Even though it was standard I-IV-V progression, it had something of a swing feel, thanks to the vocal melody being harmonic to the original. And the drums. It seems like I remember the original had almost a zydeco feel to the rhythm. This was a little more rock or country driven, with some swing influence. Definitely an R & B feel to the voice. It's like a bowl of jambalaya. A lot of unique flavors at once. Good job, great timing, great voice control.

I agree with Ron also. Great performance and excellent stage presence. As far as critiquing the vocals themselves it's a bit tough to do from this video as your voice is washed out a little in reverb and background noise. It would be fantastic if you could share with us a clip where we can hear you more clearly. So far as I can tell from the clip you are sounding quite good. :)
