"The Orange Constant's confident and polished debut album Time to Go is laden with connective riffs and melodious charm. Much of the album evokes a 70's FM AOR vibe, without appearing self conscious"

- Larson Sutton, Relix Magazine

The Orange Constant draws from different styles and musical experiences to create something new and unique. Known for being a songwriting-focused and versatile group, The Orange Constant thrives on creating songs that possess their own inspired character. Each of these songs follow no specific writing format, allowing the band to run with any ideas that bring the music to life. The band's lyrics often include content that reveals personal values and experiences. This allows the band to groove with meaning and depth. Their shows blend original music, reinterpreted covers, and improv.

"They have hit a home run on their first trip to the plate. From the first strains of “Emily” all the way through to the jammed-out coda to “Ask Me to Jump,” Time to Go is a pure delight. You will hear influences throughout the disk, but this is fresh and exciting."

-Scott Hopkins, Music Fest News
Kendall Street Company
Kendall Street Company
From late night jam sessions at the University of Virginia to the main stages at venues throughout the East Coast, the Company has broken out of the college bubble and into a world that loves to groove to a great live show. The band was founded in the early months of 2013 by guitarist/vocalist Louis Smith and saxophonist Andrew Drehoff. The duo had been playing together for some time in the greater Virginia Beach area, joined by a rotation of talented musicians who performed behind Louis as the Louis Smith Band. After moving to Charlottesville in late 2012 to attend the University of Virginia, the pair began putting together a group of student musicians, adding Brian Roy on bass/vocals and Ryan Wood on drums/percussion in early 2013. Since then, the band has added Andrew King on keyboards, Ben Laderberg on the electric guitar, and Jake Vanaman on saxophone.

Kendall Street Company performs regularly along the East Coast, maintaining a central presence around the state of Virginia. While the Company's music is influenced by a variety of musicians and styles, the group has been described as "psychedelic," "alternative," "jammy," "rock," "indie," and "ska." Their recent performance at the 2017 Lockn Music Festival was praised by Relix magazine as having "[raised] the crowd's energy with frontman Louis Smith and guitarist Ben Laderberg's acoustic/electric interplay and lively, technical breakdowns". It is not uncommon for guest performers to join the group on stage for extended jams.
