Event Details

Next Stage Arts Project is delighted to present a special edition of [FRAMED], featuring both an original film and live concert featuring a concert with Danny Brooks & Lil Miss Debi with special guest Lou Erlanger at Next Stage on Thursday, September 27, 2018 at 7:00 pm.

This special event features the film Hard Working Man (2017), a documentary by Christopher Darton of the life of Danny Brooks as a working musician — writing songs, recording, out on the road, meeting people — as well as the effect on those who touch his life. It includes live concert footage of his duo and full band in Canada and Texas, and also covers Brooks’ past — his growing up in Toronto, his musical trajectory, his battle with addiction and his relationship with his wife and musical partner Debi. At its core the film is about survival — determination — faith and the celebration of a creative life in music.

Danny Brooks has long been referred to as ‘The Real Deal’ and after years of honing his writing and performing skills in Canada, picking up nominations and awards along the way, Brooks is at home in the Texas music scene and traveling throughout the USA. Mixing Southern Soul, Americana, Blues and Gospel, he is recognized as a prolific writer and dynamic live performer, and is constantly on the road. Making Llano Texas his home (just west of Austin), ‘Texassippi Soul Man’ Brooks’ music features the duo he has with his wife Lil Miss Debi who sings and plays cajon/percussion while he plays assorted guitars/slide/cigar-box/stomp-board and harp-rack.

“Listening to Danny Brooks is like driving out of Memphis, TN on a sunny Saturday morning into the Mississippi Delta listening to WDIA. It’s one of those things where time stands still. A dash of Eddie Hinton, Solomon Burke, Rev. James Cleveland and Howlin’ Wolf are all ingredients in Danny’s soulful musical stew” — Greg Martin, Kentucky Headhunters
