THE COOKE BOOK

The Music of Sam Cooke,
STARRING DARRIAN FORD 

ONE SHOW. TWO SENSATIONS. A Chicago son, like Cooke himself, Darrian performs these timeless and classic melodies to expanded and re-invigorated arrangements that hold stylistically true to the era, while his “… scorching  vocals send you searching for your soul” (The Chicago Tribune). Urban Milwaukee said, “Ford delivered faithfully throughout the night, but with “Change is Gonna Come,” he transcended. The Triangle Theater Review said, “Ford not only turns in remarkable performances, recreating some of Cook’s distinctive mannerisms, but captures the charisma and infectious energy of the celebrated Soul singer pioneer.”


The Cooke Book is not just a concert, and no mere musical revue. It's a polished, razor sharp entertainment experience in the grand tradition of the Vegas showroom. “If Sam Cooke were to be reborn today, he 
couldn’t have found a better vessel for the soul of his music than Darrian Ford.”  —Chicago Splash
