JC Brooks Band
JC Brooks Band
This is the release party for the new EP Red Black & Blue recorded in Chicago during some serious political turmoil! Red Black & Blue is an EP about the evergreen frustration of being gaslit by someone whose only slick enough to trick themselves but not you. The single Anywhere But America is a breakup letter to someone who talks a good game but treats you like shit when it counts the most and then still has the nerve to expect unwavering gratitude.




But with all the trouble JC Brooks Band does not ever forget to bring the post punk soul party and tonight will be one rocking ball! Look for their new EP Red Black & Blue – To be released April 13th 2018.

“Enveloping stage presence and palpable charisma.” – Rolling Stone

“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
