Coco Montoya and Ronnie Baker Brooks
Between his white-hot guitar playing and his soulful, emotional vocals, Coco Montoya has talent to burn. In a career that spans almost four decades, he’s gone from drumming for blues icon Albert Collins to holding the lead guitar spot in John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers to leading his own band and touring worldwide. Years of constant touring, playing unforgettable shows at clubs, concert halls and festivals, have earned him his position at the top of the contemporary blues world.
Ronnie, son of Texas and Chicago blues legend, Lonnie “Guitar Jr.” Brooks started playing the guitar at six years old. He’s been climbing the blues world’s ladder ever since. After touring with legends such as B.B. King, Buddy Guy and Eric Clapton, he took his father’s advice and has since gone solo.
