Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real - w/ 61 North
Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real
Lukas Nelson, who last appeared in the area opening for an amazed BB King at Longwood, finally comes to Delaware with his new album and a major tour underway.
Opening for Lukas - 61 North -
61 North is an electrifying blues-rock band whose high-energy performances have established them as one of the Northeast's best live concert and festival attractions. Their swampy, guitar-heavy sound has drawn comparisons to Gov't Mule; their freewheeling, Southern-rock vibe to the Allman Brothers Band; and their charismatic funk-pop to the Black Crowes. Now, having captured that live energy on their new record Back Down To The Woods, 61 North is set for a national breakthrough in 2012.

But 2011 was also the year, through blood, sweat and trying times, that Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real - which also includes drummer Anthony LoGerfo, percussionist Tato Melgar and bassist Corey McCormick - made good on that promise to keep it real, and to make their way out of the shadow of a famous father and into the hearts and souls of music fans nationwide the way that they wanted to on their own downhome rock and roll merits.
During the summer of 2011 Nelson, 22 years old at the time, found himself in the most intense writing jag of his early career. His journey spanned three soul-searching summer months during an intense 15-week tour. The result, the band's second full-length album, Wasted.
