The Music of Sam Cooke Starring Bradd Marquis, William Paterson University's Shea Center for Performing Arts


Friday February 11, 2022
8:00 PM

Sam Cooke, AKA Mr. Soul, pioneer of what we now know as Soul Music. Cooke's influence has spanned over 60 years and touched every individual, directly and or indirectly, in every genre of music from Country to Rock to Pop. His influence can be hidden behind the veil of his music. Still, when you genuinely dissect his life, you'll find that his actual influence lies in his social impact, business acumen, and willingness to blaze a trail for himself and others. When it wasn't socially acceptable to use the same bathrooms as whites, Mr. Cooke owned his own record label, publishing, and artist repertoire. He performed on non-segregated stages while avidly contributing to the civil rights movement.

On January 8, 2022, Marquis started a five-city tour from California to New Jersey, performing this epic show to sold-out crowds of all ages. It culminates Friday, February 11, at William Paterson University's Shea Center for Performing Arts, 300 Pompton Road, Wayne, NJ. Showtime is at 8 pm; tickets are on sale now. As a native of New Jerseyan, Marquis is excited to finally bring this incredible show to his home state.
