Returning to SMF after a sold-out show in 2013, New Orleans giant Dr. John (a.k.a. Mac Rebennack) continues to write, arrange, produce and interpret with a passion that has yet to wane. He was inducted into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame in 2011 for his lifetime contribution to the artform. His continuation of the New Orleans musical tradition, from early writing and performance credits on classic recordings by Professor Longhair, Art Neville, Joe Tex and Frankie Ford, cemented his reputation as a key influence on the modern Crescent City sound. In 2013, Dr. John was awarded an honorary doctorate from Tulane University alongside His Holiness the Dalai Lama. After a half century of creating music for others and himself, Dr. John approaches every project and performance with a renewed conception and energy. Audiences can expect an evening filled with voodoo mysticism, rhythm & blues, psychedelic rock and Creole roots.
