Battiest brothers, Osceola brothers first to play new Hard Rock Live

HOLLYWOOD — Before Maroon 5, before Sting, and before Billy Joel, there were two Seminole brother music acts which christened the new 7,000-seat Hard Rock Live in Hollywood.

Seminole brothers and musicians Doc Battiest and Spencer Battiest became the first performers to play at the new Hard Rock Live on Oct. 16 in Hollywood.

They went on stage at 8 p.m. and were followed at 9 p.m. by the Seminole rock ‘n roll trio The Osceola Brothers, which consists of brothers Cameron, Tyson and Sheldon Osceola.

Spencer Battiest and Cameron Osceola both told the audience how much they love the new Hard Rock Live and that they were grateful to have the opportunity to play in it.

Hard Rock Live is part of the $1.5 billion expansion on the Seminole Tribe’s property that also includes The Guitar Hotel and Oasis Tower.

After the grand opening on Oct. 24, Maroon 5 played the following night.
