Event Description

Bob Weir Acoustic Bob Weir and David Nel­son Band
fea­tur­ing mem­bers Bar­ry Sless, Pete Sears, John Molo & Mook­ie Siegel and intro­duc­ing Katie Skene

Regret­ful­ly, David Nel­son, who was recent­ly diag­nosed with colon can­cer, will be unable to per­form as sched­uled on March 16–18 at the Sitz­mark. How­ev­er, we are very pleased to announce that David’s long time friend Bob Weir of the Grate­ful Dead will be join­ing his DNB band­mates for 3 spe­cial nights of music.

LIMIT 4 Tick­ets Per Per­son

The David Nel­son Band has been record­ing and per­form­ing around the coun­try since 1994. Their broad musi­cal palette spans the Almost Acoustic style that Nel­son played with Jer­ry Gar­cia, through roots rock n’ roll and coun­try-rock, to full blown psy­che­del­ic, jazz tinged space jams. The DNB per­form David’s com­po­si­tions (some co-writ­ten with Grate­ful Dead lyri­cist Robert Hunter), select cov­ers, and sev­er­al Grate­ful Dead clas­sics upon which Nel­son appeared on the orig­i­nal album releas­es. These styl­is­tic ele­ments, com­bined with plen­ty of spon­ta­neous free form impro­vi­sa­tion, cre­ate a sound that is unique­ly David Nel­son Band. Though the orig­i­nal songs are most­ly writ­ten by Nel­son, the devel­op­ment of all the mate­r­i­al is a ful­ly col­lab­o­ra­tive effort. The Nel­son, Sless, Siegel, Sears, Molo Band as a name is a bit cum­ber­some – though in real­i­ty, that’s what they are.

Please Note: You can pick up your tick­ets at the Tram Tick­et Office at The Hotel Alyeska between 10am and 8pm every day from March 11 – 18. (You’ll need your ID to pick up your tick­ets.) There will be a will-call booth at the door start­ing at 8pm each night of the show, but the line could get long, so save time and pick your tick­ets up in advance!
