The band's sound takes cues from Memphis and Muscle Shoals--between the lazy rolling of the river and the steady chugging of a southbound train. The feel lives between Chicago and Detroit--lively city streets and the pumping of factory machinery.
The hustle and bustle is music. A sound that moves people. A feeling that creates community and speaks to people. A rhythm that sways hearts and shakes asses--true Soul Music.
Brooke & the Nice Things are too young to be old school; however, their influences undoubtedly reflect the Golden Era of Rhythm and Blues.
