Dr. John & the Nite Trippers

“When Dan Auerbach tells Dave Grohl to his face that Dr. John is “Cooler than you will ever be,” you know you have a different sort of musician. Dr. John is the living embodiment of New Orleans’ musical and cultural heritage, and one of the most influential musicians of the twentieth century. The 74 year old living legend opened up the Miller Lite Stage on Sunday afternoon, playing a career and city spanning set that saw him bring the Big Easy to the DMV like no other could. From a cover of Louis Armstrong’s “What A Wonderful World” to an irreplaceable performance of the NOLA staple “Big Chief,” Dr. John brought the funky, boogie woogie piano, dance music that people have been crazed by for five decades. As Dr. John left the stage, the crowd could only look on in wonder as they realized that they would never see another single person as cool as Dr. John.”
