Josh Hoyer & Soul Colossal

November 10, 2018 9:00 pm 701 Main Street, Daytona Beach, Florida

Josh Hoyer & Soul Colossal’s combination of soul, funk and R&B is in a word, electric. Best displayed in their high-energy live show, the blend of Hoyer’s honest lyrics and his rich, intensely soulful vocals merge with his top-notch band to create an undeniable chemistry.

Hoyer formed Josh Hoyer & Soul Colossal in 2012 in famed blues town Lincoln, Nebraska. The award-winning five-piece band includes some of the area’s most revered and accomplished musicians. Joining Hoyer (keyboards/vocals) is Benjamin Kushner (guitar), Blake DeForest (trumpet), Mike Keeling (bass), and Larell Ware (drums). Inspired by the sounds of Stax, Motown, Muscle Shoals, New Orleans, Philly and San Francisco, the band continuously crosses musical boundaries both in style and era, and joins forces each show with a common goal – to have the crowd dancing so much they forget even their smallest troubles.

On January 26th, 2018, Hoyer released “The End of the Night”, a 3-song EP and solo side project with veteran Nashville songwriters Jay Knowles (Harry Connick Jr, Blake Shelton), and Jon Coleman (Trace Adkins). In the spring of 2018, Josh Hoyer & Soul Colossal recorded their fourth full length record, ‘Do It Now’, which will be released in Europe in August of 2018, followed by a 7-week European tour before its US release.

In 2017, Josh was featured as a contestant on NBC’s The Voice, and the band completed their first European tour; a 27-city stint capped with a live album release from their show in Brussels, Belgium.The hard working band completed several national tours from 2015-2017, playing more than 150 shows in 32 states each year, including opening for George Clinton, Charles Bradley, Booker T Jones, and Muscle Shoals Revue.

Benton Blount

July 27, 2018 8:00 pm 701 Main Street, Daytona Beach, Florida

Back in Daytona Beach by popular demand – WROD The Rock of Daytona presents Benton Blount in concert Friday July 27th at 8PM.

Growing up in the North Carolina mountains, Benton Blount never picked up a guitar or a microphone, much less played a tune. At age 18, his music pastor snuck a microphone up to his mouth and to his and everyone’s amazement, a beautiful voice was pouring out. Thus, sparking Benton’s passion for singing and writing songs.

The Season 10 airing of NBC’s America’s Got Talent was a triumphant moment for singer-songwriter Benton Blount, who sailed through the audition round with the enthusiastic support of all four of the show’s celebrity judges. For country radio, it may have served as a reminder of a talented artist who once slipped through the cracks of the Nashville system. But his success on the show, says Blount, confirms “what my heart and my mind has already told me, that … the people who even toyed around with the idea of signing me to a [Nashville label] deal and then walked away for some reason missed out on something. It’s been a mission of mine ever since then to prove them wrong. This is my way of doing it without having to go through the hoops.”

Benton would go on to finish Season 10 of AGT in the Top 5 and has never looked back. Splitting his time between recording new music, touring, raising his children and hosting a weekly audio blog, Benton stays busy for sure.
