The Family Business
Hailing from Madison, WI, the The Family Business has garnered recognition both locally and beyond. In addition to securing opening slots for Rival Sons, Blues Traveler, J Roddy Walston and the Business, Cracker, SIMO, Black Stone Cherry, and Greta Van Fleet, the band has won a number of Madison Area Music Awards (MAMAs) and secured multiple nominations Wisconsin Area Music Industry Awards (WAMIs). The band’s most recent release, 2015's Balls Pricey, brings the heavy guitar riffage of the 60s and 70s back into the 21st century. Says Rick Tvedt or Local Sounds Magazine, “They strip away all the excess of classic rock, polish it up – but not too much – and then unleash it to audiences that may not have heard such raw power in some time.” "This is the way that great rock and roll and great blues should always sound," adds Lou Lombardi of Blues Rock Review.
