Dr. John & The Nite Trippers
Dr. John, or Mac Rebennack as known to friends and family, is universally celebrated as the living embodiment of the rich musical heritage exclusive to New Orleans. His very colorful musical career began in the 1950s when he wrote and played guitar on some of the greatest records to come out of the Crescent City.
Several of his many career highlights include the masterful album Sun, Moon and Herbs in 1971 which included cameos from Eric Clapton and Mick Jagger and 1973’s In The Right Place, which contained the chart hits “Right Place Wrong Time” and “Such A Night.” Dr. John garnered Grammy award wins in 1989, 1992, 1996, 2000 and 2008.
In 2012 Dr. John released what is arguably his best album to date, “Locked Down”, produced by Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys. This album claimed Best Blues Album at the 2013 Grammy’s Awards. His Nonesuch debut pays tribute to his past, particularly to such groundbreaking early albums as Gris-Gris and Babylon, while maintaining a solidly contemporary feel. After a half century of creating music for others and himself, Dr. John continues to write, arrange, produce and interpret with a passion that has yet to wane. Touring consistently, he continues to dazzle and delight audiences across the globe.
