Experimental rock group Kendall Street Company, are gearing up to perform at Stanley's Pub on Saturday, August 5th!

 The band just announced the 9/22 release date for their new studio album Seperation95,’ and shared the album's first single, a reharmonization of the Grateful Dead’s “Eyes of the World" (inspired by the use of sign language to "translate" songs).

A genre-fluid ensemble known for their dynamic live performances, Kendall Street Company blend the songwriting prowess of John Prine, the experimental psychedelia of Pink Floyd, the progressive jazz-infused rock of Frank Zappa, and the epic jams of Umphrey's McGee. With off-the-cuff comedic bits, haphazard choreography, and surprise musical guests, each Kendall Street Company concert is a unique and unforgettable experience. The band's prolific songwriting abilities have led them to release over 100 original songs across multiple albums and EPs in just six years, and their live shows feature unreleased tracks, improvisation, and diverse covers ranging from The Grateful Dead to Alanis Morissette.

Formed by five students at the University of Virginia, Kendall Street Company quickly gained recognition in the music scene, performing at festivals like Lockn', Summer Camp, and Floydfest, sharing the stage with bands like Umphrey's McGee and Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, and collaborating with artists like Keller Williams and Ron Holloway. Inspired by late-night bonfires at Kendall Street Beach on the Chesapeake Bay, the band embodies the spirit of good company, igniting their performances with fiery jams and captivating conversation. Like their take on “Eyes of the World,” their upcoming full-length was inspired by the idea of alternative storytelling. "How can we tell the same story without telling the same story. What different gestures can we invoke."
