Mac Rebennack, better known as Dr. Jon is a boogie and blues pianist with a lovable growl of a voice, featuring New Orleans R&B, rock, and Mardi Gras craziness to come up with his own brand of "voodoo" music

He began building an underground following with both his music and his eccentric stage presence, which found him conducting ceremonial-type events in full Mardi Gras costume. He was nothing if not eclectic. He later  renamed himself " Dr. John, the night tripper" when he recorded his first album, Gris Gris, which according to legend, was hurriedly cut with leftover studio time from a Sonny & Cher recording session
