Cream City Soundcheck, filmed and produced by docUWM, features live footage of bands both local and national, filmed at Milwaukee’s many gorgeous venues.

The launch party is September 13 (mark your calendar), but for today, TCD is debuting a brand new episode featuring Milwaukee’s Kings Go Forth.

Kings Go Forth have been cranking out their brand of classic grooved-out soul since their inception in 2009. After a handful of singles and numerous memorable live shows, the ten-piece band released their debut full length, The Outsiders are Back, on David Byrne’s Luaka Bop label in 2010.

This episode features the band’s most recent Turner Hall Ballroom performance, and goes behind the scenes with group founder/bassist Andy Noble and percussionist Cecelio Negron Jr.

Previous episodes of Cream City Soundcheck have featured hometown favorites Trapper Schoepp & The Shades, and Park The Van Records artists Generationals, and can be found at creamcitysoundcheck.com.
