Wedding songs

The Behringer-Crawford Museum launches its summer concert series tonight and announces the rest of the season

Dynamic Ramona Blaine presents The Company for a Bodacious Beginning at 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 from Michael Jackson, Maroon 5, Bruno Mars, Black Eyed Peas and many more. It’s the best of energetic music from the 1960s, 70s, 80s and 90s.

Founded 10 years ago by Blaine and keyboardist and saxophonist Paul Kindt, the band has played many local clubs, hotels and special event venues. They’re a wedding favorite, earning a national spot 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 keyboards and/or vocals, Carleton Tolliver on bass/vocals, and Bobby Eads on guitar/vocals. Together, they form a fresh and funky group that makes you want to dance.

This year’s concert series is dedicated to the memory and honor of our friend and BCM administrator, Gary Johnston, who died suddenly this year.
