Papa Roach
Over the course of almost two decades California band Papa Roach has released an impressively diverse string of Gold, Platinum and Multi-Platinum records, starting with 2000’s Infest (featuring their breakout single “Last Resort”) through 2009’s top 10 albumMetamorphosis. In that time, Papa Roach has racked up dozens of hits, including “She Loves Me Not,” “Getting Away with Murder,” “Scars,” “…To Be Loved,” “Forever,” “Lifeline” and “Kick in the Teeth.”

In October of 2012 Papa Roach released The Connection, marking the band’s seventh album and first full-length studio record for Eleven Seven Music. The Connection is a remarkably modern record that both solidifies the hard rock group’s signature sound – big choruses, loud guitars, raw introspection – while sonically taking a great leap ahead.

Blues Traveler
Over the course of their illustrious career, Blues Traveler have sold more than 10 million combined units worldwide, played over 2,000 live shows in front of more than 30 million people, and, in “Run-Around,” had the longest-charting radio single in Billboard history, which earned them a Grammy® for Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals. Blues Traveler has released a total of nine studio albums, four of which have gone gold, three platinum and one six-times platinum. Their movie credits include Blues Brothers 2000, Kingpin, Wildflowers and others. A television favorite, they have been featured on Saturday Night Live, Austin City Limits, VH1’s Behind the Music and they hold the record for the most appearances of any artist on The Late Show with David Letterman.

For more than 30 years, Loverboy has been “Working for the Weekend” and on weekends, delighting audiences around the world since forming in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.  With their trademark red leather pants, bandanas, big rock sound and high-energy live shows, Loverboy has sold more than 10 million albums, earning four multi-platinum plaques, including the four-million-selling Get Lucky, and a trio of double-platinum releases in their self-titled 1980 debut, 1983’s Keep It Up and 1985’s Lovin’ Every Minute Of It. Their string of hits, in addition to the anthem “Working for the Weekend,” includes arena rock staples “Lovin’ Every Minute of It,” “This Could Be the Night,” “Hot Girls in Love,” “Heaven In Your Eyes,” “Turn Me Loose,” “When It’s Over” and “Queen of the Broken Hearts.”

Vince Neil
International superstar, accomplished businessman and heartfelt philanthropist Vince Neil came to exemplify all things rock and roll: the sound, the success, the look and the outrageous lifestyle. Vince’s unmistakable voice leads some of the greatest rock songs of this generation including “Shout At The Devil,” “Girls, Girls, Girls,” “Dr. Feelgood,” “Kickstart My Heart,” and “Same Ol Situation.”

In addition to selling 80 million records around the world as the frontman for Mötley Crüe, Vince Neil also began his career as a solo artist in 1993. Neil’s Top 200 Billboard albums, Exposed (which reached number 13 on The Billboard 200 albums chart) and Carved In Stonehave spurred the hits “You’re Invited (But Your Friend Can’t Come),” “Can’t Have Your Cake” and “Sister Of Pain.”  Fifteen years after his last solo album, Vince Neil released Tattoos & Tequila on June 22, 2010, followed by his book of the same title later that fall.  This album is a compilation of genre defining hits that is undoubtedly an updated rock lifestyle staple.  Neil’s refreshed collection of classics consists of nine handpicked, influential covers, as well as two new tracks.

With one loafer in the world of business and a steel toe boot heavily planted in rock n’ roll, Vince Neil is the epitome of a modern rock star living the luxury lifestyle continuing to create current music, writing, giving back through his foundation and expanding his brand based on the complete and enviable standard he has attained.

Adelitas Way
Las Vegas based American hard rock band Adelitas Way broke into the mainstream in 2009 with their first single “Invincible” off their self-titled debut album. In addition to being featured in the video game Smackdown vs. America Raw 2010, the song made numerous TV appearances including CSI Miami, MTV and served as the official theme song for WWE Superstars on WGN America. With other hit songs including “Sick,” “The Collapse,” “Criticize,” and “Alive” Adelitas Way has performed alongside notable artists such as Shinedown, Papa Roach, Chevelle, Three Days Grace, Guns N’ Roses, Theory of a Deadman, Godsmack, Creed, Staind, Puddle of Mudd, Breaking Benjamin and several more.
