JC Brooks & The Uptown Sound

Chicago-based band; JC Brooks & The Uptown Sound have just cut a deal with Bloodshot Records.

For a few years now, JC Brooks & The Uptown Sound have been scorching clubs all over this town and we got tired of people telling us "You HAVE to sign these guys." So, we got in the BS corporate jet and flew Uptown and woo-ed them with bottles of Osco's house champagne and inked the deal. We hope you come along with us in our love of the Uptown sound. You will sweat.

Look for their BS debut "Want More" in October. [Bloodshot Records]

They've announced a short string of June-July dates, including an opening slot for Robert Plant & the Band of Joy, and a performance at Chicago's Taste of Randolph Festival.
