Lukas Nelson and the Promise of the Real: Sound Check and Artist Chat
February 8th, 4:30pm
Uptown Theater, KCMO
High School and College Age Music Students are invited to join Lukas Nelson and his bandmates on February 8th for a chat at the Uptown Theater in Kansas City, MO. Nelson and his band want
to talk about how making music is a positive force in life; it can keep you on track and away from things that tear you down. Students who attend will get to sit in on the band's professional sound check and see behind the scenes of a large scale performance.
The workshop is presented in partnership with the 90.9 the Bridge and Art As Mentorship, a new young songwriter program that develops young songwriters in Kansas City.
A little about the band:
Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, (Anthony Logerfo, Corey McCormick, Tato Melgar) have played hundreds of shows and major festivals all over the world and built a devoted underground following. Lukas’ profile continued to rise when he contributed three songs and heavenly vocals to his dad Willie Nelson’s 2012 album,
. Then two years later, life took another turn skyward when Neil Young decided to make Promise of the Real his touring and studio band. Young has guided the grateful young musicians ever since as they’ve backed the legend on tour around the world and on his two most recent albums.
Coming of age in a celebrated musical family, Lukas Nelson learned early on that true originality is hard won, never given. Doubtlessly blessed with a measure of musical ability, it’s clear that his natural gifts have been honed by a singular devotion to craft and a deep appreciation for the sacrifice a creative life requires.
