Also on the bill is venerable hoodoo guru Dr. John. Born Mac Rebennack, Dr. John grew up in the brothels and drug dens of New Orleans' Storyville, only to emerge with a raspy scat and virtuosic piano talent that have set him alongside the Crescent City's greatest legends. Between him and King, you'll fill your entire yearly allowance of soul in one blues-drenched night.
B.B. King, Dr. John, Shemekia Copeland, and the Muddy Waters Blues Band play at 7 p.m. Friday, December 31, at the Mizner Park Amphitheater, 590 Plaza Real, Boca Raton. Tickets cost $65. Call 561-966-3309.
