Matthew and Gunnar Nelson, aka “Nelson,” rose to the top of the popular music charts in the early 1990’s with three top-ten singles, four number-one MTV videos and five Top-40 Billboard hits. In “Ricky Nelson Remembered” the brothers lend their soaring sibling harmonies to the songbook of their legendary rock ‘n roll father. While the duo performs the hit songs from the Ricky Nelson songbook, such as “Hello, Mary Lou” and “Garden Party,” the show is also intended as a deeply intimate experience; the production features stories and multi-media imagery of life inside three generations of stardom, including remembrances of grandparents Ozzie and Harriet Nelson. The Nelson’s continue to write, perform worldwide, including collaborations with Yusuf (Cat Stevens) and Paul McCartney, and have produced seven albums on their own Stone Canyon Records label.
The Tonto Community Concert Association is committed to bringing quality entertainment to the Rim Country through an annual concert series and support of the fine arts in Payson schools. This series is intended as an enriching cultural experience for the people of Payson and those in surrounding communities.
