JC Brooks makes soul-infused dance music that is energetic and kinetically charged. Their soul mashup version of Wilco’s “I’m Trying to Break Your Heart” was a nationwide jam released by Bloodshot Records as JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound. After two critically acclaimed albums they have dropped “the Uptown Sound” from the name, but continue with the post punk funky soul force and have become a powerful live touring band. JC Brooks has made a career out of delivering the goods, from club stages to the biggest festivals in US and Europe.
Erupting with raw emotion, JC unleashes his soulful shouts and heart wrenching falsetto over the relentless rhythm of guitarist Evan Pinter, drummer Kevin Marks, bassist Evan Levine, keyboardist Jeremy Tromberg and percussionist extraordinaire, JoVia Armstrong. JC Brooks and his band are a force to be reckoned with.

“JC Brooks looks and performs like a cross between Chuck Berry and H.R. of Bad Brains in their primes, but his skintight R&B and post-punk soul upend expectations of a retro act.”– Washington Post
