Five expat New Orleans funkmeisters have teamed up to blast the December countryside with the genuine raise-the-roof item. In a set that covered essential New Orleans anthems ("Look a Py Py" and "Walking to New Orleans") the NOSC effortlessly absorbed and transcended the contributions of John Popper, Mickey Raphael, Taylor Hicks, and Branford Marsalis before igniting an incendiary "Fortunate Son" that featured slashing guitar by Warren Haynes, impassioned sax lines from Branford, sincere harp work from Taylor Hicks. Considered by many to be the hottest set of the night. Warren's curtain speech, "In all seriousness, this is why we have to rebuild New Orleans!"
