JC Brooks makes soul-infused, genre-bending music that is energetic and kinetically charged. The grab-the-listener-at-all-costs mashup manifesto has been captured to a T on the band’s new joint, The Neon Jungle, which is set for an April 7, 2017 release via Rock Ridge Music. Their soul mashup version of Wilco’s “I’m Trying to Break Your Heart” was a nationwide jam released by Bloodshot Records as JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound, but with the new album The Neon Jungle, they have dropped “the Uptown Sound” but continue as one powerful live band. Brooks himself describes The Neon Jungle as an album-length depiction of “one crazy, incredible night out.” JC Brooks has made a career out of delivering the goods, from club stages to the biggest festivals in US and Europe. The live version of the The Neon Jungle will be flowing from a stage near you.
Bison's Big Bang
Bison's Big Bang
Led by saxophonist Brian Blaker, Bison's Big Bang is a band consisting of members from other local Philly staples (Swift Technique, iLL Doots, Killiam Shakespeare, etc.). Each performance is its own unique experience as the band places a heavy emphasis on each member's individuality in improvisation, composition and arranging. This culminates in a melting pot of influences drawing from jazz, rock, hip-hop and funk. The band saw their first LP release in "Pure Imagination" in 2015 and are excited to use it as a stepping stone to launch off from in the future.
