Dr. John & the Nite Trippers
Delivering unique and authentic New Orleans, boogie-woogie jazz performances, Dr. John is praised for his funky, bluesy influence on rock that landed him a spot on the Hall of Fame and won him six Grammy Awards. Since gaining a cult following in the late 1960s Dr. John has recorded over 20 albums and in 1973 scored a top-20 hit with the jaunty funk-flavored "Right Place Wrong Time," still perhaps his best-known song. 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.
The Nite Trippers have traveled with Dr. John for the last few years, adding to the New Orleans blues, jazz and pop energies that Dr. John creates in his performances. Its members include Sarah Morrow, who once played in Ray Charles’ orchestra, on the trombone, Reggie Jackson on drums, Dwight Bailey on bass, Dave Yoke on guitar, and Bobby Floyd on the organ.
