CHICAGO HOTTEST ACT, THE REAL DEAL
BLUES GUITAR SLINGER BALANCES HIS
LEGACY WITH HIS DRIVE TO INNOVATE
THE MUSIC TO THE NEXT CENTURY

Back to Blues Heaven here...

For the 3rd time Chicago’s crown prince (after Buddy Guy) will be playing at the festival in Frederikshavn, where he will close down the programme on Friday, Nov, 3rd, and that is by no means a coincidence, for as the rumour goes in the US, Ronnie is called ‘the closer’, simply because no other band wishes to play after this musical tour de force.
Like his late father, one of the last blues legends, Lonnie Brooks, Ronnie plays blues from sweet home Chicago. Ronnie has found his inspiration in the 90’ies, and his music is highly electric. Ronnie is described as a singer with far greater qualities than most other soul singers, a fine blues interpreter, and a monster on his guitar, with lots of technique and passion. These qualities have led to engagements as a guitarist with the likes of Eric Clapton, B.B. King, Buddy Guy, and Koko Taylor. Only at the age of 32 did he step out of others’ shadow and went solo with his own band.
The latest album, ‘Times Have Changed’ was highly acclaimed by critics and already now aspires to be nominated Best Blues Album 2017 in the US.
With his flashing smile, charming appearance, and fantastic music, Ronnie BB is definitely a ‘must’ at the festival.
