Dr. John & The Lower 911 Band and The Blind Boys of Alabama: Spirituals to Funk

Based on legendary Carnegie Hall concerts of the 1930s, Dr. John & The Lower 911 and the Blind Boys of Alabama join forces as icons of American music for a rousing night of jazz, blues, and gospel music. Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Dr. John is the living embodiment of New Orleans’ musical heritage. This keyboard master played with the royalty of rock before breaking out on his own and developing “The Night Tripper” persona. He dazzles audiences everywhere with his blend of voodoo mysticism, funk, R&B, psychedelic rock, and Creole. Legends of gospel music, The Blind Boys of Alabama first raised their voices together over 70 years ago and are celebrated for their remarkable longevity, diverse repertoire, and a stunning collection of achievements: five Grammy Awards, a Gospel Music Hall of Fame induction, a National Endowment of the Arts Lifetime Achievement Award, and performances for two U.S. presidents. This fantastic concert is a joy for music fans of all ages.
