In 2004, The Long Players began packing Nashville clubs and theaters with faithful front-to-back renditions of classic albums. The combination of The Long Players as "house band" with the amazing variety of guest artists they have enlisted over the last six years to bring these classic LP's to life has become a staple of Nashville's local music scene and has garnered national attention with feature news stories from NPR's All Things Considered, the AP Wire Service and Reuters / Billboard Magazine.

At each of the band’s public shows, The Long Players have chosen to take a portion of the proceeds and donate it to charity. On more than a few occasions, the money has gone directly to musicians to supplement health care expenses when insurance wasn’t enough.  At other times the money has been donated to organizations like Music Cares, The Red Cross, Doctors Without Borders, Alive Hospice and others.

Despite ever-changing musical styles, The Long Players have proven adept at recreating the sound and feel of these classic records while their guest singers add their own spin to the songs. Every show becomes a new experience with the performance of a different record and with different guest vocalists. You won’t see the same show twice! Please join us for the next album we celebrate!!
