Little River Band’s popularity has spanned decades and today the group remains as strong as ever with a new fusion of spontaneity, rock and roll and blues, anchored by American bass player Wayne Nelson, who began his career with the band in 1980. Before that Little River Band was the first Australian band to successfully conquer foreign markets from an Australian base.
Within eight months of their birth, Little River Band had already scored three Australian top 20 singles and two top 10 albums. In 1976, after their self-titled debut album was released in the USA, Little River Band hit the road with 13 US tours in eight years. By 1982 they became the only act, from anywhere, to have a top 10 single for six consecutive years.
Headlining their own major shows in America, and touring internationally with the likes of the Doobie Brothers, Supertramp, America and the Eagles was a huge learning curve that honed Little River Band into one of the finest live bands in the world.
Hits like "Lady," "Cool Change" and "Reminiscing" sold millions for this group. Capacity crowds across America and beyond continue to attest the enduring appeal of Little River Band.
