“Parmalee” ~ Doors Open at 7 PM (“21 & Over” Show)
From this tiny town that’s home to a gas station, two blinking yellow lights, and a small tin- roofed barn dubbed Studio B, Country rockers “Parmalee” launched their long journey to Nashville. The near-fatal robbery Parmalee experienced after a show would have destroyed most Bands. But brothers Matt and Scott Thomas, cousin Barry Knox and longtime friend Josh McSwain didn’t call it quits. Instead it reinforced their intense motivation and dedication to one another and to their determination to succeed. Each obstacle that delayed “Parmalee’s” arrival to Nashville was an extra mile that allowed the groundbreaking sounds of artists like Jason Aldean and Eric Church to pave the way for the worlds of Country Radio and “Parmalee’s” brand of Country Music to meet at the perfect crossroad.

“Gunnar & the Grizzly Boys”~10pm
As American as apple pie, Gunnar & The Grizzly Boys make country music by nature, not by design. Their songs travel straight from the northern pines and fruit orchards of Michigan to your radio speakers and local honky-tonks. The honest storytelling instantly grabs your attention while the music hits you in the gut like a double shot of whiskey. The energy of a live Grizzly Boys show explodes into the audience like an electrifying dose of adrenalin.
Gunnar Nybald, who still farms the family apple and plum orchards he’s been working all his life, writes the band’s songs from the seat of a tractor. While attending Michigan State University for an agricultural degree, Gunnar teamed up with hometown pal and bass player, Rob Mason (Kent City, MI); guitar slinger, Shane Grehan (Alpena, MI); guitarist/keyboardist, Chris Newberg (Rockford, MI); and drummer Joe Connolly (Rochester Hills, MI). That grisly group naturally became Gunnar & The Grizzly Boys.
“Royal Bliss” ~ 8pm
It has been nearly 16 years of bliss, Royal Bliss that is. Royal Bliss is modern rock with equal parts beauty and tragedy. The new album Chasing The Sun, out February 18th 2014, is a bold statement for Royal Bliss. Peaking at #5 on the iTunes rock charts and already getting rave reviews, “This album makes me weak in the knees. Chasing The Sun is quite simply a stunner – a beautifully crafted, heart-ripping, chest-thumping, ass-kicking stack of rock – classic rock, hard rock, modern rock, all of that good stuff. The entire album is rippling with amazing vocals, brawny riffs, killer drums, and lyrics that cut right through the pre-fab bullshit and into some serious heart-and-soul territory.” –HardRockNights.com
The band amps it up on their latest single “Cry Sister”. Currently climbing the active rock charts (#31) and impacting radio with #1 requests. This is Royal Bliss’ 6th Single to crack the top 50 on Active Rock radio since 2008.
Hailing from Salt Lake City, Royal Bliss started in a basement as a few kids who had a passion for music and a drive to succeed. Striving to further their own abilities while building their fan base at the same time was always the ultimate goal. The music has been a message to those who listened, evolving every step of the way. From the early days when the lyrics echoed that of a late night frat party, to the deep, meaningful, and sometimes cries for help, the process of evolution is undeniable.
