The crowd filled slowly, but Broussard didn’t seem to mind -- his set was energetic, soulful and dynamic, powerful enough that by the end of his nine-song set, the Beachland was packed and every single person there realized that this man was the real deal.
Broussard’s voice sounds like he borrowed it from Stevie Wonder, and his songs feature such emotion that you have to wonder if his girlfriend breaks up with him before he takes the stage each night.
Broussard talked between songs little, but when he did, he made references to alligators and turtles, and by the time Broussard ended his set with what he introduced as a “Southern Louisiana Groove,” the Beachland felt more like Mardi Gras than an east-side Cleveland nightclub.
