The musical collaboration of husband and wife singer-songwriters, Darwin and Dana Nelson (aka The Mayor & First Lady of Lucedale) known as "Double Dee" has taken them far from coastal Gulfport and their small town roots of Lucedale, Mississippi and carried them across the country where they have created a name for themselves at numerous songwriting festivals, house concerts, and top flight venues. Darwin and Dana have released seven albums since 2006, including their most recent "Adjust The Sails", produced by their friend and legendary singer/songwriter/producer Keith Sykes from Memphis, Tenn. They have been touring in promotion of their new album since the spring.
They are regular Margaritaville performers from New Orleans to Pensacola Beach as well as entertained audiences ages 2-92 at other venues from Texas to Florida. The acoustic duo has been described by others as Americana/Folk/Gulf Western/Country, blending harmonic originals with a Mississippi accent. These two have opened up for such recording artists as Keith Sykes, Mac McAnally, Ronnie McDowell, Jeff Bates, and Darrell Worley among others. They have entertained for Parrotheads at pre and post Jimmy Buffett concerts, festivals and events from Pensacola Beach, and New Orleans to Galveston, Austin and Illinois.
