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, Little River Band enjoyed huge chart success with multi-platinum albums and chart-topping hits such as “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.” With “Reminiscing” receiving an estimated 5 million plays on American radio, the group was recognized as having Top 10 hits for six consecutive years.

Some band members have come and gone since LRB launched their careers, but current lead singer and bass player Wayne Nelson is celebrating 42 years with the band, making him the longest standing member of the group. Other band members include Chris Marion (keyboards/vocals); Ryan Ricks (drums/percussion/vocals); Colin Whinnery (lead guitar/lead vocals); and Bruce Wallace (guitar/vocals).

Bringing their vocal and musical energy along with great 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.

With 90 -100 dates being scheduled for their 2022-2023 tour, Little River Band is hotter than ever selling out shows and making music coast to coast continuing their legacy of being “the best singing band in the world.”
