About Us

In early 2011, Ramona Blaine and Paul Kindt ended a long stint with another local band. With the good things that they learned from that experience, they decided to put together a project of their own. 

The Company (affectionately nicknamed "tCo") was born.

Eight amazing years later, with a talented lineup featuring Ramona Blaine (vocals), BJ Brown (keys/vocals), Bobby Eads (guitar/vocals) Carleton Tolliver (bass/vocals), Iva Durand (keys/vocals), Phil Tipton (drums), and Joe Fink (sound engineer), it's still the goal of The Company to cover nothing but the best dance music of the last 40 years. The song list ranges from Chaka Khan and Michael Jackson to Maroon 5 and Bruno Mars, from Stevie Wonder and Midnight Star to Black Eyed Peas and Charlie Puth. 

Regular performers at Jeff Ruby's Carlo & Johnny, Jeff Ruby's Steakhouse, Belterra Park Gaming and Entertainment, Miami Valley Gaming, and a few other classy venues around town, the band has been honored "Hall of Fame" status after receiving FIVE consecutive "Best of Weddings" picks from The Knot. 

Whether they're at a steakhouse or a stadium, The Company is a band that makes Cincinnati dance.
