Snug Harbor presents
DAVELL CRAWFORD presents A TRIBUTE TO DR. JOHN
Monday November 20th, 2023 7:30pm (Doors: 7:00pm )
Known as The Piano Prince of New Orleans, Davell Crawford is an all-around musical sensation as a pianist, singer, songwriter, and performer. Raised in the church, Davell is the grandson of the rhythm & blues star James "Sugar Boy" Crawford, who wrote the New Orleans hit song “Jockomo,” later known as “Iko Iko.” 
 
Davell has been playing piano since he was seven years old and although he didn't know his grandfather was a musician at the time, the elder Crawford gave him a keyboard when he was 11, and he soon first toured Europe in his early teens. Like so many New Orleans musicians, Crawford brings a synthesis of styles to his playing, weaving together funk, gospel, and R&B to his piano playing, songwriting and singing. A Steinway endorsed pianist, Davell has released more than seven albums since 1995 on imprints such as Rounder Records, Basin Street Records, and more. Bill Taylor from Blues Access proclaims that, “Plain and simple, Davell Crawford is one of the most talented musicians alive.” 

Today marks the Birthday of Dr. John
Having made his final transition in June 2019, the legendary Dr. John is a six-time Grammy Award-winning musician and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee. Known throughout the world as the embodiment of New Orleans’ musical legacy, Dr. John is a true icon in American culture.
