Opening Act: Drew Angus
Doors and Dinner: 6:00 pm | Show: 7:30 pm
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.
A promising young voice in songwriting, Drew Angus is just the kind of new blood that makes pop music so enduring. With indelible hooks, and savvy craftsmanship, and city informed lyrics, he brings a certain verve to his work that has resonated with audiences and fellow performers alike. His work ethic and effortless appeal have led him down some pretty amazing paths. He has appeared on Saturday Night Live with Jimmy Fallon, he was a finalist on the Farewell Season of American Idol, has had the opportunity to share the stage with Nile Rogers, Harry Styles, Will Evans (Barefoot Truth), and Anders Osborne, and is a 2017 USA Songwriting Contest finalist with his song “Brother.”
Drew’s debut EP Hold onto Something, recorded in Brooklyn, NY, produced by Harper James, and mastered by Sterling Sounds’ Joe LaPorta is out now on Spotify and iTunes. Huffpost says, “...you’ll find yourself hypnotized by the amazing vocals, instrumentals and the feel good vibe of the EP.”
