Ricky Nelson’s sons to perform live at this year's event!
Matthew and Gunnar Nelson, sons of the late Ricky Nelson, will perform live at the 2012 NSF Dahlgren 4th of July Celebration. The brothers, who have sold four million albums worldwide with hits that include "After the Rain," "(Can't Live Without Your) Love and Affection," and "More Than Ever," will also play many of the chart-topping hits of their father. Reunited with their father's Stone Canyon Band, the brothers will perform many of the hits their father made famous, including "Travelin' Man," "Poor Little Fool," "Hello Mary Lou," "I'm Walkin'" and "Garden Party," among many others. The band will perform at 7 p.m., following a performance by local favorites Glass Onion Band. The event will also include kids' games and crafts, a zipline, car show, food vendors and lots of fun! Event is free and open to the public.
