Little River Band with Special Guest Lords of 52nd Street
Founding member of The Eagles, the late Glenn Frey, dubbed Little River Band “the best singing band in the world.” Through the 1970s and 1980s, Little River Band enjoyed huge chart success with multiplatinum albums and chart topping hits such as “Reminiscing,” “Cool Change,” “Lonesome Loser,” “The Night Owls,” “Take It Easy on Me,” “Help Is on Its Way,” “Happy Anniversary,” “We Two,” “Man On Your Mind,” “The Other Guy,” and “It’s a Long Way There.”
Bassist/vocalist Wayne Nelson joined the band in 1980, and worked alongside founding members with some of the most distinctive harmonies and vocal abilities, creating the unique Little River Band sound. In 1981, Nelson was recognized by world renowned Beatles producer Sir George Martin whom, while producing Time Exposure, chose Nelson to record lead vocals on two of the band’s biggest hits, “The Night Owls” and “Take It Easy On Me.” Later that same year, guitarist extraordinaire Stephen Housden joined Little River Band bringing a rock element into the band’s sound and helped contribute to their string of Top 10 hits. As band members departed one by one, Housden and Nelson worked together to bring Little River Band into the new millennium.
To date, Nelson’s vocal and bass guitar talents are included on 23 Little River Band albums. Although Housden has retired from touring, Little River Band continues to perform to sold out audiences and Stephen continues to write and participate in all things Little River Band.
Touring and recording with Billy Joel, rock band Lords of 52nd Street features original Billy Joel band members Richie Cannata, Liberty Devitto and Russell Javors. They will perform Joel’s biggest hits like “Only the Good Die Young,” “Just the Way You Are” and more!
