Rooted in the "oldies"- Nick Patyk is a classic-rock raised, Brooklyn-based musician. Ranging from a more John-Mayer-esc softer side to more "Springsteen and Motley Crue had a baby", Nick will learn whatever tunes you want for your event, provided compensation is fair for doing so, and will play his originals as well, but only if you want!
What to Expect
Whether you want "main attraction" entertainment, or something soothing and pleasant in the background to enhance the general vibe, I'm happy to fine tune my playing, set list, and mannerisms to best suit whatever it is that you aim to deliver to your guests (I'm also an experienced line cook if you need emergency help in the kitchen!!! :)
I still remember being 9 years old and hearing Bruce Springsteen’s “Badlands” for the first time. There was this powerful warmth that spread through my body and stopped at my soul. I felt like I’d been awakened by some great spirit—something bigger than I’d ever be. And that’s the spirit that calls me to write my music, and to share it with you. I want everyone who hears it to be awakened like I was when I heard Bruce for the first time.
My music is a mix of all my favorite classic rockers—like Skynyrd, Zep, Clapton, and Jimi— wrapped up in modern sound design and a fresh approach to providing the same soul of the classics.
Born of “vintage” influences, from the Beatles to Springsteen, my music’s gonna hit you hard and leave you wanting more. I also love all kinds contemporary music— Rihanna, John Mayer, Ray Lamontagne, Ariana Grande, Eminem, The Script, Joey Badass, and Brandi Carlile to name a few. I try to deliver a listening experience that is as powerful as it is precise, and if you don’t like what I’m puttin’ down, please let me know how it could be better. Because I’m here to deliver you the ultimate musical experience, no matter what it takes
Additional Booking Notes
I can perform totally acoustic, or bring my own amplification equipment, consisting of a small Fishman Amplifier through which both guitar and vocals will flow. It all depends on what you're looking for, your expected crowd size, etc, so as long as we communicate, everything will go smoothly.
