J.C. Brooks & The Uptown Sound, George Smallwood

Please note: This event has already occurred.
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. Joining Brooks and his band, the Uptown Sound, at Tropicalia are the Grits N Gravy DJs and Washington’s own hidden treasure of classic soul, George Smallwood.
