The Bliss Band

The Bliss Band were an English adult-oriented rock band of the late 1970s. Based in Los Angeles, the band recorded two albums for Columbia: the Steely Dan-inspired Dinner With Raoul (1978) and the West Coast-styled Neon Smiles (1979).

Members: Paul Bliss (vocals, piano, keyboards), Nigel Elliott (drums, percussion), Phil Palmer (guitar), Andy Brown (bass, vocals), Alan Park (organ, piano, keyboards)

The band was named after frontman/multi-instrumentalist/composer Paul Bliss, who previously sang and played bass for the United Artists one-off Dog Soldier. Alan Park had played on the Goin’ Down Laughing album by Tiger with sessionist Andy Brown, who had been a member of Dragonfly with the ubiquitous Phil Palmer.
