Terrance Simien said :Our deepest condolences to the entire Baker family. Ronnie Baker and Wayne Baker . Got a serious heavy heart and I'm taking inventory of all my memories. I got a lot of em. We shared the stage many times over the years & were on the #MillerBeer Genuine Draft Band Network together. His wisdom as my elder and his leadership as band leader inspired me. We used to play this venue in Chicago called Blues, Etc. and when he wasn't performing himself, he'd come see the band, saying how he "wanted to support his Louisiana brothers". RIP . You will be missed by many.
