Marc Broussard kicks off NPAC season

Marc Broussard

Marc Broussard can channel the spirits of R&B, rock and soul classics into more contemporary terms.

Audiences began to realize this more than a decade ago when Broussard released his debut album, “Momentary Setback,” which he recorded and released independently at just 20 years old.

But many already knew this young man had talent when they heard him belt out “Johnny B. Goode” onstage at age 5 while sitting in with his father's band. 

Throughout his life, Broussard — the son of Ted Broussard, acclaimed Louisiana Hall of Fame guitarist and former member of The Boogie Kings — has been tapped as a talent to watch. 

Raised in Carencro and Lafayette, La., Broussard first found success with his song “Home,” which catapulted him onto the national touring stage.

Broussard will take the stage at Niswonger Performing Arts Center in Greeneville on Friday, Sept. 20. Show time is 7:30 p.m.

Tickets are $35 for orchestra and mezzanine seating, and $25 for balcony seats.

Because the timeless, soulful nature of Broussard’s vocals lend well to film and TV, his music has been used on both the small and silver screens.

Broussard recently inked a deal with Vanguard Records and will spend much of this fall writing and recording, with plans for an album release date early next year, followed by an extensive touring schedule.

To order tickets to Broussard’s performance at NPAC, call the box office at (423) 638-1679 or email boxoffice@npacgreeneville.com.
