Marc Brousssard

Wednesday, January 7, at House of Blues

In 2002, Marc Broussard gave up on the Christian-rock circuit for a solo career that sizzles like a bayou barbecue, where sinners jam and the saints keep a keen eye out for the law.

The son of legendary Boogie Kings guitarist Ted Broussard, the Carencro, Louisiana, native creates a version of swampland funk that's good-natured enough for the collegiate jam scene but greasier than that scene might expect. The textbook covers on 2007's S.O.S. Save Our Soul may have been rote, but they functioned as a necessary warmup to 2008's Keep Coming Back, a solid modern-country soul party record, with chunky brass, grinding rhythms and Broussard's confident purr and growl. He's not an R&B rule-breaker, but he knows how to work conventions with generous, blue-eyed soul.
