Born in New Orleans in 1940 as Malcom John Rebennack, he eventually took the stage name of Dr. John and went on to become a legendary songwriter, pianist and guitarist whose iconic music combines blues, jazz, boogie woogie, Cajun and rock n’ roll influences. At an early age he was exposed to burgeoning rock artists such as Little Richard, Guitar Slim, James Booker, Earl King and Professor Longhair, all who played a big influence on Dr. John’s developing style. In 1965 he moved to Los Angeles where he became a “first call” session musician in the LA studio scene in the 1960s and '70s and was part of the “Wrecking Crew” stable of studio musicians. He backed up Sonny & Cher, Canned Heat, Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention and many others. By the mid-1960s, Rebennack’s fascination and preoccupation with New Orleans voodoo culture helped to influence and develop the idea for what would become the Dr. John persona which would define him for the rest of his career.

By 1968 he started to gain fame as a solo-artist using the persona of Dr. John the Night Tripper and featuring elaborate costumes and stage shows influenced by Screamin’ Jay Hawkins act. Gris-Gris was Dr. John’s debut album for Atco Records and is ranked #143rd on Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time list. He recorded three more albums for Atco: Babylon (1969), Remedies (1970) and The Sun, Moon and Herbs (1971) that all followed suit with voodoo influences and New Orleans traditional music. By 1971, Dr. John had gained a notable cult following that included artists such as Eric Clapton and Mick Jagger, both of whom took part in the Sun, Moon and Herbs sessions. He is best known for his recordings done between the years 1972-1974 and Dr. John’s Gumbo cut in 1972 is considered a cornerstone of New Orleans music. The single from the album, “Iko, Iko” broke into the Billboard Hot 100 chart reaching #71. The album was ranked 404 on Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time List. In 1973, produced by Allen Toussaint and backed by the Meters, Dr. John released the seminal New Orleans funk album, In The Right Place. Rooted in solid R&B it reached #24 on the Billboard album chart anchored by the hit single, “Right Place Wrong Time” that peaked at #9 on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles chart and has gone on to become a heavily played staple on classic rock radio to this day. Dr. John has recorded more than 20 albums and is the winner of six Grammy® Awards. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2011 and continues to tour and record to this day.
