SATURDAY, March 1st, 2003 at 8 & 10:30PM, the Inter-Media
Art Center (IMAC) in Huntington, Long Island will host a concert
with blues pianist DR. JOHN.
For over thirty years now, Dr. John has been a general practitioner
specializing in New Orleans R&B. That's not as contradictory
as it may sound. The good Dr. John, nee Mac Rebbenack, is known
for his distinctive ivory-stroking and his unmistakable, whiskey-cured
voice that has infected multitudes with massive doses of rockin'
pneumonia and the boogie-woogie flu. So far, no one has complained.
began his career as a side-man for New Orleans R&B dates
in the mid-fifties and since that time has backed many rock
and pop performers, as well as recording over a dozen albums
of his own. One of modern music's enduring character creations,
with his flamboyant bayou sorcerer attire and smoky evocations
of backwoods magic, Dr. John is a performer well worth welcoming
back to grace IMAC's stage once again.
for this performance are $35.00 ($26.50 for IMAC Members).
