Behringer-Crawford museum kicks off its summer concert series tonight, announces rest of season


The dynamic Ramona Blaine brings The Company for a Bodacious Beginning to the Music@BCM summer concert series tonight from 7-9 p.m. Doors open at 6 p.m.

With their signature, high-voltage, dance party sound and 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. This is high-energy 1960s, 70s, 80s, and 90s music at its very best.

Founded 10 years ago by Blaine and keyboarder 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.

This year’s concert series is dedicated in memory and honor of our friend and BCM Trustee, Gary Johnston who passed away unexpectedly this year.
