Louisiana-born Marc Broussard incorporates funk, blues and R&B into his soulful pop sound, while always staying true to his Southern and musical roots. Known for his own unique brand of Bayou soul, the singer is also a fiery performer, imbuing his tunes with enough passion and energy to “make a river jump its banks!” From laid back renditions of his classic “Home” to the newer “Only Everything,” this buoyant charmer never fails to make fans feel right at home with the easy-going vibe of his intimate live shows.
Tickets: $35, $45, $65
Saturday, Jan. 31, 7-11 p.m., Yokouchi Pavilion/A&B Amphitheater/Schaefer Gallery
