Raised in the Pacific Northwest, Derik Nelson & Family’s signature sound features velvety three-part vocal harmonies that only a family can deliver. Siblings Derik, Riana, and Dalten have been performing together since childhood.
The Nelson siblings have garnered over 3.5 million views on YouTube, toured over 60 locations across the West Coast U.S.A., reached over 12,000 students with educational music workshops and assemblies, were invited to perform the National Anthem at a Seattle Seahawks home game, and are proud to tour nationwide with their own headlining concert as a family. Derik appeared regularly as the lead guitarist on television’s “Glee,” among other shows.
Derik Nelson & Family’s concert features pristine sound, a state of the art light show, and an integrated 20-foot video display. Derik’s interactive “clones” are featured throughout the show on the 5 screen video “wall.” The multiple “Derik clones” play many different instruments as a “virtual band.” This innovative technical marvel designed by Dalten uses the latest in audio/video technology to take audiences on an aural and visual journey through time, space, an impressive array of landscapes, weather conditions, and musical “settings.”
Listeners will be impressed with the perfectly blended three-part-harmony vocals, in addition to Derik’s thoughtful arrangements of cover songs from a variety of genres, styles, and eras. These genuinely kind, charming, and talented siblings have a bond that’s palpable, both on stage and off. Audiences of every age are sure to be mesmerized from the opening to the dazzling finish.
