LITTLE RIVER BAND
River Band was the first Australian band to successfully conquer
foreign markets from an Australian base.
Within eight months of their birth, LRB had already scored three
Australian Top 20 singles and two Top Ten albums. In 1976, after
their self-titled debut album was released in the USA, the long
grind of 13 US tours in eight years had begun.
By 1982 they became the only act – from anywhere – to have a
top ten US single for six consecutive years.
Headlining their own major shows in America, and touring
internationally with the likes of the Doobie Brothers, Supertramp,
America, and the Eagles was a huge learning curve that honed LRB
into one of the finest live bands in the world.
Record success ran alongside – total record sales around the
world have eclipsed the 25 million mark. 16 hit singles by 1985,
as well as gold, platinum, and multi-platinum album sales awards.
All-told LRB have notched up eight top 10 singles in the US, where
just two of their songs, "Reminiscing"
and "Lady", have more than
8 million radio plays between them.
Through the years LRB has thrived as a highly respected and
constantly in-demand outfit, going about their craft with a
dedication to excellence and professionalism that few, if any, can
The present Little River Band lineup is stronger than ever; there
is a new element of youthfulness and vitality,with Wayne Nelson, who
began his LRB career in 1980, as lead vocalist; guitarist/vocalist Greg Hind;
Ryan Ricks on drums & vocals; Chris Marion on keyboards and
vocals; and Rich Herring on guitar and vocals.
LRB continues to look to the future, which promises to be a very special
one for a band that really has withstood the test of time.
