“Dr. John is more than just a legendary blues pianist. He’s a genuine New Orleans character.”
—NPR

For over 40 years, Dr. John has taken the exuberant and raucous sound of New Orleans under his wing, preserving its lore and channeling it through his own style of rhythm and blues. This spring, the good doctor comes to BAM with an extraordinary entourage of musical guests for an artistic residency, offering three distinct perspectives on his formidable career.

"Funky But It's Nu Awlins" is an all-out celebration of music from the Big Easy. All-star luminaries from New Orleans past and present join the good doctor for this funk-filled program of letting loose as only the Mardi Gras faithful know how.
