John “Papa” Gros started his career with George Porter Jr.’s Runnin’ Pardners and then formed his own unit, Papa Grows Funk. The band’s weekly gig at the Maple Leaf became an absolute staple of the scene serving up hot greasy, grooveheavy Big Easy funk. Like Toussaint, Longhair, Booker and others before him, Gros is a proud local who carries on the tradition of New Orleans music, both honoring its past and helping to shape its future. For this performance, he pays homage to Dr. John, a legend of the famed New Orleans piano lineage. Gros’ quartet will play a set of their tunes and then will be joined by a Vermont horn section featuring James Harvey, Jake Whitesell and Christopher Hawthorn.
