An artist-in-the-round performance series featuring JJ Grey, Marc Broussard, Anders Osborne, and Luther Dickinson, Southern Soul Assembly debuted last spring to rave reviews. Hailed as a “perfect night” (Blogcritics) filled with “a mutual appreciation from the fans and artists alike” (Southern Manners), the show takes audiences on a musical and storytelling journey complete with “soaring moments, heartfelt laughs and lots of toe tapping” (Twangville). The result: “sheer dynamite” (Examiner.com). Grey, Broussard, Osborne and Dickinson, all highly seasoned artists and band leaders, have no doubt demonstrated a natural ability to contribute to each other’s music through harmonies and guitar. Southern Soul Assembly draws from the rich legacy of American Southern culture of each of the players. “Just like food in the South, our music is greasier than most,” says Marc Broussard, “the beat is on the backside, generally, because it gets too hot for people to move too quickly.”
