RONNIE BAKER BROOKS
The Brooks family is known for the business of blues. Their patriarch is the legendary Lonnie Brooks, formerly known as Guitar Jr whose two sons Ronnie Baker Brooks and Wayne Baker Brooks are receiving the torch; not just for the family legacy but the blues as a whole. Ronnie Baker Brooks has three successful contemporary blues albums under his belt produced by the legendary Minnesota based Jellybean Johnson, a veteran collaborator for Prince and Janet Jackson. His recent project pairs him with Mud Morganfield, Billy Branch and Erica Brown as a member of the Big Head Blues Club created by Todd Park Mohr who leads the popular Denver based rock band, Big Head Todd and the Monsters. Their album is called Way Down Inside and pays tribute to the late Willie Dixon.
