Ronnie Baker Brooks
FitzGerald's Presents New Year's Eve with Ronnie Baker Brooks. Sponsored by Firestone Walker Brewing Company.
Doors open at 8 pm. Plus we'll have party favors and a champagne toast at midnight.
RONNIE BAKER BROOKS: This young Chicago guitar slinger not only sings with soulful fire and play with a white-hot intensity; he's also carrying the torch from the previous generation of soul and blues greats and moving the music into the future. "I grew up among the best of the best," Brooks says. "Every time I play, I feel like I've got to do it with the authenticity and passion that I saw in guys like Buddy Guy, Muddy Waters, B.B. King and my father. But I also have to put my twist on it. None of those guys repeated what came before them."
