Europe: part V

JC Brooks & The Uptown Sound

After a quiet winter and spring, and a few warm up shows to get things rolling again, the Uptown Machine is ready to roll and we’re going big for Summer.  DoDivision and the Double Door were tons of fun, and now it’s time to get on a plane and show Europe what’s up.  JCBUS will be playing the Cognac Blues Passions Festival on July 4th, then making a quick run into Holland for our Dutch premiere at Conincx Pop Fest in Elsloo, NL.

For those keeping tabs at home, here’s our international touring check-off list; 8 down, only 187 more countries to go!

Europe 2013

19 09 2013

Can’t believe that we’ll be touring Europe in less than one month.  After touring Spain and Italy in 2010 and 2011, we stayed Stateside in 2012 (in our defense, we did tour the States 3 times that year, that’s a lot of driving), but now we’re making up for it, since we had three incredible shows in France in May of this year.

Making our UK and Belgium debuts (London, Oxford, Leuven, Antwerp), returning to France (making our Paris debut), and finally making it back to Spain, an incredible country that has been so good to this band.

Check the dates, and please tell your European friends and family:

Not making it to Amsterdam yet, or returning to Barcelona, Valencia, or Vitoria-Gasteiz (Helldorado!) but absolutely thrilled to play Paris (we just had a day off there last time).  And then we have to hustle back to prep for November’s JCBUS/Escort co-headline tour!


A Little Uptown In Your Mailbox

12 09 2011

We’ve gotten in the habit of sending out postcards from the far-flung places we travel on tour, and the upcoming European extravaganza will be no different. So if you want the postman to put you a little Uptown love in your mailbox, just do one of the following:

  1. Comment on your favorite entry on our blog
  2. Comment on one of our YouTube videos
  3. Sign up on the mailing list on our website

Then send your name and postal address to the email listed on our blog. The first 10 people to respond will get a picture postcard from somewhere amidst our travels through Spain and Italy. Simple, no?
