Where: The Southern
Cost: $8 Advance / $10 Day of Show
Two brothers, one greasy trombone, backbone bass, pocket drums, dirty south guitar and a hell of a lot of fun: that is Lord Nelson. They play rock and roll that is at once accessible and original. The band consists of Kai Crowe-Getty on guitar and vocals, Henry Jones on Trombone and vocals with Bram Crowe-Getty on drums, Trevor Pietsch on bass and Robert Word on lead guitar.
Lord Nelson brings the same sense of intimacy to house parties and outdoor pavilions alike. Their original compositions are varied and range from slow burning, harmony laced anthems to back beat pulsing floor stompers. Their songs not only celebrate a time when hardworking rock and roll bands thrived throughout America, but also pay tribute to musical mentors, lost loved ones and rowdy nights on the town. This is an ambitious young group with a powerful live stage presence. There is a kinetic whirlwind when these guys hit the stage and it is certainly one that you want to be swept up in.
