The Company Caps Off Music@BCM August 19
"A funky, award-winning band that makes you want to dance"
The dynamic Ramona Blaine steps up to the Music@BCM mic on Thursday, August 19 as The Company ends another successful summer concert series with their signature, high-voltage, dance party sound.
With their eclectic mix of Motown, R&B, pop, current hits, dance classics, oldies and jazz, The Company has cross-generational appeal, performing songs by Michael Jackson, Maroon 5, Bruno Mars Black Eyed Peas and many others. Founded 10 years ago by Blaine and keyboard and sax player Paul Kindt, the group has played at scores of local clubs, hotels and special event venues. They are a wedding favorite, winning a spot nationally in The Knot's "Best of Weddings" Hall of Fame.
The six-piece band includes Blaine on vocals, Phil Tipton on drums, BJ Brown and Iva Durand Jr. on keyboard and/vocals, Carleton Tolliver on bass/vocals and Bobby Eads on guitar/vocals. Together, they are a funky, fresh band that makes you want to dance.
The family-friendly performance takes place in Behringer-Crawford Museum's outdoor amphitheater at 1600 Montague Road-Devou Park, Covington, KY 41011. The music runs from 7 to 9 p.m. Doors open at 6 p.m. with beers from Bircus Brewing in Ludlow and food available for purchase. Parking is free.
Admission is $5 for adults and free for children ages 3-12. Visitors presenting an EBT card receive reduced admission of $3 for up to four persons. Guests are encouraged to bring folding chairs or blankets for seating. In the event of rain, the music moves inside the museum. Concerts will also be live-streamed on Facebook Live.
Also on Thursday night, the "silentART" portion of the 2021 freshART auction will open at the museum. Guests will be able to view previously completed artwork by dozens of local artists and bid online beginning at 6 p.m. with this link or using QR codes in the galleries. The silentART auction will be open until freshART on September 18.
