Terry Brown and the Fire
Saturday 07/08/2017  
Terry Brown is a singer/entertainer that comes to the Roanoke Valley area from Wilmington, DE. Terry studied voice at Delaware State University and musical theater at the University of Delaware. He is currently the lead singer for “The Kings Band,” a featured singer with “Touch of Class Band” and the male lead vocalist for the “Sway Katz Big Band.” He is a student of various genre of music and has shared the stage with some of the finest musicians in the Valley and beyond.

“The Fire” is the result of collective thought and desire...a desire to bring “FIRE” whether it's in a smooth or rhythmic Jazz piece or a driving, Blues piece. Terry Brown says, “It's about the passion and being able to touch the souls of those in the audience.” The Fire is a collaboration by some of the region's most dynamic musicians...each brilliant in their own rite. The Fire consists of Brian Mesko (guitar), Glen Holmes (keyboard), Delmar Parker (drums), and Bob Bowen (bass). The music is an eclectic blend of Jazz, Blues, and R&B. The feel is a combination of nostalgic Vegas and that of a modern Jazz Festival.
