“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.
In “A Louis Armstrong Tribute,” Dr. John leads an all-star celebration of New Orleans’ greatest musical son, Louis Armstrong.
