Dave Nicholls Music
Well, that's me! Since being made redundant as an ICT Systems Manager in May 2014 I have been concentrating on music in a number of different, ever-evolving acts, involving many very talented people. You can see details of those by clicking on the "Band, Duos & Solo" tab above. I have also been recording songs, mainly covers, in my own right, because I really like them! The plan is to make a living at doing one of my greatest passions, so we'll see how that pans out in the future. There will be many recordings and because of COVID-19, not so many gigs!

When not playing with Mind The Gap, Nicholls & Simes and the mighty Dv8, I do some stuff on my own!

Rock It Is But Is It Progressive?
Dv8 is our 6-piece band performing original music mostly written by myself. I have a large back catalogue and am working through these to record and play. Most of my songs have a rockish feel to them and according to Jay they fit into the "Steely Zapper" genre and then someone added that we sound a bit like Aztec Camera, so our genre is now Steely Aztec Zapper! Oh, and I guess some are a bit "Progressive Rock". We are all excited about sharing our work with live audiences and hope to be with you whenever we can!
