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.
Dr. John leads an all-star celebration of New Orleans' greatest musical son.
