Winter Circle Productions presents Dr. John at The Joy Theater “Louis Armstrong Tribute”

It was a night different than any other Dr. John concert I can remember. This night was about Dr. John yes, but not exclusively. He decided to do all song tributes to another New Orleans Musical Legend “Louis Armstrong”. The Crowd was willing and enthusiastic. All tracks from Dr. John’s Album “Ske-Dat-De-Dat,”

from “Ske-Dat-De-Dat,” which interprets 13 numbers from across Armstrong’s career, features a cavalcade of guest artists, including Bonnie Raitt, Nicholas Payton, Ledisi, Shemekia Copeland, the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, the Blind Boys of Alabama, and others. Though long-planned, the album is a pendulum swing away from its predecessor, the slinky hard rocker “Locked Down,” produced by the Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach, which earned Mac his sixth Grammy award in 2012. (Press materials note that the Joy setlist will be culled from the full breadth of the eclectic doctor’s career.)
