  • Royale with Queen Buzz and Highdiver

  • Friday, January 9, 2015
    at 9:00pm, Lincoln Hall, Chicago, IL
  • IT ONLY TOOK 2 DECADES... for Joel & Nate to find Marc Najjar and for the youngest Bauman, Zach, to grow up enough that this show could finally happen. Royale's Debut Album Release Show will be held on January 9th, and we'd like you to be part of our special performance, along with guests Queen Buzz and Highdiver.

    Each band in the lineup calls Chicago Music Exchange home, where you can find them behind the counter on a daily basis or see them in front of the camera on the store's popular YouTube channel.
