About Us

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 much more besides!

Dv8 Coventry
Rock It Is But Is It Progressive?


Dv8 Coventry is our 6-piece studio 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 you!
