Collective Soul is Coming Back to Vegas!

January of 2023 is bringing back two things that we at ZRockR love: Collective Soul and The Pearl Theater at The Palms!

The Atlanta based band comprised of Ed Roland (vocals), Dean Roland (guitar), Will Turpin (bass), Jesse Triplett (guitar) and Johnny Rabb (drums) released their new album Vibrating at the end of 2022.

If you’ve not heard the album yet, I definitely suggest you check it out. There are blues and country elements mixed with the alternative sound that makes the band stick out from the rest. My personal favorite on the record would have to be “Reason”, which is heavy and rhythmic. For the softer side of the record, “Back Again” tugs at the heart and reminds me a lot of 1995’s “The World I Know” in some ways with the way it crescendos into the chorus.

We caught the band in 2015 at House of Blues in Las Vegas and were completely blown away not only by their energy on stage, but how incredible they still sound. The band was as tight as ever, and we are excited to hopefully report the same with the upcoming show!

Collective Soul will be playing The Pearl on Saturday, January 14, 2023. For tickets CLICK HERE.

Stephanie " Stephy " Muzio (formerly Hayward) - Public Relations / Writer/ Photographer and Co-Founder of ZRockR Magazine Co-host of ZRockR Magazine LIVE! Stephy was raised on rock and roll. Originally from Illinois, Stephy is the daughter of an aspiring metal guitarist and a former rock n roll radio dj. Stephy’s first concert at the tender age of 8 was Rob Zombie at the original Joint inside the Hard Rock Hotel in Vegas, where she happily threw horns up and sang along to "Dragula" with the best of them ( she incidentally loves horror films too!) . She performed with the VGA choir at the 2007 Video Game Awards show at Mandalay Bay when it was hosted by Samuel L Jackson, sharing the stage with the likes of Foo Fighters as well as Kid Rock. An LVA alum, when she isn’t singing or playing herself (she plays a few different instruments), she is out in support of the local scene and at her friends gigs around the southwest and even when she is back home in Illinois! She has written as well as done some photography previously for a couple of smaller zines including Vegas SoundZ when it was in print. Stephy takes the adage of ” If it’s too loud that is just too damn bad! ” to heart- after all- she was raised around screaming guitars, thunderous drums, production studios and only Led Zeppelin and Nirvana played extremely loud would put her to sleep as a kid! Stephy is a large part of the backbone of ZRockR.
