JC Brooks & The Uptown Sound's Concert History

JC Brooks is determined to become the next in the long line of classic Chicago soul singers. Sam Cooke, Curtis Mayfield, Syl Johnson - JC has learned from them all, and he's got no illusions about what it takes to become a classic. Armed with The Uptown Sound, one of the most ferocious bands to ever crawl up out of the Windy City, JC's live shows are all-out assaults on the audience, employing everything from raw punk to heart-drenched R&B. Guaranteed to make you dance by any means necessary. JC Brooks is the new sound of Chicago.
