JC Brooks & The Uptown Sound draws its nostalgic style from the Chicago soul scene of the 1970s, but marries it with classic rock, underground punk and that decade's burgeoning hip-hop sound. The band's latest album is Want More, and it performed songs from this record in a rollicking performance at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia.
