DR. JOHN @ BONNAROO 2006
“…They played on a stage decorated with a totem: an abstract cross that looked like it was made from driftwood and skeletons.

A woman dressed in white, like a voodoo celebrant, danced onstage; Dr. John left his keyboards and approached her, tapping on an African-style bell as she shimmied next to him. It was a New Orleans ritual: part tradition, part theater, and geared for a good time…..” [NY TIMES]
