Opening for Nickelback at The WRAT’s Nutcracker Ball at Starland Ballroom This Friday!!!

How cool is this!?! Nickelback chose Jersey Rock veterans Reality Suite to open for them this Friday November 18 at The WRAT’s Nutcracker Ball!  The North Haldon Hard Rock outfit will take the stage at The Starland Ballroom in Sayreville for what will be an epic night in RAT Radio history!  Having a band that regularly sells out arenas performing at a 2,500 capacity venue is amazing in and of it self.  But when it happens on the release day of that band’s first new album in 5 years, that takes things to another level.  We’re not only excited to host this explosive show but to have a Jersey Rock band light its fuse!

Reality Suite’s latest releases “Awaken,” and their awesome acoustic album “Closure” are available now at!  A limited number of vinyls will be available at The Starland Ballroom on Friday.  Make sure you stop by the merch table and score some rad Reality Suite swag!

Tickets for The WRAT’s Nutcracker Ball sold out in less than 1 minute.  If you were lucky enough to purchase admission or win your way in from RAT Radio, make sure you get there early for a killer kick-off! We ask that you make a lot of noise for the hometown act!  However, you probably won’t need any encouragement once they start to play!

November 18 will be a big night for Reality Suite.  They’re all fans of Nickelback and being selected for this performance is nothing short of a dream come true.  However, as incredible a night it will be for Reality Suite, it will also be bitter sweet.  Lead singer Kimmii Heart’s biggest fan, her Father Robert, had tickets to the show.  We’re gutted to say that he won’t get to use those tickets.  He passed away last week.  Those who’ve suffered such a loss know the toll it takes.  We’re awestruck that Kimmii will press on and perform.  We know she will make him proud.

If you would like to help Kimmii Heart’s family with funeral expenses, you can donate HERE.  Anything you can give will be greatly appreciated.

Tune to Jersey Rock on 95.9 The Rat Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday night at 11:30 to hear selections from across Reality Suite’s catalog!  Drummer Brian King will call in to the show each night!
