured). "I put in my time," he says. "I gave my 100 percent for four years." The band also includes drummer Russell Batiste and guitarist Brian Stoltz, and earlier this year, they released the live Moodoo earlier this year, along with a series of live downloads. "I wasn't seeing the progress I wanted," Porter says.
