I drove to the College Bar in Stillwater last weekend to see a band out of Oklahoma City called Nicnos.
It was worth the hour drive and the cover charge because these guys rock.
I loved their original “Down to the Riverbed.” If that song doesn’t become a hit, I’d feel a loss for the music listeners of the world.
The group has been together since they were in high school and had to sneak the youngest member in because he wasn’t old enough to play bars.
They are on a tour of the east coast now and will be returning for their CD release party at The Belle Isle Brewery on April 16.
I recommend you follow their trip and music on their facebook page.
Not only that, but this band of hotties have started a non -profit program taking their band to the local community by generously sharing their time, talents and positive attitudes with high school students.
They allow students in high schools where they are sharing their program to participate in the “band experience” and raise money through their concerts to buy instruments for the school.
The band members said they will be appearing at the Rodeo Opry on April 19 at a mentors workshop presented in part by county music legend and Broadway star, Gary Morris. Nicnos, Morris and other seasoned music teachers from Oklahoma will host a workshop and will record the event.
They play rock/blues and add a fiddle. The band members consist of Josh Cox on lead vocals and acoustic guitar, Nick Sigman on lead guitar, Blake Parks on fiddle and vocals, Jerred Bauer on drums and vocals and Jared Gaiser on bass.
