Derik Nelson & Family

  • Munster High School Auditorium 8808 Columbia Avenue Munster, IN, 46321 United States (map)

Raised in the Pacific Northwest, Derik Nelson & Family's signature sound features velvety three-part pop/folk vocal harmonies only a family can deliver. Siblings Derik, Riana, and Dalten have been performing together since childhood. They’ve garnered over 3.6 million views on YouTube, performed in over 90 cities across the USA, and reached over 50,000 students of all ages with educational music workshops and fundraising assemblies. Derik has appeared regularly as the lead guitarist on television’s “Glee,” among other shows.

Derik Nelson & Family has performed the US National Anthem at Seattle Seahawks NFL, Seattle Sounders FC, and Portland Trailblazers NBA home games, and are proud to tour nationwide with their own headlining concert as a family.

Derik’s interactive “clones” are featured throughout the show on the 5 screen video “wall.” The multiple “Derik clones” play many different instruments as a “virtual band.” This innovative technical marvel designed by Dalten uses the latest in audio/video technology to take audiences on an aural and visual journey through time, space, an impressive array of landscapes, weather conditions, and musical “settings.”

Listeners will be impressed with the perfectly blended three-part-harmony vocals, in addition to Derik’s thoughtful arrangements of cover songs from a variety of genres, styles, and eras. Derik's original music is very well received by all ages, with lyrical themes of home, family, and the seasons of the Pacific Northwest. Backed with warm acoustic guitar, and "silk on the ears" musicality, these genuinely kind, charming, and talented siblings have a bond that’s palpable, both on stage and off. Audiences of every age are sure to be mesmerized from the opening to the dazzling finish. It's a concert experience unlike any other.
