"IT'S COOL TO SEE MUSIC WE MADE 50 YEARS AGO INSPIRING YOUNG MUSICIANS...I'M GLAD THEY'RE LISTENING. 7 COME 11 TAKE THAT INSPIRATION AND DO THEIR OWN THING...
CHECK THEM OUT, THEY ARE THROWIN' BRICKS LIVE!””
- Art “Poppa Funk” Neville, The Meters & Neville Brothers
7 Come 11 is the brainchild of San Francisco Bay Area based musician Gianni Staiano.
This past year has seen Staiano share the stage with some of his musical heroes the funky METERS, and The Original Meters whom he has supported on numerous shows, including the Original Meters 50th anniversary show at the Orpheum Theatre in New Orleans during the New Orleans’ Jazz and Heritage Festival. He has also warmed up the rooms for dance inducing funk power houses Con Brio, Lettuce, and Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk.
