The Nielsen Trust
The Nielsen Trust – a Midwest musical legacy of memories, dreams and nightmares. The Nielsen Trust promises an intimate look at the life and songs of a family that isn’t completely f#*ked up. A very special evening of songs and stories from the uniquely colorful world of growing up Nielsen. Not the American Osbournes.

Have you heard about that rockin’ new family band, the Nielsen Trust? Rick Nielsen, y’know, the guy from Cheap Trick? He, and two of his sons, have formed a side band. It’s gonna be cool! Like the
Griswolds on acid. The Nielsen Trust, established 2019, connects the family’s generations – a sign of trust — for very special evenings of songs and stories from the uniquely colorful world of growing up Nielsen.
Rick promises “a Midwest musical legacy – memories, dreams and nightmares” and notes, ominously, “The Nielsens are not your warm, fuzzy and cuddly musical group. We’re not the American Osbournes.” Or, as Miles puts it, “a way to experience music and stories between a father and his family, an intimate look at the life and songs of a family that isn’t completely f#*ked up.”
