Day-long festival celebrates The Royal’s first year of bringing music and laughter to the Glenside community

The Royal, an intimate music and arts venue located at 1 South Easton Road, will celebrate its one-year anniversary with an all-day festival on September 24.

Since opening its doors on Sept. 18, 2021, The Royal has presented more than 100 live performances
featuring noted local and up-and-coming musicians whose styles range from blues and rock to jazz and
folk, pop punk and funk. Other events include comedy and improv nights, musical bingo, and trivia
contests. The Royal also offers an event space for rehearsals, private lessons, and parties.

The anniversary event will offer afternoon and evening performances by local and regional acts.

The afternoon session features music from Miss Mandy & the Somethings, Copstache, Beth Arnold
Gilbert, Julia Rose, and The Bernie Gillespie Band, and stand-up comedy by Andrew Sironi and Don
Jamieson. Jamieson is a nationally known entertainer who co-hosted VH1 Classic’s That Metal Show, for
14 seasons. Since 2019 he has hosted the weekly That Jamieson Show, released comedy albums, and
appeared at clubs and venues around the country.

Headlining the evening session, and fresh from his European tour, is Philadelphia-based Ben Arnold. This versatile singer, songwriter, performer, and producer will offer his “crusty, curmudgeonly, but loving
take” on the world. Also appearing are Paul Saint John & The Nighthawks, The 29ers and The Royal
House Band with a special tribute commemorating their first year.

The Royal in full swing

General admission tickets are $15 for the afternoon session and $20 pre-sale / $25 door for the evening
show. An all-day pass is $40, which includes an original commemorative poster commissioned especially
for this event. Locally brewed beers from The Ways will be on tap, and patrons can bring their own wine.
