Over the course of his career, guitarist/vocalist Lonnie Brooks has come a long way. From his early days backing zydeco pioneer Clifton Chenier to his years as a hit-producing Gulf Coast R&B artist to his emergence as an innovative Chicago bluesman, Lonnie has created an instantly recognizable, signature sound and style. Combining rock ‘n’ roll, Memphis soul, Cajun boogie, country twang and hard Chicago blues, Brooks defies simple classification. His massive voice and blistering guitar playing make every song he performs his own. And as anyone who’s ever seen him in concert can attest, his live performances are legendary for kick-starting a party and spreading a rollicking good time.
