Featured band Nelo is a quickly growing dynamic independent band with a strong following throughout the United States. Due to their energetic live shows, compulsive 21st century pop sound and infectious set of original songs, they are enjoying remarkable success and have performed for crowds at Austin City Limits Music Festival, South By Southwest, The House of Blues (Houston, Dallas, Myrtle Beach, and New Orleans), and have also performed in support of Sister Hazel, Everclear, Bob Schneider, Robert Randolph & The Family Band and many more. Nelo’s performance at Black Butte Ranch begins at 5:00pm.

With a simple guitar in hand and a voice of mysteriously solid power, Brent Alan will open the event. Central Oregon is home to Brent today, but as a voracious traveler, Brent Alan is perpetually spreading his music across the nation. The audience will enjoy an array of Brent’s talents, from rootsy, luminescent acoustic journeys to funky, gutsy, electric soul-jams. Opening performance begins at 4:00pm.
