Bringing some Soul to Brooklyn Bowl

Funky soul group JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound is coming to the Brooklyn Bowl Friday, August 17. JC Brooks has been noted by the New York Times as “Neo-soul Glory”, and the Chicago Tribune claimed that “The Uptown Sound is the real deal.”

Taking the stage with raw emotion and uncontainable energy, the Uptown Sound labeled themselves as Post-Punk soul and that they are. Added with a touch of R&B, this band creates a “lively set of gritty old-school soul and funk injected with raw garage-rock aggression”, as said by KEXP.

Accompanying JC Brooks & The Uptown Sound will be The Revelations Ft. Tre Williams, Mingo Fishtrap, DJ Jack Dutone (Brooklyn Soul Club).

Fri 9/14 Royal Southern Brotherhood

As said in their most popular song "Gotta Keep Rockin'", the Royal Southern Brotherhood keeps on rockin'. 

The southern rock group comprised of Mike Zito, Devon Allman, Cyril Neville, and Yonrico Scott  began jamming in saloon bars from Mississippi all the way to Maryland and will now be in the Big Apple on Saturday September 14, 2012.

The combination of having the talents of an Allman and a Neville in this band wows the crowd before the music even starts. After that first hit of the guitar string you know you are in for a special night of authentic southern rock.

The Royal Southern Brotherhood were nominated for the "Best Blues Rock" award by the Blues Music Foundation and won the 2010's Blues Music Award. Summer Jazzfest 2012

The 2nd annual Summer Jazzfest, featuring Rebirth Brass Band with Brother Joscephus & The Love Revival Revolution Orchestra was a great success. The July 13th event taken place at the Beekman Beer Garden Beach Club was filled with grooving fans and music lovers.

Here are some fan photos taken from the show!

Bonerama with Mingro Fishtrap & Monophonics

Saturday, June 23

Combining sounds of vintage funk, classic rock, and improvision, Bonerama takes the classic New Orleans brass funk music and makes it its own breed of sound. Bonerama has been recognized by Rolling Stone Magazine as, “the ultimate in brass balls” (Rolling Stone, 2005). They have also been noted for, “crushing ensemble riffing, human-feedback shrieks and wah-wah growls” (Rolling Stone, 2007).

 Also performing this evening, Mingo Fishtrap, holds different musical characteristics. As noted by David Lynch of the Austin Chronicle, Mingo Fishtrap is, “Tight n’ punchy horns, deep rhythms, restless melodies, and emotive singing had garnered Mingo justified respect as a live powerhouse.”

Mingo hones in on soul, R&B, and funk music to get the crowds dancing for hours. Their influence include Motown, Sly and the Family Stone, and Otis Redding.

 Psychedelic soul and heavy funk band, Monophonics, consider themselces a sub-genre of soul music with mixes of soul and psychedelic rock. Staking their claim in the Bay Area of San Francisco, the Monophonics have toured all around California up to Motown and down to Louisiana and now making their way to the Big Apple.
