EUROPE'S 1ST AND ONLY DEDICATED TRIBUTE TO ROCK N ROLL PIONEER RICKY NELSON
Well I have returned from my epic tour of the USA in May 2023. I could not have wished to have worked with 6 of the finest musicians I could ever dreamt of working with.
I got to perform at the Troubadour, Nashville with Denny Sarokin (Ricks guitarist of 7 years in The Stone Canyon Band in the 70s).
This was one of the highlights of my career. Such a nice guy to chat to after the show also. On the back of the success of the tour talks are on going about a return to the USA and possibly Canada also.
I have posted videos on my YouTube Channel of some of my performances on the tour which give you some idea. I had great support from the UK, friends flying over etc. Thanks to all of you. Here is the link for my channel.
We have Travelin' Man dates this Autumn which I am about to post on the Events page. All tickets are on sale now. Thanks for reading, anyone wanting to book the show or myself as a solo show get in touch via the contact page.
Lastly I have been endorsed by Tracy Kristen Nelson, well know actress and daughter of Mr Ricky Nelson. I am totally blown away by this. The ultimate honour from the Nelson family.
Keeping the flame alive.
Hope you are all well and staying safe.
Exciting news which I would have only dreamt of a few years ago. I will be headlining my own tour in the USA in May 2023. Yes you read that right. Along with full band and support I will be crossing the pond to spread the gospel of Ricky Nelson.
4 dates confirmed across the state of Tennessee.
May 9th The American Legion Post 82, Nashville
May 11th The Troubador, Nashville
May 12th Hernandos Hideaway, Memphis
May 13th AFW Airways Club, Jackson
I posted this news on a Ricky Nelson Forum a few days ago and the respone was incredible. So if any of my UK followers are in the area around this time come on down. I will be supported by the amazing artist Tracey K Houston.
I simply cannot wait and I will be proud to honour the legend Mr Ricky Nelson
Hope you are all well and staying safe. Gigs are back as we all know and it has been great getting back out on the road paying my tribute to my hero Ricky Nelson. Big news is a new show.
THE CONCERT THAT NEVER WAS Ricky Nelson & Jerry Lee Lewis.
This is an idea I have had re an event in Feb 1985 when Ricky and Jerry Lee were due to play the Hollywood Amphitheater in LA and Jerry Lee cancelled at the last minute. Just imagine these 2 icons of the 50s and 60s together, 2 total contrasting artists, the wild Jerry Lee rebel along with the respectable tv star turned rock n roll singer Ricky. this show will also feature the Country Music output of both artists. Jerry Lee tribute artist Peter Gill will be sharing the stage with me for this show along with The Travelin' Man Band. 2 dates already confirmed for our Autumn 2022 launch. Keep an eye on the gig list for dates. As usual my show Travelin' Man The Ricky Nelson Rock n Roll Show will have around 10 dates and I'm also appearing in Rock n Roll Paradise once more. If you wish to book any of my shows get in touch via the Contact page on this site.
Keep rockin' folks
