I know their bio says JC Brooks and the Uptown Sound call Chicago, that city by the lake, home, but the band certainly seems to call St. Louis their second city.
With the close proximity of the two NL Central cities, the group has won over music fans here in the Gateway City with their entertaining, upbeat soul style revue shows that have audiences dancing and shaking what they've got to the groove.
This Saturday, at Off Broadway, the band will mark their fourth trip through town in the last nine months; their second at the South side nightspot. Touring to support their latest album Want More (Bloodshot Records, 2011), the band continues to gain exposure in music circles. If you don't see them in a venue like this soon, you might regret it one of these days.
To save you the humiliation of never seeing the band in a club atmosphere, we are offering a pair of tickets to Saturday night's show to one lucky contestant. In case you need to check your calendar, here are the details: - Doors open at 7:30 p.m. Show at 8:00 p.m. Company of Thieves and St. Louis based Sleepy Kitty provide the music leading up the headliner.
Here’s how to win the tickets: If you’re on Twitter just easily tweet the following:
“I entered to win tickets to see JC Brooks and the Uptown Sound from @3minrecord retweet and you could too!”
or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
or leave a comment on our Facebook page.
The contest runs from now until the deadline of 3:00 p.m. today, March 9, 2012. At that time we will randomly pick the winner via our scientific ACME Random Number Generator™ machine and send an e-mail/DM/Facebook comment to the lucky winner. Good luck folks!
