    Little River Band

    The Eagles founding member, the late Glenn Frey, knew what he was saying when he dubbed Little River Band "the best singing band in the world." Through the '70s and '80s, LRB enjoyed huge chart success with multi-platinum albums and chart topping hits like: "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." Worldwide album, CD sales and digital downloads now top 30 million and LRB has set a record for having had Top 10 hits for 6 consecutive years – In fact, they were the very first band to achieve that remarkable status! According to BMI, "Reminiscing" has garnered rare status with over 5 million airplays on American radio, and"Lady" is close behind with over 4 million airplays.

    Bassist/vocalist Wayne Nelson joined the band in 1980. Working alongside the founding members on stage and in the studio, he added his voice to the distinctive harmonies that create the unique LRB sound. In 1981, Nelson's voice was recognized by world renowned Beatles producer Sir George Martin while working on the Time Exposure album. Wayne was chosen 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 LRB bringing a rock element into the band's sound and helped contribute to their string of Top 10 hits. As band members departed, both Housden and Nelson worked together to bring LRB into the new millennium. Currently the band's lead singer, Nelson has contributed his vocal and bass guitar talents to 22 Little River Band Albums/CD's. LRB continues to perform to sold out audiences, and Stephen Housden continues to write and participate in all things Little River Band. Keyboardist Chris Marion is a Dove Award winning producer. Chris is the creator of all the orchestral arrangements and charts on The Big Box. It is amazing to watch him play, sing, and conduct from his riser! Lead Guitarist Rich Herring is a highly skilled player, singer, and producer of many Nashville artists…not to mention a great songwriter. He and Wayne have co-produced every LRB project since he joined the band. Drummer Ryan Ricks has locked down the rhythm section, and rounds out the vocals with his incredible range. Great singing drummers are rare…and LRB is lucky to have Ryan as part of that all-important vocal blend. Nashville Guitarist Colin Whinnery plays rhythm and lead guitar, and shares lead vocal duties with Wayne. He brings a brand new voice and a fresh outlook to the rhythm section.

    Bringing their vocal and musical energy along with some cool arrangements to their timeless classic hits, each show creates new memories for the audience. The band enjoys watching their fans fall in love with the songs all over again as they are swept up by the show's powerful performance and the volume of hits from LRB's history. Little River Band is hotter than ever, selling out shows and making music from coast to coast nationwide, continuing their legacy of being "the best singing band in the world."

    Frankie Ballard

    Country- blues-rocker Frankie Ballard released his latest album El Rio (Warner Nashville) to critical acclaim and was selected by Rolling Stone as one of the 25 Best Country and Americana albums of 2016 and The Tennessean as one of the best 16 Nashville albums of 2016. The singer songwriter has had three #1 country hits to date and boasts Spotify streams in excess of 2.2 million. With a combined album sales of over 450,000 to date with over 150 million total streams across all streaming platforms, Ballard continues to lead the lead country music mixing an American heartland rock sound with traditional country and blues.

    Frankie Ballard’s previous album, Sunshine & Whiskey, produced three consecutive no. 1 singles – the platinum-certified “Sunshine & Whiskey,” the gold-certified “Helluva Life,” and one of the Top 3 Billboard Country Airplay songs of 2015, “Young & Crazy.” He has performed on national television including Today, Live with Kelly and Jimmy Kimmel Live. Ballard has performed and toured with Luke Bryan, Keith Urban, Bob Seger, Kenny Chesney, Lady Antebellum, Big and Rich as well as at festivals such as Summerfest, Tortuga Music Festival, CMA Fest and many more.

    Opening for Frankie Ballard is EmiSunshine. The exceptional talents of critically-acclaimed teen music prodigy EmiSunshine have captured the nation's attention. The singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist has been hailed by outlets such as Billboard and Rolling Stone: "Sounds like the spunky, intense little sister to artists Iris DeMent, Natalie Maines, Nanci Griffith and Janis Joplin." EmiSunshine has already graced some of the most-prestigious stages–from "The Today Show" to the Grand Ole Opry (over a dozen times) and most recently, "Little Big Shots starring Steve Harvey." Additionally, EmiSunshine stars in and performs three songs in her latest film appearance on "The King," alongside such celebrities as Roseanne Cash, Emmylou Harris, Ethan Hawke, Alec Baldwin and more. The film featured at this year’s Sundance Film Festival and premiered at Cannes Film Festival, where Emi performed.
