Four blues masters in a special evening of raw, rural blues and southern rock
Marc Broussard is an artist with a unique gift of channeling the spirits of classic R&B, rock and soul into contemporary terms. This gift has been a matter of common knowledge since 2002, when Broussard released his debut album, Momentary Setback, which he recorded and released independently at age 20. Marc’s song “Home” was a radio success and catapulted him onto the national touring stage. Broussard has been a featured performer on many shows including The Tonight Show, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, Lopez Tonight, and Jimmy Kimmel Live! http://www.marcbroussard.com
Over the course of six albums and a decade of touring, JJ Grey's gritty blend of front porch soul and down-home storytelling has taken him around the world and back again. Beating the streets on nearly every continent, he and his band Mofro have sewn a continuous thread of laying-it-on-the-line shows that move folks to dance and at times to tears. “Impassioned singing, riff-based Southern rock, cold-blooded swamp funk and sly Memphis soul.” -The New York Times
Since his recording debut in 1989, Osborne has written virtually all of his own material and contributed memorable songs to a wide variety of artists. Two tunes co-written by Osborne appear on Keb Mo’s Grammy-winning 1999 release Slow Down. Country superstar Tim McGraw scored a #1 hit with Anders’ song “Watch The Wind Blow By.” He can also be seen performing in a recent episode of HBO’s New Orleans-based drama Treme. Osborne’s music ranges from muddy backwater blues to upbeat country rock, and fills in many of the gaps in between. “He’s a songwriter [with] astonishing range, and his vocals are expressive and pitch-perfect.” – NPR Music http://www.andersosborne.com
