The legendary Dr. John is a six-time GRAMMY Award-winning musician and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee.  Known throughout the world as the embodiment of New Orleans’ musical legacy, Dr. John is a true icon in American culture.  His colorful musical career began in the 1950s when he wrote and played guitar on some of the greatest records to come out of the Crescent City, including recordings by Professor Longhair, Art Neville, Joe Tex, Frankie Ford and Allen Toussaint.

In addition to his six GRAMMY wins (1989, 1992, 1996, 2000, 2008 and 2013), he has received six other GRAMMY nominations over the years.  In 2006, he was nominated for Sippiana Hericane, his Hurricane Katrina benefit disc.  After Hurricane Katrina, Dr. John immediately stepped up to the plate with generous relief fund-raising concerts and recordings.  In 2007, he was also inducted into the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame and the Blues Hall of Fame.  In 2008, he released City That Care Forgot, winning a GRAMMY for Best Contemporary Blues Album.  His 2012 release Locked Down, with Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys also won a GRAMMY for Best Contemporary Blues Album.  In 2013 Dr. John was awarded an honorary doctorate from Tulane University alongside His Holiness the Dalai Lama.

Dr. John & The Nite Trippers released The Bare Necessities, produced by Morrow, for Disney's blockbuster The Jungle Book soundtrack in spring, 2016. In the Fall of 2016, Dr. John released the double live album and DVD The Musical Mojo of Dr. John: A Celebration of Mac & His Music with performers including Bruce Springsteen, Widespread Panic, Mavis Staples, Morrow, John Fogerty and many more.
