On The Road Management


On The Road Management is always looking for new live music to bring to Nelson. Over the next few months, we’re going to see some living legends and newer contemporary acts parading through Nelson.

Toronto indie rockers Sunparlour Players are returning to Nelson on Thursday, April 24 along with Newfoundland’s Fortunate Ones, and local songstress Rhoneil.

The Wailin’ Jenny’s founder Ruth Moody plays the Nelson Civic Theatre with her solo band on Wednesday, April 30 along with James Lamb.

Corb Lund and the Hurtin’ Albertans will roll through town and stop at the Capitol Theatre on Tuesday, May 13 on their Spring Thaw tour. Tickets are still available through the Capitol Theatre box office.

Two staples in the west coast folk rock scene are joining forces on May 23 for a huge night at Spiritbar — Tequila Mockingbird Orchestra and Fish & Bird are long time friends, and haven’t shared a stage in a while. This one-night-only event should not be missed!

New announcements include:  Big John Bates (May 16), Kenny Blues Boss Wayne (May 30), D.O.A (June 21), Charlie Hunter (July 22), Great Lake Swimmers (July 23), The Pack A.D (August 7), and Maceo Parker (October 14/15.
