Diz Watson and The Doormen
2 Empire Mews
A celebration of the life and music of Dr John, pianist, singer and songwriter steeped in the musical forms and voodoo culture of his native New Orleans led by Diz Watson. "Diz is great, you can't fool him. He really can play that piano" Dr John Diz is one of the British greats when it comes to barrelhouse piano and New Orleans boogie. Credited by Ben Waters as an early influence and heralded by some of the finest New Orleans’ musicians of all time. Add to that the time Diz spent playing with Dr. John (including the recording of a live album, ‘Such A Night! Live In London’), then there really is no better man to lead this tribute to an extraordinary musician with a unique and lasting legacy.
