Nicky Lee & the Wiz
Nicky Lee & the Wiz
Nicky Lee is a Singer/Songwriter who incorporates elements of Soul, Folk, Blues, and Reggae creating an easy going yet deep listening experience. His songs interpret a reflection of social distortion and personal emotion through a story telling-type style. As the former front man of Reggae/Soul band Nesta, the Richmond based group became a staple in the cities music scene from house shows, to larger venues such as, The National, The Broadberry, and their home base at The Camel. Now-a-days you can catch him performing throughout the region acoustically, either as a solo or duo act.
FeelFree
FeelFree
A sound we all can call home. Listening to Washington D.C.-based band FeelFree's most recent EP entitled "The Ebb Tide", listeners are surrounded by infectious reggae rhythms layered with jazz harmonies. Mix in blues-tinged guitar work, catchy vocal melodies and a hard-hitting horn section, FeelFree's genre bending reggae is a brand new sound. Their diverse array of instrumentation allows them to effortlessly blend reggae, funk, jazz, and rock influences and has audiences fist-pumping and slow-dancing all in the same breath at one funky reggae party you won't want to miss. There is something for everyone in FeelFree's music, a song for any time of day.

Born and bred in the cultural "melting-pot" that is Washington D.C.'s metro area where styles as different as punk-rock, Central American reggaeton, and D.C. go-go music clash on the daily, FeelFree's own evolution has been ten years in the making. As youngsters, Andrew Pfeiffer, Evan Hulehan, and Bryan Frank began composing original tunes in seventh grade. Fast-forward 6 years, FeelFree began seriously writing, performing, and recording in and around Alexandria, VA after adding Garret Clausen on bass and Colin Cantfil on trumpet in 2010. In 2014, they added the multi-talented Davey Hoen to the mix on keyboards rounding out their vibrant sound.

Their live show exhibits FeelFree's raw, powerful energy and impressive live musicianship and has listeners hooked on their innovative, yet accessible tunes. They are quickly gaining popularity in and around Washington D.C. and now have 2 east coast tours under their belt. Slated to record a new album this winter, FeelFree's horizons are ever-expanding. Their music is for the everyday work-hard, play-hard music fan who appreciates life for the people we share it with, the challenges we face, and the good times we celebrate. FeelFree.
