Main Stage

JC Brooks & The Uptown Sound prove that a little soul can go a long way and putting a new spin on a landmark Wilco song will get a few more people talking.

But there's more going on with JC Brooks & The Uptown Sound than just the Wilco connection; there's a heart that want to wrap up everyone with its rhythm and sound. It's an infectious sound that thrives on the moment and setting up a mood where the senses get happily lost; it's a concept that either comes off genuinely or as an act.

Having left stages in a hot sweat for over five years, the group is riding a wave created by its second album Want More (Bloodshot Records). The group's homecoming at Metro will only reaffirm what some fans already know--JC Brooks & The Uptown Sound is Chicago's new bright star.

JC Brooks & The Uptown Sound perform at Metro on April 27th.
