Frenchmen Street’s reigning King of Soul, John Boutte lives and breathes the sounds of the city. His musical stylings can swing back from torchlight jazz to vibrant R&B to soulful gospel in the blink of an eye. Born and raised right here in NOLA, Boutte was steeped in the tradition of second lines and Mardi Gras parades, not to mention the R&B vocals of Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye. All these influences and more are present in his vibrant performances that will soothe your soul, move your feet, and maybe even change your life. You can catch him most Saturday nights at d.b.a. and on stages across town.
