Dr. John and The Nite Trippers

Nobody personifies the musical culture of New Orleans with more flair than Dr. John, the celebrated, GRAMMY-laden pianist beloved for his irresistibly funky “voodoo” music – a mix of New Orleans R&B, boogie-woogie, rock’n’roll and a dash of Mardi Gras madness. On this incredible night, the Nite Tripper celebrates the music of another New Orleans music legend, the immortal jazz giant Louis Armstrong, to whom the doctor’s star-studded new Concord album, Ske-Dat-De-Dat: The Spirit of Satch, is dedicated. A six-time GRAMMY winner and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Dr. John is a masterly blues and boogie pianist who played on sessions with Sonny & Cher, Aretha Franklin and The Rolling Stones before introducing the world to his own inimitable brand of New Orleans funk, psychedelia and Fat Tuesday party music. Join us for this dizzying night of Crescent City spirit!
