Songwriter extraordinaire David Egan is fighting the good fight against the Big C right now. In a show of unity for the man behind so many great songs, one of his current bands, the swamp pop super group Lil' Band O' Gold, decided to perform the Sept. 19 Downtown Alive! concert in David's honor.

And man was it a show that spilled over the usual 8:30 end time and into the night.

More than two dozen musicians from Egan's present and past showed up for what turned into a star-studded celebration of a true Louisiana artist: C.C. Adcock, Steve Riley, Jon Cleary, Pat Breaux, Dave Ranson, Clarence "Jockey" Etienne, John Troutman, Tommy McLain, Paul "Lil' Buck" Sinegal, Sonny Landreth, Roddie Romero, Miki Honeycutt, Buddy Flett, John Howe, Jo-El Sonnier, Nathan Williams, Ward Lormand, Bruce MacDonald, Michael Juan Nunez, Mike Sipos, Derek Huston, Caleb Elliott and Chris Belleau.

Get well soon, David!
