Blues Legend in La Porte Tonight

(La Porte, IN) - Wayne Baker Brooks grew up and performed with several Blues legends, played in front of an audience of 47,000 at the MLB All-Star Game, and now he's playing in La Porte this evening as part of LakeFest.


He’s the son of another Blues legend, Lonnie Brooks, and has connections to other big names like B.B. King and Muddy Waters. In a recent interview, Brooks said, “A lot of these people I had the pleasure to tour with through my dad and everything and got to learn some stuff as well." 


Brooks, 51, grew up in Chicago, where he developed the unique Chicago Blues sound as a musical specialty. He’s going to be at Fox Park tonight as part of Lakefest. The free concert is scheduled to begin at 9 P.M.
