“My pick for blues this weekend is The Ronnie Baker Brooks Band at Clearwater Theater in West Dundee, IL. Ronnie is a brilliant guitar player and a soulful singer.”
"When hip-hop just come along, my friends used to laugh at me for listening to Howlin' Wolf," he (Ronnie Baker Brooks) says, referring to the Chicago blues legend. "They'd say, 'What are you listening to? You're not an old man.' I'd say, 'You don't have to be an old man to listen to the blues.'"
“This year, the festival is bigger than ever, with an expanded day of music on Wednesday. Wednesday's headline performer is Ronnie Baker Brooks, an electric blues talent who packed the park when he performed at the festival in 2003. ”
“The 25th edition of the Chicago Blues Festival will celebrate the city’s hometown artists during tonight’s slate of shows at the Petrillo Music Shell.”
