Meet Nick Da Sticks, our new drummer. After regretfully losing our previous drummer to unavoidable work commitments we were on the lookout for a new drummer. We advertised on Band Mix for a drummer for a Funk band and almost immediately we got a response from Nick who was looking to join a funk band after being inspired by one of our awesome performances at the Nightingale in Bicester. So as fate would have it Nick became the new guy. He hit the ground running and picked up a set list of over 30 songs with ease. Learning new songs quick was no problem to him at all
Nick has proofed to be a great asset to the band. He is a great drummer with good time, but he also uses Yamaha, Roland and Zildjian electric kits which has totally transformed our sound as a band. The levels can now be kept much more consistent and we are able to replicate so many of those specific electric dance sounds essential to recreating our favorite funk and disco tracks.”I was watching GetFunky at the Nightingale in Bicester and thought they were great. Then they started playing ‘Everyone’s a Winner’ by Hot Chocolate and they totally nailed it, it was so cool! I thought to myself, now that’s the kind of band I want to be in. Pulling unexpected classics out of the bag and tearing the roof off. Two months later I was the new Drummer. I couldn’t believe it!”
Nick brings a wealth of experience having previously played in covers/original bands ranging from rock to folk. He lives for the groove, not for the chops!
Get yourself along to our next public gig and here our new electric funky sound!
