JACKIE WILSON, PERFORMED BY BOBBY BROOKS WILSON
Friday, January 5th 8:00pm
$14.00 Residents • $20.00 Non-Residents
Watching Bobby Brooks Wilson, a truly dynamic entertainer, is a sheer delight. His creative and highly energetic performance is magnificent as he glides easily through his five-octave range. When he hits the stage, not only will he entertain you, he’ll also carry on the legacy of his father, the late Jackie Wilson. Two decades, countless performances and an album later, Bobby wants to think of his voice as a more raw approach to the traditional clean-cut Motown sound. It lies somewhere between the raspy tones of James Brown and the rich croons of his father. Ask him about his vocals, however, and he’ll say otherwise. “I don’t think I sound like him at all.” “I just do me!” Jackie Wilson’s shadow will always linger over him onstage. “If they see him, I hope they enjoy him. If they see me, I hope they enjoy me." Overall, Bobby's performance is a wildly impressive show for any Jackie Wilson fan!
