Muddy Waters, Jimmy Reed—these are just a couple of the blues bands that the Record Company's Chris Vos, Alex Stiff and Marc Cazorla site as influences. "We carry a lot of the blues in our music; but we've got too much respect for the genre to lump ourselves into it. We're more similar to an early rock 'n' roll band," Vos says. The Record Company's sound is raw, definitely bluesy and reminiscent of some of the best acts of the '50s and '60s—like if John Lee Hooker and the Stooges had a well-behaved love child. The Los Feliz–based band has only been playing together since late 2011, but they've already been on tour with the Whigs, snagged a sponsorship from Lucky Brand, and were the headliners at one very fun West Hollywood rooftop shindig. Their month-long residency at the Satellite begins November 5th: They'll play every Monday of the month, accompanied by some of LA's finest up-and-coming bands, such as Dustbowl Revival and the Peach Kings. Also on tap: DJs, drink specials and food trucks. Not bad for a Monday night.
