Get ready for one of BIG ARTS most memorable shows: The Music of Sam Cooke. Bradd Marquis and a band of incomparable musicians take us back to enjoy again one of America’s most iconic and talented performers. This rip-roaring performance, brought to you alongside a live big band, tells the story of how Sam Cooke became the most important Soul singer in history. Bradd Marquis, a multi-talented entertainer (singer, actor, writer, and producer) brings the legend and his catalog of iconic hits to life. Bradd utilizes his soulful tenor to captivate and inspire audiences from the very first note he belts out. Hailing from a time in music when crooners like Marvin Gaye and Donny Hathaway monopolized the airwaves, this gifted vocalist, who is often compared to these legends, has homed in on their sounds and given life to today’s music. As a result, Bradd has graced sold-out stages all over the country, performing his signature classic tribute to Soul icon Sam Cooke.
