Atlanta blues singer
"Weepin" Tommy Brown is more than a legendary blues singer, he is a legendary entertainer - a 'must see' act that can make you dance, sing, laugh, and cry all in one night. From his classic blues recordings of the 1950's, including his 1951 Billboard #1 hit "Weepin & Cryin", which earned him his nickname, to his coveted comedy records of the 1970's, Tommy has been everywhere and done it all. At 83 years old, and after 75+ years in show business, Tommy Brown is still alive and dancing. He is truly one of a kind.
We are very sad to inform friends & fans that Tommy Brown
passed away on 3/12/2016 at the age of 84. A diagnosis of heart disease had
forced Tommy from live performances for nearly two years and he had been in
hospice care for the last several weeks.
Plans for both the funeral and an end of life celebration are in the works and will be posted here as they come available.
Tommy Brown lived a full and amazing life, only some of which is documented here on this web site. We are all blessed to have experienced some of it with him.
