"I've always wanted to perform in the junior high gym," Brookshire told The Brazil Times via e-mail.
On June 6, the 1988 Northview High School graduate will get his chance.
"When I found out you could rent it, I said, 'well, here is my chance,'" he said.
Brookshire has organized "Rock For Brazil," which will take place at the junior high school gymnasium, from 2-10 p.m., Saturday, June 6.
Recently, he started thinking about coming back to Brazil to organize the event. He got on Facebook and began looking for others who would be interested.
And many expressed interest.
According to his Facebook page, Brookshire said "Rock For Brazil" will "showcase musicians from a small town in Clay County."
The page continues by stating, "The town of Brazil has had a menagerie of musicians come from its core. At one time, Meridian Street had six different drummers on it just blocks away from each other, not to mention two bass players, a great singer/songwriter and a guy that was even put on MTV. This concert will hope to bring these great musicians together and put a little excitement back home. Rock for Brazil."
Brookshire told The Brazil Times some of these musicians got together several years ago during the holiday season and played.
"I grew up playing at my mom's house in Brazil, playing to all my friends during what was called, 'Mama Ann's Christmas' jam," Brookshire said. "That went on for 10 years straight on Christmas Day. We would invite all our friends to attend with spirits and carols."
Since then, however, Brookshire admitted it has been difficult to get people together to play music.
"Whenever I talk to my friends from Brazil, we would always talk about getting together to play, but it would never happen," he said. "Lack of a plan for most reasons."
Since starting the planning for "Rock For Brazil," Brookshire has confirmed some musical acts that will perform.
On the bill so far for the June 6 gig are Ida Mae Sheriff, Kings of Rhythm (pending one member), Swag (possible), Juggernut (possible), the Spazmodics, The Blackbirds and others.
Brookshire added a rock drum circle may take place, but it has not been confirmed yet.
He added other people involved in the project right now include Bob Spelbring, Aaron Spelbring, Doug Paullus, Kevin Jackson and Robbie Rothrock.
The event was originally scheduled for May 30, but moved because of graduation dates.
