TONIGHT! CHIRP welcomes John Papa Gros to Ballard Park!

John Papa Gros was an unanticipated delight and fantastic find last summer when we welcomed him to stand in for the New Orleans Suspects who were stranded down south by a hurricane.

“Sharing New Orleans with the world is my calling,” says pianist and organist John “Papa” Gros (pronounced grow). “That’s what I have been doing and that’s what I’ll do the rest of my life.”

For over three decades, Gros has brought his city’s celebratory culture to listeners around the globe. Gros mixes all the sounds of New Orleans – funk, trad jazz, brass band, blues  – and makes it his own signature gumbo.
