The David Nelson Band performs a show at Shakedown Bar in Vail Village at the top of Bridge Street on Thursday, Sept. 8. The David Nelson Band has been recording and performing around the country since 1994. The band’s broad musical palette spans the Almost Acoustic style that Nelson played with Jerry Garcia, through roots rock ’n’ roll and country-rock, to full-blown psychedelic, jazz-tinged space jams. The David Nelson Band perform Nelson’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. Doors open at 7 p.m., and the show starts at 9 p.m. Tickets are $25. Visit http://www.nelsonband.com to learn more.
