After a COVID-enforced break from live entertainment, the Culver Hotel has a full program of music returning to the historic building. The Family Company will be performing this Saturday, Sept. 3, and then again on Saturday, Sept. 10, so Josh Teitelbaum spoke with the News about what they’re all about.

When did you start writing and performing, and when did it get serious? When did this band form? 

January of 2018 was our first show, and it was a tribute to the late Bill Withers’ Live at Carnegie Hall Show in 1972.

Describe your sound…

While the idea of Family Company is far bigger than any one individual or even cluster of individuals, the band’s inception was a result of the coming together of Josh Teitelbaum, Alex Kyhn, and Jason Goldstein.  Accompanied by a diverse cast of artists, Family Company celebrates the rich history of soul and blues music with additional inspiration from Americana, folk, funk, and roots traditions. Having backed various artists as a rhythm section, along with putting on ambitious tribute shows to Bill Withers, Donny Hathaway, Ray Charles and most recently Stevie Wonder, Family Company strives to provide both foundational and  creative elements to a wide range of musical situations, while bringing people together with the power of music.

What are your career highlights so far…

Bill Withers joining us on stage at the Peppermint Club in L.A.

Do you have any recorded music available? 

Yes, on Spotify.

Have you performed at the Culver Hotel before?

Never!

What else do you have coming up? 

Lots of new releases coming soon!
