I believe that good music is good music regardless of era, genre or any other classification. I love playing a wide range of music, while focusing on the audience and what they want to listen to. The most important thing that a good cover artist can do is make it about the audience and not about the entertainer. I want to see people singing along, tapping their feet and having a good time. I really enjoy what I do and that is contagious to the audience. I am available for everything from private parties, events, wine bars, coffeehouses, bars and anywhere that needs good music.
I've been at a party Nick played at before and asked him to play my wife's birthday party. He was terrific - dependable, easy to work with and did a great job with a great playlist. He also played the entire time - no breaks! I highly recommend Nick for your party.
We had nick perform for my daughters college graduation party and couldn't be happier. Very easy to work with from beginning to end. His play list has something for everyone...our guest couldn't stop raving about him, they didn't want the night to end.
Nick was the perfect addition to our outdoor party. He played a great selection of songs and was so easy to work with from booking until the night was over. Definitely recommend Nick for any of your entertainment needs!
Nick was excellent to work with from hiring, planning and execution. He played endless requests, performed well and made our outing a great time!
As soon as I reached out to Nick to play an outdoor 40th birthday party I knew he would be the perfect fit. He is extremely talented, professional and fun to work with. He took the time to make sure he understood what the crowd would be like and made sure he knew which songs we wanted to hear. He sent a set list prior to the party and it was the perfect mix of music from various genres, old and new. He took requests and even brought an extra mic for some fun crowd participation! He came early to make sure everything was set up and working properly. He has a great sound system and additional lights. I honestly could not say enough good things about working with Nick. If you are looking for a great addition to your party, look no further:)
Last night Nick performed for the Plainfield Area Chamber Annual awards.... one word....AMAZING!!! The energy he brings into the room is amazing. Everyone loved it and we will eb sure to have him back :)
Nick played the guitar and sang for our elementary school's daddy daughter dance, and everyone loved him! He did an amazing job! I highly recommend him.
What a great experience! I booked Nick for my wife's 30th birthday party and I was blown away with him. Not only was his music great, but he was also incredibly accommodating. I asked Nick if he knew any Taylor Swift songs (becuase my wife is apparently a tween) and he didn't. He did, however, learn a couple for me, and they turned out amazing! He also learned some Katy Perry!
Nick also scouted out the location/space ahead of time, brought all of his own equipment (speakers, microphones, etc) and he also brought his own uplighting (which actually made a world of difference for the ambiance).
Also, our party ran a bit longer than I booked Nick for. Nick, without hesitation, agreed to play for another hour and even let us use his PA system while he was packing up.
I will absolutely hire Nick, again. A handful of guests also took his information and plan to book him in the near future.
Response from Nick Madsen:
What a great party Brian had...scored major points with his wife for the entire thing...So awesome when the crowd is into the music, having fun, singing and dancing...you can also check out my Taylor Swift in the video section of my profile. :)
What to Expect
Hire me and you will get a professional that comes with everything needed to make your guests happy. My equipment is high quality and doesn't take up a huge amount of space. My PA system is appropriate for groups up to 500 people (I can provide systems for larger groups if necessary, would quote that separately). I generally bring several lights for both front stage wash and/or stage uplighting as needed.
The audience should expect music that they know and enjoy, performed in a recognizable way and at a volume appropriate to the venue or event.
