Dr. John Tribute

Søndag 3. juli kl. 15:00

Mardi Gras Copenhagen kickstartes med hyldestkoncert til ingen ringere end Mac Rebennack aka Dr. John. Siden 1960’erne kombinerede han blues, funk, jazz og soul i den lyd, der er så umiskendelig for ‘The Big Easy’. 

Eftermiddagens band består af medlemmer fra Jazz Five, Skipper/Just/Frost og Thorbjørn Risager & The Black Tornado, tilsat fantastiske solister, der alle vil give deres bud på favoritnumre fra doktorens repertoire.

Special guest er den danske New Orleans legende Esben Just samt London baserede soul og blues sangerinde Samantha-antoinette, der bl.a. har sunget med Depeche Mode og Jamiroquai.

Koncerten præsenteres af Mardi Gras Copenhagen i samarbejde med Roots & Jazz.
