Melding the traditions of vintage R&B and Blues with the aesthetics of classic singer/songwriters, Baltimore singer/guitarist Brooks Long brings the old school into the 21st century in a style all his own. With Ian Trusheim on bass and Dan Samuels on drums, Brooks Long & The Mad Dog No Good’s live shows display the passion, energy and humor rare in today’s music scene. 2012 has been a big year with Brooks being named one of DC/Baltimore’s “Best Emerging Artists” by The Deli Magazine, releasing the EP, Let’s Make Out To Otis Redding in June and playing such festivals as Artscape, Honfest and Baltimore Book Fest. With a full-length album brewing for 2013, Brooks will be bringing his grit-and-wit style to audiences for years to come.
