Nik and the Nice Guys

Nik and the Nice Guys are a high energy rock and roll band featuring 11 multi-talented musicians/performers. The group includes female singer/dancers (Les Femmes de Nik) and a horn section (the Niktones). Besides playing great mainstream rock and roll, the group conveys a touch of Saturday Night Live craziness, while at the same time encouraging audience participation and dancing. And if you have a special theme for your event, we can help with the presentation. Nik has performed shows wearing togas, Martian space outfits, white tux & tails, pajamas, in-line skates, and even Flintstone cartoon costumes. What mood can we create for you? Nik and the Nice Guys’ popularity stems, in part, from its role as houseband on two early ’90s TV shows: ESPN’s The Lighter Side of Sports and NBC’s syndicated The Bob Uecker Sports Show. Nice Guy performing credits also include numerous performance at Super Bowls, Winter and Summer Olympics, Canada’s Grey Cup Festival, special events hosted by Disney World, Sports Illustrated, ESPN, Lee Jeans, Reebok, Apple Computer, Chicago Blackhawks, Toronto Blue Jays, Time-Warner, and many more.
