As a top studio band in the 1960s and '70s, the Meters recorded seminal New Orleans Funk. Art Neville fronted the band, bringing his talent, keyboard, and occasional vocals to their songs.
One of my favorite tunes of all time is their rendition of a trip to the
New Orleans Audubon Zoo:

We just came back from the Guadalajara Zoo
and there is a bit of a resemblance!
Don't miss the Guadalajara Zoo if you are in the area.
It is fun, a bargain for the price, the animals are well cared for,
and even the food was good!
See for yourself:
This little pink elephant was sound asleep on dad's shoulder.
By this time I was wishing for a shoulder to nap on too.
Many more animals and very attractive displays
than I could ever post here.
The only animal enclosure I was not impressed with
was the home for the elephants.
They are dear to my heart and I was a little
dismayed at how small and barren it was.
Not to mention how utterly boring it must be for these intelligent beings.
The Guad Zoo is big and well designed and has wheelchairs
for those who would have a hard time doing it all on foot,
and big blue porpoises on wheels for kids to ride in.
Also trams and trains, ramps and pathways,
all in all I thought it was very user friendly.
We found at least 4 restaurants that were clean and with tasty food
and each one had a different menu. Snack shops abound.
Prices were very good.
All in all, it was a fine day for me and my pals!
