    A consummate professional, Jules Broussard emerges uniquely qualified for positive recognition. His career spans over three decades of shared studio and stage with such luminaries as Ray Charles, Boz Scaggs, Van Morrison, Carlos Santana, Earl Grant, Elvin Bishop, Art Garfunkel, and Dr. Hook. Jules Broussard especially enjoys performing live in and around the Bay Area, in which his varied styles, techniques, and ability to play to almost any audience can be heard.
