I saw this from NolaFunk NYC, sharing a post from NPR. I think he is awesome, very Jimi Hendrix-ish. I saw him for the first time at Jazzfest years ago, I should say I noticed him then because I had definitely seen him with Dr. John and possibly other times before then. this Jazzfest show was his own band, and then that night with Skerik and a bunch of other people at Howlin Wolf. When announced someone asked who saw Renard's smokin hot set at the fest that day and I was the only one to "whoo". It WAS at 11:30am after all. Renard looked at me and said "now that's love". Too bad for the rest of the people who missed out!
Here's the link to the NPR post.
