While the Congo Square "My Lousiana" Stage has had solid entertainment running all day long, the crowd size has remained relatively small. That is, until legendary New Orleans pianist Henry Butler and his Game Band hopped in with their high-energy act and took things to the next level.

Butler's guitarist (the always-electrifying Vasti Jackson) in particular was clearly having an eye-poppingly good time.

But I found that you could see just as much character if you did a 360-degree sweep of the stage and the audience. Just check out the couple below, dancing, mesmerized by Henry and the Game Band...
