I'm Mixed Company's manager/booking contact.
If you were to ask Mixed Company about their sound, you will be answered with a joking and sarcastic response reverberating to the effect of, “A hard rock version of Journey, just not as sappy and with a female vocalist.” In all seriousness, the music is upbeat, uplifting, and is inspired by the simplistic yet definitive writing style of AC/DC with a crossover style of the reckless wild tones of the 80’s not to mention the teenage grunge angst of the 90’s. The most distinctive attribute of the band would be the compelling and raspy vocals. A fan described the vocalist simply as,”…a badass Janis Joplin.” The lyrics are loaded with messages of hope and renewal aimed at a society littered with depleting morals and a false sense of salvation. The words are intended to bring light to the darkened world of Rock-n- Roll.
The band has been recognized by Phantom Records Corporation and NoView Marketing by awarding the members with 2nd place in the “Best of the Midwest” music competition. Their music and lively stage presence has led them to perform at big venues such as Milwaukee’s Summerfest, The Brat Stop as well as the Route 20 Outhouse. Local radio station 91.1FM WGTD, Radio Riff and Kenosha Public Access have also blasted the band's songs to thousands of listeners.
Mixed Company has set their eyes on sharing their music outside the state of Wisconsin. With the ongoing writing and recording of their second EP at Cherry Pit Studios, they wish and hope to be on the road within the year or by early 2016.
