The Royal Bliss Tom Petty Tribute Experience

Neal Middleton – Lead Vocal, Guitar. Taylor Richards – Guitars, Vocals. Jake Smith – Drums, Percussion. Brian Hennesy – Bass, Vocals. Since their formation, Royal Bliss has been a powerful force in rock music. After thriving as an independent band, signing with Capitol Records, starting an exciting new partnership with Kartel, and seeing two of their latest singles hit the Top 20 Active Rock charts, the band known for persevering & surviving is more than ready for wherever this next chapter will take them.   After the abrupt shock the pandemic brought for the self-confessed “road warriors”, Royal Bliss spent the past year reflecting on the last few decades together as a band and how, despite all of the odds stacked against them, they survived. Surviving is a theme that flickers throughout Royal Bliss’ new music; one of their latest singles “Fire Within,” is a powerful rally cry for anyone who needs the inspiration to rise above every setback in one’s path. At its core, the track is for anyone who feels pressured to conform. “Over the last year especially, so much has been brought to light —women’s rights, LGBTQ+, systemic racism. It’s about embracing our differences but knowing we all deserve to be treated equally.”   After they released their Capitol Records debut record “Life In-Between,” there isn’t much Royal Bliss hasn’t already accomplished —from signing with a major label in 2009, garnering over 100 million streams and 175,000+ monthly listeners on Spotify, charting on the Billboard Top 20 & hitting #1 in Billboard Heatseekers, touring with the likes of Kid Rock, Chevelle to Lynyrd Skynyrd, and having 10 singles break the top 50 on Active Rock radio. A band that prides themselves on their storytelling and ability to deftly blend classic rock with modern rock elements, Royal Bliss is a one-of-a-kind rock band and has the feverish fan following to prove it.   As the band prepares to release new music through the upcoming year, Royal Bliss’ biggest aim is to bring people together. “We hope it unites people from all walks of life, wherever they live and hope they can connect to the songs,” Neal says. “More than anything, this music is about rising above and knowing that when we’re together, everything will be fine.”    The New album(Title and release date TBA) is set for fall 2022 with multiple song releases and up coming tours to support and promote it. 

Puddle of Mudd

Puddle of Mudd rise from the ashes with their sixth studio album in nearly a decade, entitled Welcome to Galvania. Formed in 1991, Puddle of Mudd has sold over seven million albums and has had a string of number-one singles, including the hits “Blurry,” “She Hates Me,” and “Famous.” The new album, Welcome to Galvania, was produced by Cameron Webb (Alkaline Trio, Disturbed, Motorhead). It also marks the band’s first full-length album since Volume 4: Songs in the Key of Love and Hate in 2009.  “This album has been a long time coming. I’m just so happy to finally get it out there for my fans,” says Puddle of Mudd’s frontman, Wes Scantlin. “I hope the new music inspires my fans to live their lives. I’m just trying to crawl under people’s skin and help them through their life musically.”  Scantlin has provided Puddle of Mudd with lead vocals and rhythm guitar since the band’s inception. The origins of the band’s name came from the Missouri River flooding, damaging their rehearsal space.  Puddle of Mudd released their first major album, Come Clean, on August 28, 2001, which spawned the singles “Control” and “Blurry.” These hits propelled Puddle of Mudd to reach the No. 5 slot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. This success led to the band venturing out on a full-scale European and American tour, hitting the road with Linkin Park, Stone Temple Pilots, and Staind. Come Clean reached triple platinum status in January of 2003.  The subsequent album, Life on Display, was released in 2003 and reached gold status. They went on to release Famous in 2007. In 2009, they released Vol. 4: Songs in the Key of Love and Hate. In 2011, the band released an album of cover songs, entitled Re:(disc)overed.  Now, Puddle of Mudd is ready to return to the rock scene with their sixth studio album, Welcome to Galvania. Inking a deal with Pavement Entertainment, their new material is primed to reach longtime and new fans. “Sometimes in life you come across people who want to bring you down and rip apart your soul. Well, those days are gone,” says Scantlin.  “I have surrounded myself with a great team of people.  They believe in me and I believe in them. I’d like to thank each and every one of them for their hard work and perseverance. I’d also like to thank all of my fans for their patience. This is just the beginning. I have a lot more rock ‘n’ roll in me to share with the world!” VIP Ticket Includes:- Access to the VIP Lounge open from 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm- Private performance before the show from local acoustic artist- Catered Appetizers courtesy of The Relish Tray- 2 Complimentary Drinks- Seating closest to the stage
