The Monday Musical Club of Tillamook will welcome back a fan-favorite on Monday, Feb. 25, presenting the velvety-smooth three-part harmonies of Derik Nelson & Family.
“We had them a couple years ago, and people just loved them,” said Adam Schwend, the club’s director of cultural events. “When they called and said they would be coming back through our part of the Northwest we knew we had to welcome them back with open arms.”
Derik, Riana and Dalten have been performing together since childhood, starring in shows all over the United States and around the world. Their performances run the gamut of popular music and original tunes, making each show relatable and enjoyable for music fans of nearly every genre.
“They’re not only masters of music, they are also masters of visual, lighting, and audio,” Schwend said. “They put on a show that’s unlike anything you’ve ever seen or heard; you’re fully immersed in the performance that has all these different components.”
Audience members can expect pristine sound, perfectly-blended three-part harmony vocals, a state-of-the-art light show and an integrated 20-foot video display featuring the “Derik clones.”
“He records himself singing different parts of a single song,” Schwend said, “Everything from bass to soprano in nine different parts and then projects each part onto a different video screen.”
Derik, who is the lead guitarist on FOX’s hit show “Glee,” creates music inspired by home, family and the seasons of the Pacific Northwest.
Backed with warm acoustic guitar, these genuinely kind, charming and talented siblings have a bond that’s palpable, both on stage and off.
Monday’s show will start at 7 pm in the Don Whitney Auditorium at Tillamook High School, 2605 12th Street.
Tickets, $25, are available at the door or at Eventbrite.com. As always, students can attend for free.
