Milquetoast Kenny G Rock???

I'm looking for a specific artist, or a specific sound. I heard a motorcycle guy blasting music out of his speakers, and it was a sort of rock, not quite arena rock, but something like it. The main description I can think of is "Kenny G Rock" for it was utterly milquetoast and non-offensive and yet...

Well as I said, he was blasting it, and blasting it for a good 5 minutes if not more while I filled up my gas. Normally I associate that kind of blasting with very hard loud music, either some sort of metal or hip-hop with a lot of bass. But not this. As I said it was milquetoast. I feel like most arena rock was harder than this. But it wasn't exactly soft. It definitely was rock, and had all the right qualities to be rock. The production was very high quality, and it almost sounded as if it was done by very talented studio musicians.
Can anyone think of any rock that verges on the arena rock sound but doesn't really offend or have any depth? I would say the vocals were almost a sort of operatic style, but the music was not particularly moving like one would expect an operatic song to be.
As I said, it was milquetoast kenny g rock.
Any ideas whatsoever that this could be? Because damned if I don't want to find out and play it for people to say "SEE SEE! This exists!"
