LA blues rockers The Record Company return to Minneapolis in support of their new album Play Loud. Tickets to their show at The Varsity Theater remain available. Details can be found HERE.
There was a time when the club scene was dominated by blues bands of every stripe. In many respects, this surge in popularity was a direct result of The British Invasion of the 60s and 70s. Much of what Americans viewed as rock and roll was simply a retelling of an American genre filtered through an English lens. Like Muddy Waters said: “The blues had a baby. And they named it rock and roll.”
If there is a current American touring band that delivers this style better than The Record Company, I’ll eat my hat. This is what happens when three, multi instrumental musicians decide to let rip. Pre Covid, the band blew away a sold out a Mainroom crowd on the back of some regular radio airplay. Expect much of the same at The Varsity.
Bottom line, if you’re more enamored by live performances than studio chops, this is a show you don’t want to miss.
Opening for The Record Company is JJ Wilde. The Canadian guitar rocker was recently nominated for a Juno Award in the Best Rock Album category.
