Grammy-nominated rockers Tonic playing Showboat Atlantic City June 23rd

11 June 2012

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- American rock trio Tonic will play the Party Pit at the House of Blues at Showboat Atlantic City Saturday, June 23rd. The band, currently working on their next studio album, will play a free, open-to-the-public show at Showboat’s rock and roll gaming area.

“This summer is loaded with entertainment in Atlantic City, especially at the House of Blues Party Pit,” said Jason Spencer, Regional Director of Entertainment for Caesars Entertainment. “We have a full summer schedule of amazing free headliners including platinum-selling Tonic in June.”

Tonic is a musical powerhouse, merging the raw honesty of rock to unabashed melody and ushering rock n roll into a new millennium. Founded in Los Angeles in 1993, Tonic has toured extensively to promote their impressive collection of albums including Grammy nominated Head on Straight. “When we play music together it feels like going home,” explains singer and guitarist Emerson Hart. “Getting together, playing some rock-n-roll: it’s the best feeling in the world.”

Hart founded Tonic with guitarist Jeff Russo – a childhood friend – adding bassist Dan Lavery shortly after inception. After storming the charts with debut album Lemon Parade and its monster hit “If You Could Only See,” the band released two additional studio albums, Sugar and Head On Straight, as well as a live EP, Live & Enhanced. They’ve been featured on a number of soundtracks, including the lead single from American Pie, “You Wanted More.” The band also released a Greatest Hits CD/DVD package in July 2009 and a self tiled album in May 2010.

The performance is free and open to the public and Showboat Atlantic City urges fans looking to view the concert up close to come early, as reservations are not accepted.
