Today U.S. Royalty launched their highly anticipated debut album “Mirrors.” We share their excitement since we go way back- the band played our block party in 2009, and both the sweetlife festival and the Logan Circle grand opening in 2010. It has been a year in the making and this DC band is about to blow up! Here are some of our favorites off the album:
We’re proud to debut our short and sweet video of Chuck Geyer, our berry farmer and General Manager of Westmoreland Berry Farm. Hear the story of how our relationship began and what being a farmer means to him. Enjoy!
Here are some fun and upbeat tracks to help power you through finals or holiday shopping, enjoy! We would also like to give a shout out to US Royalty who are opening for Liz Phair tonight at the 9:30 club. Doors open at 8PM and tickets are $25, you should definitely check them out!
We are really excited to share the official new single, “Equestrian”, from friends and Sweetlife 2010 headliner US Royalty. Congrats to John, Paul, Jake, Luke and the whole USR family on the official release! We can’t wait for the whole album to drop later this Fall. You can download the full single for free from US Royalty’s website. Also check the song featured in the new Gant Rugged video with a guest appearance by John:
What a day! Our sincerest thanks go out to everyone who joined us at the sweetlife festival in Dupont Circle on Saturday! Despite the cloudy skies, the rain held off and the crowd grew steadily throughout the afternoon and evening. Over 750 people stopped by to enjoy the energetic atmosphere. With the success of this first festival under our belts, we’re already dreaming big for next year. Until then, stay tuned for additional coverage and keep living the sweetlife!
After playing our block party in October and our Logan Circle launch party in February, US Royalty is coming back for more. This time, you’ll catch them rocking out on the sweetlife festival stage rather than on our reclaimed wood benches. Scroll down, check out their awesome music video for “Every Summer”, and get that “sweetlife-festival-is-less-than-a-week-away” countdown started!
Fun fact: if there were a salad named “US Royalty”, it would be a lively mixture of romaine lettuce, spinach, feta cheese, asparagus (sautéed in oil and spices), shrimp, red pepper, sunflower seeds, olive oil and a squeeze of lemon.
“Sort of like a dream… no, better,” reads US Royalty‘s twitter bio. This Friday, the band is teaming up with MD rapper/singer Phil Adé to put on a show that we believe will be just that: better than a dream. Hot promo video and event flyer below. Doors @ 8:30 – be there!
Spotted @ Logan Circle Opening Party. We’d like to thank the Thornley brothers of US Royalty, Matthew Hemerlein, and all of our friends at Honest Tea and lululemon for helping us make this event unforgettable! Check out some photos below.
