Exceptional music your guests will enjoy, young and old alike. And we always take care to maintain the appropriate volume for each situation because we know that your guests will want to chat and enjoy themselves!

We book on a first come, first serve basis and up to 12 months in advance. Rates vary depending on the date, travel distance, number of musicians, etc. For a hassle-free, no obligation quote for your event please email us at midwest-media@cox.net (Hotmail users please call) with the date, location and approximate number of hours needed. Or call us at 405.286.1319 and we'll get back to you as soon as we can.

More than a Trio

While the trio consists of Heather Nelson on vocals/piano, bassist Johnny Nelson and Mike Walker on drums, we also offer a range of options to fit any situation or budget - from a simple duo for smaller events, to a Deluxe five piece band with sax & guitar for larger functions. We can even DJ a dance party set later in the evening with a custom song list chosen by you – the best of both worlds for one great price! We’re always happy to hear what you have in mind for your event and offer suggestions if requested to help you choose the perfect option that’s right for you.

We'll provide everything

No piano at your venue? No problem, Heather uses her own high quality keyboard at most of the events we play (the same one used in our audio samples). Usually the only thing we'll need is access to an electrical outlet  - we provide everything else - all sound equipment necessary to perform for your event and our space requirements are very flexible, accommodating any situation. We can also make any announcements you would like.

Booking is simple

To secure a booking we'll send you a simple one page contract by mail or email – your choice. Simply review, sign and return it along with a small deposit and your date is locked in. We’ll send back a fully signed copy for your records right way. The balance isn't due until the day of the event. Payment can be made by check, cash or credit cards through www.PayPal.com.

Corporate clients will receive an invoice/contract and the deposit can be waived so you'll only need to process one check.

Client Testimonials

"We booked Heather and her trio plus a sax player for our wedding and we are STILL receiving compliments on the music! The atmosphere that the Heather Nelson Trio created fit perfectly into our venue and the holiday season. We could not have asked for better song selection, professionalism, communication, or overall level of talent. Having been a musician myself for over twenty years, I have tremendously high expectations of musical groups, and Heather and her group actually exceeded them. I absolutely recommend the Heather Nelson Trio to anyone looking for a wonderful live music experience. Thank you Heather!" - Jeremy B, Dallas, TX - Wedding Reception - Rosewood Mansion On Turtle Creek

"The Heather Nelson Trio was one of the best decisions we made for our reception. From the very start they responded immediately to our inquiry and spent all the time we needed to discuss the details. They were extremely professional and such a pleasure to work with. We added a saxophonist as well. They played exactly what we wanted and sounded just like we hoped they would (we only heard them online, had never heard/seen them in person/live). We had so many compliments and everyone (all ages) enjoyed their music. They made our reception so very special and so memorable." – Cynthia S., Wedding Reception - Harwelden Mansion - Tulsa, OK
