    About Cardis: Cardis started playing bass at age 6.  Being taught the basics by his dad, he never had any formal bass lessons.  He started taking piano lessons with Mr. Kenny Alderman at age 8, and takes what he learns on piano and applies it to bass.  Cardis likes funk, rock and blues, and is a big fan of Tower of Power, Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles, and ZZ Top.

     About Steve:  Steve has been playing drums since around the age of 3.  He's played in numerous bands over the years, but his greatest joy is sharing the stage with his kids.  Steve likes more of the southern-rock and country style of music.  Steve says,   "God truly gave me the ultimate blessing of being able to play music with my kids".  

     About the name:  When Landry was younger (before Cardis could hold a guitar), he would play shows with his dad and his friends.  They would call that band "Landry & Company".  Not knowing that Cardis would eventually be playing and they would have the true LANDRY & COMPANY!  With Cardis now playing, the band was complete.  With mom (Paula) working the merch booth, and dad and the boys playing in the band, traveling with Landry & Company has become the family business. 

     About the MUSIC:  Landry & Company's musical roots derive from many genres.  Growing up in Louisiana, the boys were influenced heavily by blues, country, and classic rock.  Dad, Steve, played in many country and classic rock bands when the boys were younger.  Their uncle, Randy Lambert, was a locally known blues guitarist.  After being introduced to the Texas music scene, the band found their own original sound, fans, and friends.
