A little blog about a band

Ok, so I have been a terrible blogger lately and haven't even blogged in 2011 yet!!! In my defense I was waiting on something really cool to happen to blog about. And it finally did.

All last week my hubs had been wanting to go see this band at a local bar. I was SO not feeling it. Busy, hectic week at work with the Auto Expo and sponsoring the Hof Winterfest German festival in Ogden. Both great events and lots of fun but after two days of running back and forth between Ogden and Sandy I was exhausted. The last thing I wanted to do was be up all night at a crowded bar with drunk people. I would've much preferred to stay home in my nice peaceful house in my pajama's on my couch. But this was the first thing hubs has actually WANTED to do since he came to Utah so I sucked it up, fixed my hair, put on something cute and we want. BOY AM I GLAD I DID!!!

We went to see this band called Royal Bliss. If you have never heard of them (like I hadn't) YouTube them NOW!!! I sat in the only chair left open in the whole place and it just so happened to be right next to their guitarist, Taylor. Super nice guy!! He told me a little about the band and we just had some fun conversation until it was their turn to go on stage. I was blown away by their music. And if anyone knows me, you know what a huge role music plays in my life.

Royal Bliss has been together for 13 years and are from right here in Utah. They tour but I'm not exactly sure how far they go. This group of guys is so talented I cannot believe they are still playing bars in Utah and not touring with Nickelback or someone else just as big. There music is definitely alternative but not so hard its nothing but shouting. I have had their one song, Devils and Angels, in my head since that night. Pretty sure it along with many others are going to be appearing on my ipod soon. I sat there through the whole concert just completely immersed in their music. Not only are their songs good, and the men talented (and pretty easy on the eyes) but they definitely know how to keep their crowd engaged. I give this concert a total 10 stars!!

So if you haven't done it by now, go check them out! Seriously, what are you waiting for. YouTube, like them on Facebook or follow them on Twitter @royalbliss. And no, the band did not ask me in any way shape for form for this blog, I did it because I love their music and want to spread the word. I'm already planning on seeing them again on the 28th at Liquid Joe's in SLC for anyone in the local area that wants to see them too!
