Archive for the ‘JC Brooks and the Uptown Sound’ tag

Alright Seattle…enough of us giving you good music from good artists internationally that you can’t physically reach out and touch as soon as possible. One of the most forward reaching yet retro-leaning bands around right now are playing El Corazon in Seattle on 3/30 and if hearing rock with a swing is definitively your thing, then this show is not to be missed.

The Chicago-based band known as JC Brooks and the Uptown Sound, marry a style of music that is part Sam and Dave, part Albert King and part whatever else your eardrums tell you it is. They’re on Bloodshot Records which should tell you plenty right there as that label doesn’t sign acts lightly. And they’ve got a new record out called Want More that’s tighter than gnat booty. Take the time to listen to the new single (which kicks ass) and peep this video for evidence of what they will be like this upcoming Friday.
