Calvin Brooks – My Favorite Thing
Music standing the test of time,the recording started in Detroit, has now spread across the world. Jazzy vocals, instrumentals, beautiful love songs. Music with a meaning, haunting melodies, feel good music for everyone. Especially the title song My Favorite Thing featuring Hari Paris was often played at radio stations around Chicago.
Calvin’s love of music and his undeniable talent garnered him a “gig” with Martha Reeves and the Vandellas of Motown fame. For fifteen years he toured the world and shared the stage with the premiere entertainers of the 1970’, 80’s and 90’s fine tuning his vocal skills and becoming a virtuoso on the guitar.
Calvin’s influences are many, however Wes Montgomery, Grant Green and George Benson top the list. In 2003 Jeff Popp met Calvin Brooks and after finding they had similar experiences and a unwavering love of music they became an impressive duo. Showcasing their vocal and instrumental skills they cover the sounds of Motown as well as the jazz standards to great reviews.
A devoted family man, Calvin decided to “come off the road” and in 1999 he along with his wife Cheryl and their sons relocated to Las Vegas. He has become a mainstay on the “Strip” ever since. Calvin along with Jeff Popp can be seen Sunday through Wednesday nights from 5:30pm – 10:30pm at the Range Steakhouse Lounge inside Harrah’s Hotel Casino. Their reviews have been excellent.
My Favorite Thing is now available at CDBaby.
