LRB continues to deliver distinctive harmonies and vocal abilities under the direction of 41-year LRB veteran, lead vocalist, and bass player Wayne Nelson. To date, Wayne has contributed his talents to 24 of Little River Band's albums/CDs. LRB was honorably dubbed "the best singing band in the world." by Eagles founding member, the late Glenn Frey. Little River Band has undergone an evolution or two since its origins as an Australian rock band hungry to make it in America. Fans nostalgic for such tunes as "Reminiscing" or "Lady" can join us to hear the current incarnation for a night of fantastic music, memories, and more. Their song "Reminiscing" has garnered more than 5 million air plays on American radio, with "Lady" following close behind with more than 4 million air plays. In September 2015, the band was awarded Casino Entertainer of the Year at the G2E Gaming Expo in Las Vegas.
