Dr. John was recently interviewed by the San Diego Union-Tribune about his career and influences and interesting episodes in his life.

Join us early on July 27 for a celebration of New Orleans! Starting at 6:00 PM, our new Bayside Brews food and entertainment area will be featuring specialty drinks like Big Easy 75 (gin, lemon juice, peach puree and champagne) and Bayside Hurricane (light & dark rum, passion fruit, orange and lime juice) along with pre-concert entertainment by The Bayou Brothers and the Bon Temps Social Club. Then the night heats up with Euphoria and the incomparable Dr. John on the main stage beginning at 7:30pm.
