Blackberry Smoke and The Nielsen Trust to perform in a socially distanced concert in Rockford, IL

Live music is back!

Blackwater Smoke

On Friday, Sept. 25th, Blackberry Smoke, The Nielsen Trust featuring Rick Nielsen of Cheap Trick, and The Wild Feathers will perform at a unique socially distanced concert at Rockford Rivets Stadium.

Blackberry Smoke

American rock band Blackberry Smoke - Made up of Charlie Starr (vocals, guitar), Paul Jackson (guitar, vocals), Richard Turner (bass, vocals), Brit Turner (drums) and Brandon Still (keyboards) - has become known for a singular sound indebted to classic rock, blues, country and folk. Since their debut in 2004, the Atlanta-based band has independently released six full-length albums and toured relentlessly, building a strong and loyal community of fans.

The Nielsen Trust

Have you heard about that rockin’ new family band, the Nielsen Trust? Rick Nielsen, y’know, the guy from Cheap Trick? He, and two of his sons, have formed a side band. The Nielsen Trust, established 2019, connects the family’s generations – a sign of trust — for very special evenings of songs and stories from the uniquely colorful world of growing up Nielsen.
