“We love our fans and this is our idea of throwing our 53rd birthday party – virtually,” Gunnar Nelson said. “This our chance to take advantage of the technology to bring people closer when we need it most.”
The Nelson family has been entertaining audiences – in what they call ‘the people connection business’ – for well over 100 years. Their grandparents pioneered radio and television with The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet; their Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Inductee father, Ricky Nelson, ushered in rock and roll into American homes and helped establish the country rock sound; they cemented the Nelson family as the only family in history to have three successive generations of No.1 hit makers with their smash hit, the self-penned ‘(Can’t Live Without Your) Love and Affection‘ from their multi-platinum selling debut album ‘After The Rain‘. Armed with just two guitars and two voices, it’s a virtual concert and a storytelling event with a nod to the past and a tap to the future. The siblings’ soaring harmonies and penchant for crafted song hooks includes additional Top 40 songs, ‘After The Rain‘, ‘Only Time Will Tell‘, ‘More Than Ever‘, ‘All Shook Up‘ and more recently, ‘This Christmas‘. Matthew and Gunnar are also in the midst of recording songs for their country rock project ‘First Born Sons‘.
The long time Nashville residents have never stopped touring and writing. Matthew and Gunnar demonstrate an ever-evolving sound that circles their unique harmony blend and acoustic base. They are in theirzone when it’s just their two voices and two guitars.
