He cocked his head over to the right, squinted out at the crowd and then in a singing voice that echoed the distant sound of legendary swamp rocker, John Fogerty, and a touch of the soulful Nashua-born blues singer, Ray La Montagne, as well, he kick-started his playset with a pounding song that had every eye in the room glued to him.
