Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real brought the goods Saturday afternoon during the Outlaw Music Festival Tour at the Veterans United Home Loans Amphitheater in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Nelson’s sweet sounding vocals and stunning guitar work demonstrated why the apple did not fall from the tree as the son of country music legend Willie Nelson.
Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real performed a set of amazing music beginning with ‘Die Alone’, ‘4 letter Word’, ‘Bad Case’, ‘Forget about Georgia’, ‘Find yourself’, ‘Carry On’ a (Crosby, Stills , Nash & Young cover), ‘Set Me Down on a Cloud’ and rounded out the set with ‘Something Real’.
Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real are Lukas Nelson on lead vocals and lead guitar, Corey McCormick on bass and backing vocals, Tato Melgar on percussion, Anthony Logerfo on drums and backing vocals and Logan Metz on slide guitar, keyboards and backing vocals.
Lukas Nelson has been carving out a legacy on his own for quite some time, as the front man of his own band, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, his regular gig as Neil Young’s band leader and lead guitarist — and of course, the never-ending road alongside his father in Willie Nelson & Family.[ngg src=”galleries” ids=”1277″ display=”pro_horizontal_filmstrip”]
