Music this year is going to be off the charts starting with Saturday night’s headliner, The Record Company which headlines at 8 p.m. Saturday, April 7. This band had a GRAMMY-nominated debut album, “Give It Back To You” on Concord Records. The album’s ten songs were conceived, recorded and mixed by the band in the bassist’s living room in Los Angeles. By June 2017, the trio had scored a nationwide #1 Triple-A radio hit, and landed the opening slot on John Mayer’s solo tour.
