Must See Show: JC Brooks & The Uptown Sound @ El CorazonMarch 29, 2012 @ 11:35 pm
Are you bored? Is it hard for you to find joy in your life? Have you found that your couch is the only thing that keeps you company at night? Does hearing the word 'infomercial' have you stop in your tracks and make you want to cry? If you answered yes to any or all of these questions, please take note.
Chicago soul music makers JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound are just the thing that are gonna get you out of the house and twisting and turning all night long. The group have been on the scene for several years touring all around the U.S., and for such a young band, JCBUS has already sewn up some sweet gigs—they’ve collaborated with blues and soul legend Syl Johnson, and as the go to party band in Chicago, the group was tapped to play Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s inaugural party in Grant Park in May 2011. Jeff Tweedy befriended the group after they scored a viral hit with their amped-up reimagining of his song 'I Am Trying To Break Your Heart,' performing it with them at Chicago’s Park West and inviting them to appear at Wilco’s Solid Sound Festival alongside heavy hitters like Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore and the Band’s Levon Helm.
JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound have a new record out now called Want More and are playing El Corazon Friday, March 30th. Check this show out of you know what's good for ya.
