HARRINGTON — The Entertainment Department at Harrington Raceway and Casino announced today that Little River Band will perform at Exhibit Hall on Saturday, Nov. 17 at 8 p.m. as part of the Live On Stage series line-up.

Through the 1970s and 80s, LRB enjoyed chart success with multi-platinum albums and hits like: “Reminiscing,” “Cool Change,” “Lonesome Loser,” “The Night Owls,” “Take It Easy On Me,” “Help Is on Its Way,” “Happy Anniversary,” “We Two,” “Man On Your Mind,” “The Other Guy,” and “It’s A Long Way There.”

Worldwide album, CD sales and digital downloads now top 30 million and LRB set a record for having had Top 10 hits for six consecutive years.

Bassist/vocalist Wayne Nelson joined the band in 1980, and worked alongside founding members to create the unique LRB sound. Later that same year, guitarist Stephen Housden joined LRB bringing a rock element into the band’s sound and helped contribute to their string of Top 10 hits.

Mr. Nelson has contributed his vocal and bass guitar talents on 22 Little River Band albums and Mr. Housden continues to write and participate in all things Little River Band. In 2004 LRB was inducted into the Australian Recording Industry Association Hall of Fame at the 18th Annual ARIA Music Awards and in September 2015 the band was awarded Casino Entertainer of the Year at the G2E Gaming Expo in Las Vegas.

Nashville guitarist Colin Whinnery shares lead vocal duties with Mr. Nelson and plays rhythm and lead guitar. Keyboardist Chris Marion is a Dove Award-winning producer. Rich Herring plays lead guitar and Ryan Ricks is on drums.
