French Quarter Fest Day Three

I have a thing against cover bands, but I gotta hand it to anyone that not only picks "Shooting Star" but also pulls it off. And then seagues seamlessly into a Black Crowes song. The Bucktown All-Stars know their crowd.
Van Broussard was a nice surprise over on the smaller stage. They say he's swamp pop, but it sounds like old school R&B to me. How cool was it having a three piee horn section adding push to every song? My Dad, sitting next to me at 57 years of age, said Broussard's music was before his time. I enjoyed it, though I wish they would have rocked a little more. A lot of medium pace songs.
