Under 21 With Guardian THE COOKE BOOK is a celebration of Sam Cooke's innovative, but too brief career that blazed the trail for Aretha Franklin, Curtis Mayfield, Marvin Gaye, Rod Stewart, Smokey Robinson, and many other icons of Soul Music. From his Gospel roots to international Pop sensation, including his remarkable Jazz and Blues interpretations from his legendary appearance at The Copacabana, Darrian, the show's creator, 'Brings It On Home'. With invigorated and expanded arrangements, kept stylistically true to the era, Ford is joined on stage by a stellar and comic band of musicians and singers to revitalize Cooke's enduring legacy as an unmatched music. THE COOKE BOOK is not a musical, it's not a concert, it's a razor-sharp entertainment experience in the grand tradition of the great Vegas showrooms! Darrian has toured and wowed audiences in THE COOKE BOOK-The Music of Sam Cooke since it's 2011. Since then, he is single handedly initiating a whole new generation of Sam Cooke fans! Ford's scorching vocals send you searching for your soul.
