    Hailing from Salt Lake City, Utah, Royal Bliss has been making their mark for years with a consistent work ethic of writing, recording, and touring that have helped build the success of the band.  Their wide variety of influences from Johnny Cash to Led Zeppelin, and everything in between, has helped to mold a sound that is uniquely theirs that cannot be denied.  Their “Heartland Rock” speaks to the common man, tells a story and rocks out with a good party crowd, all the while being delivered by the inimitable deep and raspy voice of front man, Neal Middleton and the scorching sounds of seasoned musicians Dwayne Crawford (Bass), Jake Smith (Drums), Taylor Richards (Guitar) and Sean “Memphis” Hennesy (guitar/banjo), who combine to make Royal Bliss.  Their journey is evolving and they are growing as a band that now seems to be making their way down a road pointing eastbound on I-40, all the way from Salt Lake City to Nashville, TN.

    Royal Bliss started in a basement as kids who had a passion for music and a drive to succeed.  Over the years their music has evolved from what would echo a late night frat party to now what they call “Heartland Rock”, a musical cocktail that mixes lyrical themes that celebrate American life, dreams and love, all the while paying homage to their southern and classic rock roots.

    However, being a band for eighteen years has afforded them quite a story to tell with many twists and turns. They have weathered major label rock record deals, broken down buses, band member changes, weddings, kids, opened up a bar in Salt Lake City, called “The Royal” of course, and survived a devastatingly life threatening 35 foot fall off a building by lead singer, Neal Middleton.  Middleton was told he might not make it through the night, and if he did, that he would be paralyzed, but Middleton was not about to give up.  With a “mind over body” mindset, as he describes it, he fought his way back to the band, and together they continued on the colorful journey that is Royal Bliss.

    They began as a rock ‘n’ roll band achieving early success with their music on several rock radio stations.  In 2009 their Capitol Records debut "Life In-Between" charted on the Billboard top 200 and was #1 in Billboard Heatseekers.  In 2012 their self-released "Waiting Out The Storm" reached #9 on the iTunes Rock Chart and hit #2 in Billboard Heatseekers.  Then again in 2014, "Chasing The Sun" was recorded and released on their own label, Air Castle Records, with distribution through Universal INgrooves Music Group.  On their latest album the alternative roots of the band shine on the album’s single "Cry Sister” that climbed the Active Rock chart to (#31) and was Royal Bliss’ 6th Single to crack the top 50 on Active Rock radio.  In addition, they have toured with acts such as Buckcherry, Candlebox, Chevelle, Kid Rock, and Papa Roach, and have grown into seasoned and dynamic live performers with a solid fan base across the country.

    In Life we must expect the unexpected, go into the unknown head on, and have the strength and determination to keep moving forward" - ETU

    Engage the Unseen or ETU started in the winter of 2012 in Billings, MT. The band worked tirelessly on perfecting their songs and performance skills. Once they believed they had enough solid material to enter the studio. Engage The Unseen began working with Matt Ryan, Formally of the Billings Band “The Farthest Edge” on their first 7 song EP “Just Shut up and Listen”. In April of 2015 the Ep was released to much local praise along with some national praise.

A video for "Rise" caught the Attention of the WestFall Recording Company in Long Island, NY.Anthony Lopardo and Ray Marte sought to bring the band to New York to Record a full length album among other services that would help the band progress to the professional level they wanted to achieve.

 ETU has gone through a few lineup changes in their short time, but now have the strongest foundation to build upon.

    It’s been 20 years since Everclear released their 1997 multiplatinum smash So Much For The Afterglow, yet the album remains a beloved fan favorite, and continues to inspire new generations of musicians & fans today. Bolstered by the record’s enduring popularity, Everclear are about to embark on a highly anticipated tour celebrating its milestone anniversary, with plans to perform the album front to back, including some tracks the band has never played live.
    As the band’s third full-length, So Much For The Afterglow built upon the momentum of 1995’s Sparkle And Fade, with a slew of unforgettable songs that permeated MTV and alternative rock radio. The album—which remains Everclear’s best-selling release to date—quickly won over listeners with its trademark combination of melody, rhythmic energy, evocative lyrics and thundering guitar crunch.
    “It makes me feel really good when I read a lot of what people still think about the album, and how many bands have been influenced by it—how much impact it had on them—and I think about how much impact it had on me, in a different way of course,” says singer-guitarist Art Alexakis. “It’s still a thing; it’s still relevant and real 20 years later.”
    Formed by Alexakis in 1991 in Portland, Oregon, Everclear has enjoyed a lengthy career spanning 10 studio releases, numerous videos, thousands of shows and accolades that include a 1998 Grammy nomination for Best Rock Instrumental, for the Afterglow track “El Distorto de Melodica.” Like a true survivor, Alexakis has soldiered on through multiple lineup changes over the years: During the Afterglow era, the band also included Craig Montoya on bass and Greg Eklund on drums; the forthcoming anniversary tour features current Everclear members Davey French (guitar), Freddy Herrera (bass) and drummer Jake Margolis. In recent years Alexakis also created and runs the annual Summerland Tour, which features a package of popular ’90s alt rock bands.
    Amid all of Everclear’s accomplishments, the Afterglow period remains a pivotal moment. After enjoying a taste of success with Sparkle And Fade and its still-prevalent hit single “Santa Monica,” Everclear returned to the studio in 1996 more determined than ever to perfect their sound. By the end of the year the band had already completed an album, tentatively titled Pure White Evil, but after one particularly blunt conversation with an A&R executive, the singer/guitarist/songwriter Alexakis knew there was more work still ahead.
    “He told me, ‘It’s an ok record, but it’s not going to do what you want it to do, and it’s not the best record you can make’,” Alexakis recalls. “He said that, and I just knew he was

  • The Two Tracks
    Saturday, May 20, 2017
    Pub Station (2502 First Avenue North, Billings, MT 59101)
    General Admission/21+
    Doors at 8PM / Show at 9PM
    $13 Advance/Day of Show
    Tickets on sale Friday, March 24th at 10AM
    Ticket price includes base Ticketfly service charge. Additional fees may apply depending on purchase method.
     

    Formed in 2014, The Two Tracks are based out of Sheridan, Wyoming, at the foot of the Bighorn Mountains.   From rock’n roll to country, from bluegrass to folk, the music is expertly crafted, addictive Americana. Their harmony rich songs are often cello-infused with a high energy groove.  Throw in life on the high plains and a penchant for lost love story telling. 

    The group's first album (self-titled) was voted #1 Album in Wyoming by Wy- NPR.  It features original tracks by Julie Szewc on guitar/vocals. Joining her are David Huebner on cello, electric guitar, and vocals, Fred Serna on drums/percussion, and Russell Smith on upright bass.  Guests on the album include legendary Nashville pedal steel guitarist Bruce Bouton (Garth Brooks).

    "Their eponymous debut album finds them creating an instant connection... the sprightly, spunky “Old Victrola,” the good natured “Bird’s Eye View” and the lively take on the traditional standard “Wayfaring Stranger” finds them accelerating the energy...in truth there’s not a single offering here that doesn’t engage the listener practically from the get go." - No Depression

    They have spent many a day on the road since the debut album release in Spring 2016, and were recently back in the studio to record their second album with producer Will Kimbrough at The Butcher Shoppe studio in Nashville. Look for the new album Spring 2017! 

    "The Two Tracks record rural warmth... infusing their tunes with a feel for the open spaces of The West.” - The Alternate Root

    Ever since winning the 2014 Telluride Bluegrass Festival Band Competition, Trout Steak Revival has quickly become the quintessential Colorado string band. The band won an Emmy Award for a soundtrack they contributed to a Rocky Mountain PBS.  They have collaborated with school children in mentoring programs in both Denver and the mountain communities.  Their music is featured on Bank of Colorado’s radio and television advertisements. Most recently, Westword named them Denver’s Best Bluegrass Band and they were nominated as a Momentum Band of the Year by the International Bluegrass Music Association.

    Defined more by expressive songwriting and heartfelt harmonies rather than any one genre, Trout Steak Revival crosses over and blends the bounds of folk, indie, bluegrass, and roots evoking its own style of Americana.  With five band members all contributing unique lyrics, lead vocals, acoustic instrumentation, and harmonies, Trout Steak Revival delivers memorable tunes to an energetic fanbase that grows hand-in-hand with the band.
