    Harry Connick, Jr. wined and dined a full house Saturday night at the Louisville Palace. The sold out show was attended by those of all ages and was extremely energetic. Crooning from behind the piano and stopping occasionally to play trumpet, Connick danced all over the stage, interacting with both the band and audience.
    Between songs he even tossed out donuts from Amazin Glazin in Elizabethtown, Ky. Festive and upbeat, the house ate it up. And the man was funny. Teasing the packed crowd, he confessed, “It’s a little scary here I’m not gonna lie. It feels a little like Satan’s basement.” Connick in all his scruffy glory no doubt raised the temperature of the Palace significantly.
    Mostly performing covers of older tunes, including a mix of authentic New Orleans music, Connick surprisingly only selected a couple of songs from his newest album. He closed the two hour show with “Come By Me,” leaving fans yearning for more.
    As the curtain came up for his encore, he started in with his charming wit; entertaining the audience by pretending to keel over. At a lucky fan’s request, he signed a poster of his much younger self and engaged in a debate about the proper pronunciation of the word pecan (its pee-kahn). Shaking his rear end, Connick brought the house down with a rendition of “Go to the Mardi Gras,” both of which received a standing ovation.
