Little River Band

Come and hear one of the tightest and vocally superb bands ever….sing along with the massive radio hits; Reminiscing, Lonesome Loser, It’s a Long Way There, Help Is on Its Way, Happy Anniversary, Lady, Cool Change, The Night Owls, Take It Easy On Me, Man On Your Mind, We Two, The Other Guy …just to name a few.

Little River Band was formed in Melbourne, Australia in 1975. It was originally a blend of musicians who had enjoyed success in other Australian acts. Their new focus was to get airplay on American radio, and they achieved that goal with good songwriting, powerful vocals, and guitar harmonies. They immediately claimed their place as one of the great vocal bands of the ‘70s…and the ‘80s. Between 1976 and 1983, chart success in America included Top 10 hits for 7 consecutive years…the first band to ever achieve that mark.

Artist Bio

Wayne Nelson, Bass - After a Chicago band named Koala (!) split up, Wayne moved to LA in 1978 where he joined Jim Messina's band. Messina and Little River Band toured together in '79. LRB asked Nelson to join for their next tour of Australia, Europe, and America. 30 years later, Nelson has seen many musicians and singers come in and out of the LRB family. His view on all those lineup changes..."In all these years with LRB, I've sung, played, and rearranged our music with many different lineups, each with a different interpretation and style. This group of guys is unique in that we all cut our teeth on the same types of music when we were young. We have the utmost respect for the history of the band, and for what Little River Band songs mean to our fans…but we always look for a way to bring something new to the stage. We have fun exploring new ways to deliver the songs - recognizable and powerful, with new twists that will delight those fans who like to listen deep and analyze... 

Greg Hind, Rhythm - Greg Hind has been an integral part of the bands current sound since 2000. Before joining LRB Greg played and sang with many well-known artists including Thelma Houston, Kylie Minogue, and Bachelor Girl. Greg shares lead vocal duty, and is instrumental in looking for ways to keep the band’s arrangements fresh and current. 

Rich Herring, Lead - Nashville-based Rich Herring joined the band as lead guitarist when Stephen Housden took a well-deserved break from touring. With him came extensive studio experience, not only as a player, but also as an engineer and producer. The 2006 live CD “Standing Room Only”, the 2008 holiday release, “A Little River Band Christmas”, and the current project, "Cuts Like A Diamond", were all mixed at Rich's Nashville studio. 

Chris Marion, Keys - After college, Chris moved to Nashville and began his playing career, garnering nominations for 4 Dove awards from the Gospel Music Assoc. In 1992, he joined with partner Danny Myrick to form Western Flyer and later worked with artists such as Garth Brooks and The Oak Ridge Boys. In early 2005, he entered the Little River Band family, and has recorded 5 CDs with the band since then. 

Ryan Ricks, Drums - After graduating from Belmont College in Nashville TN, Ryan played and sang with Lacy J Dalton for a few years. He went on to tour in his own band and ended up putting down the drumsticks and singing background vocals for Loretta Lynn. He married his wife Terri, adopted a beautiful little girl from China, changed careers into the computer software world and left music for about 15 years. Only after a call from an old friend, Rich Herring, did he get back to playing drums and singing with Little River Band. He's loving it.
