Ronnie Baker Brooks

It would be easy to make cracks about brooks running deep and true, etc., etc., but there's blues music to be played. Ronnie Baker Brooks, son of bluesman Lonnie Brooks and brother of Wayne Baker Brooks, has inherited the family traits: flying fingers and the ability to take ownership of a blues song. Ronnie has just a tinge of R&B in his approach, giving his ditties a swing that makes them feel like even more of a party. He's sharing a bill with Big Head Todd.

Why go: </b>Because you've got a right to sing the blues.
<br><br><b>
Reconsider:</b> Ronnie isn't Lonnie.
