With all the information passing between people on the internet, I suppose it’s no wonder an amazing band could form via Craigslist – yet, it still comes as a bit of a surprise that JC Brooks and the Uptown Sound came together this way. It’s like hearing the perfect couple met on a dating web site. It’s both startling and modern – two words that describe JC Brooks and the Uptown Sound to a T. Wanting to sound like “Otis Redding fronting The Stooges,” the band combines funk, soul, rock and a touch of stardust to get your body moving. Following the release of this year’s Howl, the Chicago-based group stopped by KEXP for an energetic live performance, which you can see here:
