Earl Nelson & the Company have emerged out of Golden, Colorado to revitalize the Americana music of the 60's & 70's with a groovy mix of North Mississippi Hill Country Blues, Southern Rock Soul, and Bluegrass Funk. The band merges heavy basslines, killer country lead guitar, rolling banjo, swinging drums, with vintage piano & organ to back Earl's gritty vocals and slide guitar. With a large helping of gospel blues riffs and New Orleans piano solos, their live sound turns any stage into an old-fashioned juke joint.
"This southern blues rock band genrebends into bluegrass folk which kept people not only on their toes in anticipation of what will be played next, but on their feet as they boogied the night away." - Allison Scavo -The Pitch KC
In a short time, Earl Nelson & the Company have put on shows with Early James, Left Lane Cruiser, Pierce Edens; played in Colorado, Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas; and graced some historic and beautiful stages:
Mishawaka Ampitheater, Cervantes Masterpiece, Globe Hall, Hotel Vegas, The Aztec Theater, The Skylark Lounge (ATX) and many more....
