Nick began playing guitar at the age of 10. Coming from a musical family, he was taught the basics of guitar by his father. He then went on to take lessons from Jay Bouche who would prepare him to be in his first band at 13 years old. After years on the scene he went to hear Steve Masakowski play and knew he would like to pursue jazz. Playing a full time gig on Bourbon Street, he studied in the U.N.O. Jazz Studios program under Steve Masakowski, Hank Mackie, Ellis Marsalis, We Ke Wong Brody, and many others. He would then later land a gig with Vieux Carre and then Bobby Cure and the Summertime Blues for five years. Nick also has an original band Ellement that is captivating audiences and packing clubs all around town!
