Band plays Big Sky Resort Jan. 27
JACKSON, Wyo. – Country rockers Lukas Nelson and Promise of the Real had an audience of 500 out of their seats and getting down before the end of their first song, turning Jackson’s civilized Center for the Arts into a rowdy cowboy bar for the duration of their Dec. 29 performance.
They’re scheduled to bring that high energy to Big Sky Resort’s Montana Jack on Friday, Jan. 27.
The band set the tone for the night in Jackson by opening with three new rocking tracks from a yet to be titled album, scheduled for release in May 2017.
The second song, a rollicking tale called “Running Shine,” tells the story of father and son moonshiners that Nelson loosely relates to his own upbringing with father Willie Nelson.
“I’m not ‘running shine,’” he said in an interview before the show, “but I’ve immersed myself in a business that is kind of a family business; it’s kind of a circus, and my dad’s not exactly the most law abiding citizen.”
Not only did Nelson inherit a bit of his father’s rapscallion ways, iconic nasal twang and innate musicality, but also his mastery of showmanship.
Nelson and his band mates, drummer Anthony LoGerfo and bassist Corey McCormick, have no trouble filling the stage with their presence. Whether Nelson is head-banging his shaggy ‘do, picking his guitar with his teeth or doing scissor kick calisthenics with McCormick—somewhat of an athletic feat in scuffed up cowboy boots—they’re as visually engaging as they are audibly.
They’re also attuned to the fact that their audience wants to be taken for a ride, and Nelson and POTR know precisely when to bring it down a notch and insert one of Nelson’s soul-slaying ballads—especially hard-hitting for the ladies in the crowd.
Two such highlights during the Jackson show were the heart-wrenching “Sound of your Memory” and a cover of his father’s “Crazy.” The latter offered a rare chance to see Nelson take a seat at a Steinway piano and perform a duet with captivating show-opener Nicki Bluhm that, with all due respect, put Willie and Emmy Lou Harris’s version to shame.
The evening covered all the bases and hit all the right notes—from a dusty hoe-down, to sultry blues, bare bone jams, good old rock ‘n’ roll, soulful love songs and the perfectly picked and placed cover. On this night it was none other than Paul Simon’s “Graceland” hit, “Diamonds on the Soles of her Shoes.”
Shannon McCormick, programming director for Jackson’s Center for the Arts, has been booking Lukas Nelson and Promise of the Real for nearly a decade, and had no doubt the band would generate a sold out show.
“Every once in a while, it’s great to have a band come in here and punch us in the nose,” McCormick said. “Jackson loves that rootsy rock ‘n’ roll and that’s what Lukas Nelson and Promise of the Real delivers.”
McCormick is such a fan that he’s road-tripping from Jackson to Big Sky to catch the Jan. 27 show at Montana Jack.
“That’s how excited I am about these guys,” McCormick said. “Get ready for a fun show because here it comes.”
Lukas Nelson and Promise of the Real perform at Big Sky Resort’s Montana Jack on Friday, Jan. 27, at 9 p.m. For tickets and more information visit explorebigsky.com.
This show is being co-produced by Outlaw Partners (publisher of EBS) and Big Sky Resort.

Outlaws never die; they just headline new music festivals. On Sunday, September 18th, the inaugural Outlaw Music Festival gets underway in Scranton, Pennsylvania, with preeminent rebels Willie Nelson and Neil Young topping the bill.
A daylong celebration of artists who go against the grain, the concert also features Lee Ann Womack, Brothers Osborne, Chris Robinson Brotherhood and Sheryl Crow, with more performers to be announced at a later date. As usual, Nelson will be joined by his Family Band, while Young is backed by Promise of the Real, featuring Nelson’s sons Lukas and Micah Nelson. The group has been supporting Young throughout his summer tour.
The Outlaw Music Festival will be held at the Pavilion on Montage Mountain, a site that has become a destination for music fans throughout the Northeast. Since 2012, it’s hosted the Peach Music Festival, the Allman Brothers Band’s annual gathering. This year’s Peach, featuring Gregg Allman, will be held August 11th through 14th. Nelson headlined last year’s event.
The outlaw-country genre remains one of the most popular — and profitable. On February 26, 2017, the second Outlaw Country Cruise, with Blackberry Smoke, the Mavericks, Shooter Jennings and Steve Earle, will depart Tampa for Cozumel.
Tickets for the inaugural Outlaw Music Festival go on sale Friday, July 29th.

At Neil Young & Promise Of The Real’s first show of 2016 back in April, the band was joined by the legendaryWillie Nelson in Texas. Last night in Rome, Willie came out towards the middle of the show to sit-in with Neil & POTR, which features his sons Lukas Nelson and Micah Nelson, on two songs at Terme di Caracalla.
Willie Nelson emerged 11 songs into the set to lend a hand on “Are There Any More Real Cowboys” and then led the group through the Neil & POTR debut of The Red Headed Stranger’s “On The Road Again.” Both of Willie’s guest spots came after his son Lukas fronted the ensemble on another version of the Italian classic “Nel Blu Dipinto Di Blu,” aka “Volare.” There were plenty of other highlights in Rome including the year’s second “Mr. Soul,” the rare “Vampire Blues” and a jammed-out “Rockin’ In The Free World.” But the show will also be remembered for Young finally dusting off one of his most beloved songs with Promise Of The Real.
Last night’s encore in Rome was “Hey Hey, My My (Into The Black).” While Neil Young has played the Rust Never Sleeps rocker over 500 times in his career, Friday marked the first time he teamed with Promise Of The Real on the song. It also was Neil’s first performance of “Hey Hey, My My (Into The Black)” in any form since his Summer 2013 Tour with Crazy Horse. The tour continues tonight in Lucca, Italy.
Watch fan-shot footage of “Are There Any More Real Cowboys?” and “On The Road Again” from Rome:
