You know them now…but what did they sound like way back when?
Dr. John & The Nite Trippers
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and multi-Grammy winning artist, Dr. John, knows a thing or too about singing the blues. This New-Orleans native has been shaping traditional soul music for well over half a century, bringing a unique blend of voodoo mysticism, funk, rhythm & blues, psychedelic rock and Creole roots.
Early in his career he began playing on records by Sonny and Cher, Van Morrison, Aretha Franklin and The Rolling Stones. He developed his charismatic persona of Dr. John the Night Tripper, and soon after released his breakthrough album “Gris-Gris” in 1968. With dozens of albums under his belt, there’s so many rhythmic song to groove out to, but his chart-topping hits “Right Place Wrong Time” and “Such A Night” never disappoint.

Dr. John & The Nite Trippers will be playing Sunday 1:30-2:30pm on the Miller Lite Stage.
