Jamie McLean Band
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. It was no secret before then, going back to those lucky witnesses who heard him belt "Johnny B. Goode" onstage at age 5 while sitting in with his father's band. Throughout his life, Broussard has been tapped as a talent to watch.
Marc’s song “Home” was successful at radio and catapulted him onto the national touring stage. His music has been placed in many TV shows and movies. The timeless, soulful nature of Marc’s vocal lends well to Film and TV, and will continue to do so for years to come.
Marc released a follow up to his S.O.S. album on 9/30/16. It is a soul covers album appropriately titled “S.O.S. 2”. He donated 50% of the profits to City of Refuge. The live performance video of the acoustic version of “Cry to Me” has garnered over 1,000,000 views on youtube.
Marc’s next record “Easy to Love” comes out on 9/15/17 and the lead single off the album “Don’t Be Afraid to Call Me” is being released on 7/14 with a feature on Rolling Stone Country.
Jamie McLean Band, opening the show, is a triple threat. As a guitarist for New Orleans royalty Aaron Neville and Dirty Dozen Brass Band he's toured the globe playing fiery guitar everywhere from Madison Square Garden to Japan’s Fuji Rock. His blue eyed southern soul vocals ooze raw emotion and his top line songwriting chops tie everything together. With hundreds of original compositions to his name McLean creates a musical gumbo that incorporates New Orleans soul, Delta blues, middle America roots and New York City swagger.
