Velvet Sessions at Hard Rock Hotel Presents Smash Mouth September 29

Smash Mouth

Every month, except November and December, the Hard Rock Hotel at Universal Orlando hosts a live concert called Velvet Sessions. It’s a 21 and over event that features classic rock and pop artists performing in an intimate club-like atmosphere.

This month, Smash Mouth will be performing on Thursday, September 29, 2016.

Smash Mouth is a California rock band that first hit it big in the late 90s with songs like “Walkin’ on the Sun,” “All Star,” and a cover of The Monkees’ “I’m a Believer,” off the Shrek soundtrack. Most recently, the band released a “Live” album in 2015.


Tickets for Velvet Sessions are $29 in advance online or $35 at the door. This not only gets you in the door, but free specialty drinks, finger foods and warm-up tunes from 6:30 pm until show time. Complimentary valet parking is also included.

For $50 ($55 day of), you can upgrade to VIP, which in addition to the above perks, gives you access to a special viewing area with a private bar serving those free specialty drinks all night.
