Nick Nichols

Nick has been playing drums (officially) since the 8th grade, but if you count setting up the pots and pans in the kitchen, it's been much longer. Since the pots and pans days he has continued to perform and teach at all levels, from Elementary school to the University level.

Nick has performed on drum set (#TheBestSeatInTheHouse) with bands and artists such as Theophilus, Coke Mule OTG, Christopher Kincaid, Emily Moore from fun., Andrew Springman Band, the Nortonics, and performs as an independent artist. Nick has performed on marching percussion with the Western Carolina University Pride of the Mountains Marching Band, and Carolina Thunder Percussion; and taught marching percussion at various high schools across North Carolina and Virginia, the East Carolina University Marching Pirates, Forza East Percussion Ensemble, and currently the UNC Charlotte Pride of Niner Nation Marching Band since 2014. Nick also teaches general music and choir at Polo Ridge Elementary School in Charlotte, NC.
