Event

JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound Live at Hotel Foster
JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound will make their first trip back to Milwaukee since playing to a frenzied crowd of 6000+ at Jazz in the Park in 2012!  Catch them into the intimate confines on the East Side at Hotel Foster

Born in the great melting pot of Chicagoʼs Uptown neighborhood in 2007, guitarist Billy Bungeroth, drummer Kevin Marks, and bassist Ben Taylor (Beat Down Sound/September Sessions soundtrack) joined forces with the Lowdown Horns to lay a ferocious foundation for the soulful shouts of Mr. JC Brooks. The son of a Jersey funk diva set adrift by the disco era, heʼs renowned for his take-no-prisoners stage style, giving you no other option than to get up and move!

JCBUS has always maintained the work ethic of never just 'giving a concert' but putting
on a full-on extravaganza packed with theatricality, tons of heart, and buckets of sweatthey can't help it: Guitarist Billy Bungeroth directs at the famed Second City theater, while Brooks has received accolades as an actor for his performances in "Ragtime," and most recently, the Chicago production of the Tony-award winning musical, "Passing Strange" (where his band mates also served as the on-stage house band).

Wilco's Jeff Tweedy befriended the group after they scored a viral hit with their amped-up reimagining of his song "I Am Trying To Break Your Heart," performing it with them at Chicago's Park West and inviting them to appear at Wilco's Solid Sound Festival alongside heavy hitters like Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore and the Band's Levon Helm.
