The Royales are a rhythm & blues band based out of Athens, Ohio, that feature an astounding front man, solid horn section, and booming rhythm section, all culminating in a live show that is supercharged with energy.

Pronounced like the casino, (not the baseball team), the Royales formed in 1995 and have been playing regionally ever since at nightclubs such as Jackie O’s and Casa Nueva in Athens, and dozens of private parties and weddings. The Royales were voted the “Best Band In Athens,” (Athens NEWS Reader’s Poll) in 2003, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 10, and 2012, 13 and 14.

With a workhorse load of cover songs in their repertoire, such as “If You Love Me Like You Say” (Albert Collins), “I Wish” (Stevie Wonder), and “Heartbreaker” (Rolling Stones), the Royales are sure to be entertaining and fun for audiences of all different tastes. For the more adventurous… they also have accumulated a hefty amount of rockin’, yet funky originals.

The Royales have shared stages with everyone from Jorma Kaukonen & Hot Tuna to the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, The Radiators, Willie Nelson, the Carpenter Ants, Mudhoney, Michael Hurley, Johnny Rawls, and have even played “T-Bone Shufle” with Tab Benoit on the lead guitar. The Royales high energy and take no prisoners approach to their blues/rock sound inspire dancing in abundance, and typically scare the bejeezus out of any act they open for.
