Wednesday's local music pick: Downtown Rulers Club at Beauty Bar

When's the last time you saw a soul band play live? Like, a real soul band. Not neo-soul revival, but dudes who sound like the real deal. That's Downtown Rulers Club, a quartet that plays a variety of soul, funk and old-school R&B tunes. The members of this side project include the lead singer of Maneja Beto, a guitarist from Grupo Fantasma and the drummer from What Made Milwaukee Famous. All three are supremely talented bands, and the musicians gel well in this new group. You should check 'em out at some point. They play April 28 at Beauty Bar.
