What’s up, Madtown? Let us explain why you should be on the Terrace this Friday. Charlie Brooks and The Way It Is will be performing an entire show, starting at 9:30 and in order to appreciate their R&B and soul music, you must be present.
Charlie Brooks and The Way It Is have certainly made an impression on every crowd they have performed for. Their classy dress and comedic banter with the crowd add to their already stellar R&B music. Even more impressive are the bands that they have opened and played with through the years, including Sly & The Family Stone, The Temptations, and even Ray Charles.
When they start playing their Motown sound songs such as classics “Brick House” and “Mustang Sally,” all that a person can do is get up and start dancing. Charlie Brooks’ voice is also not completely overpowering, meaning we can also enjoy the soul coming from the other members, which include Steve Skaggs, Joe Wickam, Dave Goblin, Nathan Merone K, Eric Koppa, Darren Sterud, and Mike Bowman.
So this Friday, come feel the soul in you as Charlie Brooks and The Way It Is takes over the Terrace stage. Check out their take on “Brick House” below.
