January Concert Guide


On her online biography, Raelyn Nelson says, “‘I don’t really have any desire to be a “solo-artist.” Everyone in my family who plays music has always placed a lot of importance on band chemistry . . . . Our band can almost read each other’s minds. Why would I mess with that?’” Humble words spoken by Nelson, the granddaughter of country legend Willie Nelson. You can see the emphasis on group over performer on the album cover of the Raelyn Nelson Band’s 2014 self-titled debut EP. Rather than have Nelson front and center, all four band members stand side by side. The photograph also pays tribute to the Ramones’ first album. However, the album design isn’t the only thing that harks back to the Ramones. Songs like “Brother” draw from punk as well as country in a move similar to one made by another country grandchild, honky-punk Hank Williams III. The Raelyn Nelson Band plays Club Cafe. Aris Paul and Alyssa Hankey open. 8 p.m. 56-58 S. 12th St., South Side. (CM)

January Shows Worth Seeing Pittsburgh
"Holiday break is almost over; it's time to experience live music again.

While the January concert calendar is a little light, there are still good shows to see, including: The Raelyn Nelson Band entertains Thursday at Club Cafe on Pittsburgh's South Side. The rocking country band is fronted by Willie Nelson's granddaughter, who proves the apple didn't fall far from the tree as she charmingly sings about drinking, toking and yearning for wide open spaces." -Scott Tady
Concerts to see in Pittsburgh

By Scott Mervis / Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Bands are brave to tour in January, and they are rewarded with fans who are fighting cabin fever, making for some special shows in the coldest month of the year.

Jan. 5: Raelyn Nelson Band

The music is deep in the genes for the granddaughter of Willie Nelson, who brings her Raelyn Nelson Band to Club Cafe on the South Side tonight.

In 2014, Rolling Stone Country described the country/garage band it as “A country Runaways” and “Cheap Trick fronted by Loretta Lynn.” She worked with indie producer Jonathan Bright, who filled out the band with the rhythm section of his hard rock group Defense Wins Championships.

“I don’t really have any desire to be a ‘solo-artist,’” she says in her bio. “Everyone in my family who plays music has always placed a lot of importance on band chemistry, on stage, off stage and in the studio. Our band can almost read each other’s minds. Why would I mess with that?”

Willie Nelson must be one proud Papa!

We already know that Willie's children are incredibly talented (who remembers Wille singing at home with his sons, or Willie and his daughter, Paula, singing "Have You Ever Seen The Rain"?!). But now we've discovered another talented Nelson that we can add to the list - Willie's beautiful and talented granddaughter, Raelyn Nelson!

Although Raelyn has a famous last name, she has made it clear she wants to pave her own musical path! In an interview with Rolling Stone, Raelyn admitted, "At first, I was nervous to say I was Willie's granddaughter. I'm very proud of him, but I didn't want to be compared to him because I'm not a great player. But when I sent him our music he was ecstatic, saying, 'Let's get it out there!' Before I do anything, I text him — and he'll send me a big smiley face. He's so supportive."

Her Papa Willie must be very proud! Raelyn has made a name for herself as singer-songwriter, and has an awesome country-rock band called The Raelyn Nelson Band.

So when Raelyn hopped on the Farm Aid stage in 2014, we couldn't wait to see what she had in store for us! She called her Aunt Amy to join her, and the two sang an unbelievable rendition of The Raelyn Nelson Band's "Moon Song". And to make it even better, the album version of the song features a guest appearance by her Papa Willie!

We can't get enough of all these talented Nelsons!

Check out the video, and we're sure y'all will be as dazzled as we were!
