Kendall Street Company
Kendall Street Company is a six-piece rock band based out of Charlottesville,
Virginia. Known for their immensely energetic and unpredictable live
performances, the band’s musical style incorporates elements of jam, folk, jazz,
ska, funk, and psychedelic rock. Fusing genres, they embrace mind-altering riffs
as well as soulful and jazzy wit, while remaining true to their folksy songwriting
roots. The Company evokes an ever-changing kaleidoscope of sound, spinning out
an organic repertoire entirely their own.
The band maintains a central presence on the East Coast having performed over
100 shows in the past calendar year at venues from Fort Lauderdale to New York
City. This includes dates at Lockn’ Music Festival (next to Umphrey’s
Mcgee), Shadefest (Avenue, MD), The Shack Up (Richmond, VA), and a headlining
slots at the Misty Mountain Music Festival and Jam Fish Music Festival. Their set
at Lockn was described by Relix Magazine as “raising the crowd’s energy with
frontman Louis Smith and guitarist Ben Laderberg’s acoustic/electric interplay and
lively, technical breakdowns”.
