I was able to mix FOH for him when he was through town. Solid show, maybe 4-5 years ago.

RIP Dr. John. 

They don't make 'em like that anymore.

It's a sad day.

Legend is an understatement.  RIP, Art.

I didn't see it mentioned yet, but Joćo Gilberto passed away in early July this year, he was 88.

Thanks for the beautiful music, which is always a good start to a gig.
