Nick Clemons, the oldest son of E Street band's Clarence Clemons, will play a show in Fredericksburg Saturday night for the Fredericksburg Music Festival Summer Concert Series at Colonial Tavern.
The show starts at 6:30 p.m. and tickets can be purchased here.
The Nick Clemons Band is a New Jersey band with a total of seven members. Clemons, 40, plays guitar, harmonica and sings. Timmy Douglas plays bass, Joe Barker plays guitar, Joey Stann plays saxophone, Jim Squirrell plays trumpet, Eric Gonzalez plays drums and Jake Hughes plays the keyboard.
"We have some great musicians so we have fun and we definitely have a lot of interaction with our audience," Clemons said during an interview this week.
Clemons' father played saxophone for Bruce Springteen's E Street Band. He said during an interview this week that this is his first time playing Fredericksburg. He said he has family from Norfolk and he went to school in the Eastern Shore. The band's music is a mix of a lot of genres, but Clemons described it as the The Grateful Dead meets the E Street Band. His infuences are Bob Weir, the guitarist for The Grateful Dead, Ziggy Marley, Jimmi Hendrix, Bruce Springsteen and Neil Young.
"We want to show people what we've got and we’re not riding any coat tails," Clemons said.
