The Little River Band Played An Outdoor Yearly Festival in Oak Ridge Tennessee June 9th to a huge crowd. It was a hot day but people were lined up all the way down the street to get in the gates to see the band. Janelle Arthur- former American Idol contestant and finalist on season 12 opened the show. She did a great job warming up the audience. Playing some of her music and some cover songs. Meeting fans after her set.
Little River Band was up next, and they did not disappoint.
They came out and did lots of your favorite Little River Band songs like
“Reminiscing”, “Cool Change” , “Lonesome Loser”, “Take it Easy On Me”, “Help is on its Way”, “Happy Anniversary”, “Lady”, “Night Owls”, and also a New Little River Band song. Which was well recieved by the audience.
They Had The Huge crowd singing and dancing in the 90+ degree heat.
They had a very nice light show when the sun went down too. Bassist Wayne Nelson whos been with the band since 1980 did most of the singing and did a wonderful job. You could tell everyone was having alot of fun up on the stage.
Chris Marion the dove award winning producer keyboardist got out in front a few times to play his Keytar. Even playing it behind his head to a rousing applause by the crowd. Colin did a great job taking over on vocals a few times and Rich and Ryan kept the beat going and they all harmonised very well together.
It was a very fun night for all.
