Biography

Family Groove Company is an unsigned American four piece band based out of Chicago, Illinois. FGC tours heavily and as of June 2006, they have played in 28 states totaling over 400 shows.

Family Groove Company (FGC) started out in January of 2001 when Adam Lewis (guitar) and Jordan Wilkow (keyboards) met Janis Wallin (bass) and Mattias Blanck (drums) while studying music at the Musician’s Institute in Los Angeles, California. It wasn’t long before they recorded their first demo recording and began performing throughout Southern California. The band began touring quite a bit throughout the Western U.S. with regular appearances in San Diego, San Francisco, and Portland, Oregon. In Spring 2002, the band released their 10-track debut album, Reachin’.

With the number of markets available to the band limited by the vast expanse of the West, in the fall of 2002, FGC made the decision to relocate to Chicago, Illinois. Since then, the band has pursued an aggressive touring schedule that has included headlining performances, “opening band” exposure opportunities, and high profile appearances at festivals like Summerfest, the 10,000 Lakes Festival, and Summer Camp.

After playing almost 400 more shows and adding over 50 songs to their playlists since their first release, FGC released their second studio album, The Charmer, on April 25, 2006.
