**David Nelson Band**

The David Nelson Band has been recording and performing around the country since 1994. Their broad musical palette spans the Almost Acoustic style that Nelson played with Jerry Garcia, through roots rock n’ roll, and psychedelic country-rock. The DNB perform David’s compositions (some co-written with Grateful Dead lyricist Robert Hunter), select covers, and several Grateful Dead classics upon which Nelson appeared on the original album releases. These stylistic elements, combined with plenty of spontaneous free form improvisation, create a sound that is uniquely David Nelson Band. Though the original songs are mostly written by Nelson, the development of all the material is a fully collaborative effort. The Nelson, Sless, Siegel, Sears, Molo Band as a name is a bit cumbersome – though in reality, that’s what they are.

These days the DNB only play select areas a few times a year, as the individual band members are in high demand with other successful touring acts. Their loyal and enthusiastic fans relish these special times to reunite at Nelson family gatherings. DNB shows are a joyous reunion for all – a communal gathering where regulars and newcomers all feel part of an extended family. Each show, being unique and exploratory in nature, is a magical adventure for band and audience alike.



After expenses, all proceeds from this show will go to ‘Team Gleason’ who stepped in and helped Bernie with his practical needs when he needed it most. Team Gleason is an organization founded by pro- football player Steve Gleason who contracted ALS but still lives a productive and meaningful life despite his debilitating illness. They provided Bernie with a wheelchair when his legs failed him and an Eye Gaze Device to help him communicate when he could no longer speak.

‘Team Gleason is a 501(c)(3) organization. Our mission is to support the ALS community in all 50 states by providing leading-edge technology, equipment, and adventures while raising awareness for the disease. All funds donated from your event will support our mission.Learn More about Team Gleason here:
