The David Nelson Band began making music together in 1994. In recent years, due to the band members individual commitments with other successful touring acts, they have only been touring select areas a few times a year. A loyal and enthusiastic group of fans wait eagerly for these special times of year so they can reunite at a Nelson family gathering. DNB shows are a joyous family reunion for fans and band -- a communal gathering where old fans and newcomers all feel part of the extended family. The band has a large repertoire of original and cover material to draw from and each show is unique and exploratory in nature, prompting many of the fans to follow the band to every show they play, be it the annual Hawaii Tour which takes place in January or February each year (and draws about a hundred or so fans from the mainland for the week to ten-day long island party), or the annual Harvest Tour of the northern California coast that has been a tradition each November since 2001. Neither band nor fans know what kind of musical journey each song may take at any given performance, making for a magical shared adventure. The material ranges from the “Almost Acoustic” style that Nelson played with Jerry Garcia, through roots rock n’ roll, and psychedelic country, featuring many original David Nelson songs (some co-written with Robert Hunter) and a few classic Grateful Dead tunes from the albums Nelson recorded on with them. These elements are all combined with spontaneous free-form improvisation, creating a style that is uniquely David Nelson Band.
