5 Things You Didn't Know About The Record Company

See Them Sept. 23rd at the Capital Brewery

August 22, 2017

Every one here at Triple M is super excited about The Record Company coming to town in September for the Capital Brewery Block Party!

Here are some things you may not have known about the band that gave us some amazing raw bluesy tunes, including "Rita Mae Young" and "Off The Ground."

1. Lead singer Chris Vos grew up on a farm in Burlington WI. His family was quite musical--he recalls listening to his grandpa's Hank Williams cassettes while out on the tractor.

2. Before getting into music full time, Chris worked for a moving company that only employed musicians. It was called "Real Rock and Roll Movers." Apparently anybody who regularly moves and packs Marshall half-stacks can be trusted to move your couch.

3. Chris and bass player Alex Stiff met via a Craigslist ad and bonded over a love of old blues records, particularly Hooker and Heat (featuring John Lee Hooker and Canned Heat),.

4. The band has a shared admiration for The Grateful Dead and had a cover of "New Speedway Boogie" included in a 2013 Dead Covers Project.

5. Chris's first concert was The Oak Ridge Boys at the Elkhorn County Fair when he was in kindergarten. He thinks it's because he really liked their song "Elvira." Do you think we could get the guys to sing it at the Capital Brewery?
