"Ricky Nelson Remembered" is a tribute to the rock 'n' roll legend. His sons, Matthew and Gunnar, will be performing some of Ricky's hit songs as well as their own.

The Nelson family is the only family to have 3 generations of number-1 hit songs. They are the grandsons of Ozzie and Harriet Nelson.

“We had huge success that everyone thought was overnight thing, but we worked 10-years on that first album and playing in clubs at a very young age, so it was like the world's longest overnight success. Here we are 20-years later and we're still making music and still doing our thing.”

This is the 25th anniversary of the plane crash that took Ricky Nelson's life. Tickets are still available for the 8-pm show at the Fargo theatre.
