Featured Artist: Royal Honey
By Emmy Susani
Royal Honey brings together some of the best talent and experience in the rust belt region. The band has only been together since 2018, but its members go way back in the local steel city scene, having played renowned clubs like The Decade, Graffiti, The Electric Banana, 31st Street Pub, and Someplace Else regularly. They’ve also all played up and down the major east coast cities, prior to forming Royal Honey.
These guys have been around the block a bunch of times. Coming from previous bands including The Dirty Charms, The Ultimatics, The Cheats, The Addicts, Lize, The Science Fiction Idols, The Cosmosonics, Child of Fire, Kill Bossa, Rainstation Zero and Gas Tiger, they’ve got the experience and pedigree to write great catchy songs and put on killer energetic shows!
The band has a solid classic rock vibe, comparable to Faster Pussycat and Thin Lizzy. You can tell these guys have played together for years; they’re so solid in studio and live. It’s a chemistry you get from playing together for so long. They’ve shared the stage with bands such as Kix, Faster Pussycat, and Y&T to name a few.
If you haven’t checked out their record “Sweet Heat” you’re missing out on a banger of a classic rock record. Don’t sleep on these guys.
