Fans shouldn’t expect any live streaming shows from Little River Band leader Wayne Nelson says technical limitations with the band’s harmony driven sound and members living in different cities won’t permit streaming shows.
Nelson says: "We tried a couple. The fact that we're not all in one location -- I'm in Arizona, our keyboard player is in Dallas and then the other three guys are in Nashville. I have yet to see a platform that I thought was stable enough to handle our vocals. The music seems to load up that 'Internet pipe' really quickly with a lot of frequencies and a lot of information."
Nelson recently celebrated 40 years with the group and says he's looked for the right gear that could enable the band to achieve the sound have in clubs and theaters. So far, there’s nothing that satisfies the group.
Nelson also talks about why Little River Band will avoid streaming for now:
"They may be out there, but I have yet to see a group steaming that wasn't either arranged with separate videos and so on and so forth, and then compiled later, which is really not live. They try to assume that it's live. It just doesn't seem to have worked well enough for us to do what we would want to do and have it be the quality that we wanted."
