The Varsity Center has announced that author Rhonda Nelson and her husband, Little River Band’s lead singer Wayne Nelson, will provide an evening of stories and song on Friday, Dec. 8. An Evening with Rhonda Nelson and Wayne Nelson is part of an acoustic holiday tour to promote Rhonda Nelson’s new book, “A Different Life.” Music will be provided by Wayne Nelson and Little River Band members Greg Hind and Chris Marion. Rhonda will share behind-the-scenes stories from “A Different Life” between Little River Band hits such as “Cool Change,” “Lady” and “Reminiscing.” The set list also will feature songs from the group’s holiday album, “A Little River Band Christmas.” The Balcony Stage presentation will be similar to a songwriter’s night, with Wayne and Rhonda providing a glimpse into what life on the road is really like. Since 2000, Rhonda and Wayne have traveled across the United States together, sharing a love of classic rock music, seeking out their favorite wineries, and socializing with new and old friends. In her debut book project, Rhonda pulls back the curtain on celebrity life and offers readers the chance to hear never-before-told stories, enjoy treasured family recipes and photos, and experience all things pertaining to life on the road. Rhonda, Wayne and Little River Band members will stay after the show for autographs and photos. The Dec. 8 show begins at 7 p.m. Doors will open at 6:15, and the Varsity Bar will open for purchase of local and other beer and wine, select cocktails, Excel soda and other items. Tickets are $15 and are available online at www.thevarsitycenter.org. A limited number of tickets are available at Plaza Records (816 E. Main, Carbondale) and at The Science Center, near the Macy’s entrance at University Mall. The Varsity is downtown Carbondale at 418 S. Illinois Ave. To keep up with events, follow us at facebook.com/varsitycenter. For more on Rhonda Nelson, go to her website, www.RhondaRaves.com.
