Nicko is a solo singer/guitarist using backing to create the sound of a full band. He can also do just acoustic. Nicko covers a range of well know music from the 60's through to current, including Jack Johnson and the Doors to name a few.


HI, just used Nicko's talents at a small Christmas party 2012, very happy with his playlist, and willingness to fit in with our plans for the night. Easy to get along with, liked the surprize options of smoke and lighting, and very delighted at short notice booking period. I am happy to recommend Nicko for an easy to work with and responsive musician. Thanks Nicko

Nicko is a solo guitarist/vocalist who uses backing tracks to create the sound of a full band and also provides the option for acoustic performances for a more chilled out sound. Nicko has been doing gigs around north Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast for the last 5 years, previous to that he was doing gigs around Maryborough and Hervey Bay for 5 years. Nicko's musical career started out with a three piece band named Horde who performed origionals as well as covers. When the band broke up he continued as an acoustic soloist then moved on to beef up his sound with backing.

Nicko performs well known music suitable for all ages covering a wide range of artists including Jack Johnson, the Doors, Coldplay, Snow Patrol and Santana to name a few as well as some origional songs. He creates his set lists according to the type of audience at the time and chooses songs people will likely know and enjoy.

Nicko also has a range of harder edge music reserved for the right audience including covers from artists such as Metallica, Nirvana,Queens of the stone age, H.I.M. and Creed -plus more.

Nicko is now offering a Bee Gees tribute act, a Jack Johnson tribute act, a Nirvana unplugged tribute and a queens of the stone age tribute act. Each are up to 2 hours. Also a 1 hour Eddie Vedder tribute act. You can choose any you like or none.
