IN-STUDIO GUEST: Chicago Bluesman WAYNE BAKER BROOKS
WAYNE BAKER BROOKS (the youngest son of the late blues icon LONNIE BROOKS) will talk about his 20-plus year solo career and his blues legacy as the son of Lonnie; along with POTUS, songwriting, and his mission to keep the blues alive while helping the genre to evolve.
Brooks and his band perform Friday, August 17 @
Theatre At The Center in Munster. This program also features plenty of Wayne's music from over the years, including the region radio debut of his new single.
WAYNE BAKER BROOKS is considered one of today's top blues guitarists who's signature style combines powerful vocals with liquid fire guitar playing that honors his rich blues heritage yet effortlessly expands the boundaries of the genre.
Born and raised in Chicago, IL amongst the most prolific blues legends and blues masters in the world, Brook's blues roots may run as deep and wide as the Great Lakes themselves.
