Sunset Stage Performers

Since 2008 Saving Abel has embodied the definition of “Southern Rock.” Even before their “Self Titled” debut LP, they were barnstorming the country making fans everywhere they went, just by being themselves. Simple, down home, charming, country-boys with immeasurable talent that was destined to take them straight to the top. 

Puddle Of Mudd is an American post- grunge band from Kansas City, Missouri. The band has sold over 7 million albums and has a string of No.1 mainstream rock singles in the US. Their major label debut ‘Come Clean’ has sold over five million copies.

Tobacco Rd Band was formed by Eric Durrance, CMT artist and co-writer of Jake Owens top 10 single “Eight Second Ride”. The four piece Florida hard rocking country band hit the ground running with their first single “Stiff Drink”. 

The Greg Billings Band is a continuation of a phenomenon that began when popular 80’s Florida band Romeo signed to Epic Records and released its first album after a name change to “Stranger”.  Stranger continued to win huge crowds around the southeast with an electrifying stage show and a roster of fun and hook-laden original songs.

Maiden Cane was formed in 2013 as a fusion of two of Southwest Florida’s most prestigious bands.

Fueled by an interest in high energy, arena rock like Boston, Journey, Styx and Bon Jovi, they set out to cover the big monster rock hits.

Diary Of An OZZman. The ultimate Ozzy Osbourne/Black Sabbath era Ozzy tribute band from Florida.  Mr. Ozzman is spot on Ozzy with the look, all the actions, movements, sayings and accent, while his band is made up of top notch musicians.
