Little River Band plays Historic Everett Theatre on Friday

  • The Little River Band performs Friday night at the Historic Everett Theatre.

    The Little River Band performs Friday night at the Historic Everett Theatre.

Little River Band had its start in Melbourne, Australia, in 1975.
In its heyday in the late 1970s and early '80s, the band had 13 top-40 hits in the U.S., including "Lady," "Cool Change," "Take It Easy On Me" and "Lonesome Loser."
Little River Band is in town Friday night at the Historic Everett Theatre. Curt Shriner, of the theater, said he is excited to bring a big-name band to Everett.
By 1982 Little River Band had notched numerous hits on the top-10 U.S. singles chart and toured internationally with the likes of the Doobie Brothers, Supertramp, America, Heart, Boz Scaggs, Fleetwood Mac and the Eagles.
Perhaps it's just the nature of the recording industry, but the Australian men who wrote the band's most famous songs, such as "Reminiscing," are long gone.
Wayne Nelson, an American who joined the band in 1980, is the senior member of the group, which is now all-American and leans to country music, with solid ties to Nashville.
Nelson, the group's bass player and lead singer, still treats fans to the band's big hits. And people who attend the concert tonight should expect the best of those songs.
The band's new lineup brings new energy to the classic hits, Nelson said.
Respecting the history of the band and wanting to do what's right for the songs, the current band also is having fun exploring new ways to deliver the songs, he said.
Playing tonight
Little River Band performs at 8 p.m. Friday, April 25, at the Historic Everett Theatre, 2911 Colby Ave., Everett.
Tickets are $35. Call the box office at 425-258-6766.
