Lord Nelson is two brothers, one greasy trombone, backbone bass, pocket drums, dirty south guitar and a hell of a lot of fun. Playing rock and roll that is at once accessible and original, Kai and Bram Crowe-Getty formed the band in 2012 to bring the same sense of intimacy to house parties and outdoor pavilions alike. The raw energy that these five Virginia boys display each night has created a party that connects with a diverse audience. Their original compositions are varied and range from slow burning, harmony laced anthems to back beat pulsing floor stompers.

Lord Nelson’s music is anything but ironic — their lyrical roots grow from a sense of place and visceral life experiences. Their songs not only celebrate a time when hardworking rock and roll bands thrived throughout America, but also pay tribute to musical mentors, lost loved ones and rowdy nights on the town. This is an ambitious young group with a powerful live stage presence. There is a kinetic whirlwind when these guys hit the stage and it is certainly one that you want to be swept up in. Now a regionally touring act, Lord Nelson is a band on an upward trajectory.
