R&B Crooner Bobby Brooks Wilson Performs at the Suncoast Showroom on May 1 and 3

R&B Crooner Bobby Brooks Wilson Performs at the Suncoast Showroom on May 1 and 3

R&B and soul singer Bobby Brooks Wilson will entertain the audience at the Suncoast Showroom on May 1 and 3.

Wilson first made waves in the entertainment community for his remarkable impression of legendary Jackie Wilson – later to find out that the man he emulated onstage was actually his father. Wilson got his start in a talent show performing the James Ingram classic, “Just Once,” and became a regular at karaoke bars. After an impressive performance of the Motown classic “My Girl,” Peter Hernandez of Peter and the Love Notes approached Wilson and invited him to perform with the Hernandez family, including Hernandez’s son, pop icon Bruno Mars.

During a Hernandez family performance, 1960’s rocker Paul Revere of Paul Revere and the Raiders recognized Wilson’s talents and likeness as similar to those of Jackie Wilson, and later recommended him to perform as Jackie Wilson in an impersonator show in Las Vegas.

As his profile for impersonation grew, more and more industry professionals recognized him as a dead ringer for Jackie Wilson, down to his signature laugh; a blood test later confirmed they were father and son.

Today, Wilson performs impressions besides Wilson, including Sam Cooke, Stevie Wonder and Little Richard. His album “It’s About Time” was released in 2012 and includes soulful covers of Jackie Wilson’s “I Get the Sweetest Feeling” and Otis Redding’s “I’ve been Loving You Too Long,” among others.

Showtime each evening is 7:30 p.m. Tickets are available from $15.95, plus tax and fees, and can be purchased at any Boyd Gaming box office by calling 702-284-7777, or by visiting www.suncoastcasino.com.
