Previously known as “The Cumberland Collective,” Good Company has been waking waves across the Southeast and on Music Row in Nashville. Their new production, “Under the Influence of Great American Music,” explores the music that has inspired their individual sound and approach. This outfit exhibits the essence of Nashville’s songwriting sensibility, the joy of youthful rock ’n’ roll passion and the exuberant spirit of gospel-inspired sweet Southern soul. Pass the biscuits, please!

Audiences won’t just watch Good Company, they’ll experience it. This dynamic ensemble will perform well-known songs across genres and decades, by artists such as Willie Nelson, Ray Charles, Otis Redding, Bob Dylan, Bobby Darin, Eagles, Garth Brooks, Paul Simon, Billy Joel, Bill Withers and other favorites. Good Company’s trio of lead singers will also present their own material.

Fronted by founder Mike Willis, and featuring singer-songwriters, Jason Eskridge and Noah Collins, Good Company is backed by a dynamic four-piece rhythm section featuring veteran music-industry performers and songwriters. Performing members have shared stages and recorded with a wide range of well-known artists, including such acts as Lyle Lovett, Marc Broussard, John Mayer, Vince Gill, Ronnie Milsap, Sugarland, and others.

Good Company will be the last of the 2014-15 “Series” Concerts. However, Community Concerts will bring Las Vegas to Rancho Santa Fe, presenting a fifth single concert on May 9, also at the Fellowship Hall. Steve Lippia and his 10-piece jazz band will be performing “Simply Sinatra,” and the very best of the Great American Songbook. This concert is being presented cabaret-style with tables of 10, BYO beverages and picnic-type fare or snacks. Ticket price only $55. Doors will open at 6 p.m., concert at 7 p.m.
